St.Patricks GAA notes   06/10/2011

It was very disappointed that our under 21 footballers failed to field a team in the county premier under 21 football championship last Friday evening. The club was down to play Mungret at Mick Neville Park under lights but with 30 minutes before the throw in the management team decided not to travel as some club players left themselves and the club down by not showing up for this fixture, round two will continue on this Friday evening when we’re are due to play Fr.Casey’s at 8.15pm again at Mick Neville Park in Rathkeale let’s hope that the players will response to their management team this time round. Our junior B footballers were second best to Patrickswell in the City junior B football championship last Sunday evening at Patrickswell going down by 3-04 to 1-04. Our junior A hurlers are back on the training field preparing for the upcoming County quarter final game against Kilmallock on weekending October 15th Last Saturday the clubs ran a very successful Girls football tournament at Rhebogue a report will appear in next week’s notes. Our under 14 footballers will travel out to Knockea to take on the home side South Liberties on this Saturday in the ¼ final of the County under 14 football championship throw in for this game is at 12noon. On Sunday evening last our under 13 hurlers took part in the Ratoath G.A.A. under 13 hurling tournament Christopher Mortell manager and Colm O Brien who looks after this team on the Day will have a report on the team’s performance in the tournament in the club notes next week. The Club ran a very successful poker classic last Friday evening in the clubhouse in Rhebogue. The entry fee was 30 Euros with cash prizes on the night the Club is planning to run it on the last Friday of every month for the next eight months it’s a fundraiser to try to offset the clubs new field development debt. Your support would be very welcome contact Owen O Shaughnessy at 0874175690 for more details.
Limerick’s national hurling league winners and Oireachtas tournament winners back in 1971 were honoured at last Sunday’s County senior hurling final at the Limerick Gaelic Grounds and the club was well represented last Sunday when John Frost, Liam Lawlor and Brendan Crosse R.I.P. were honoured. It was great to see St. Patrick’s men been remembered and to see John Frost, Liam Lawlor and Yvonne Crosse representing her Dad in saluting the large attendance at headquarters. The club was sad to hear on the recent death of Tom Fitzgerald of Corbally Road, Tom was a great supporter of the club and all at the club would like to sympathize to his family, Tom is survived by his wife Carmel, daughter Denise and son Vincent, Ar dheis dé so raibh anam dílis Tomás.

Thanking You
