next in the quar­ter-fi­nal in St. Mary’s Cahir­siveen at 3pm but the boys were on form gath­er­ing an­other big win, 7-13 to 1-03.

Scott Sheri­dan con­verted four goals to be top scorer in this game. Jack Fox scored 1-03. Dy­lan Ka­vanagh had 1-02. Three points for Luke Kelly, a goal for Cal­lum Kelly, two points for Fionn Luddy and Mark O’Brien while Tom Hodgkin­son com­pleted the scor­ing with a point.

Declan O’Sul­li­van the Kerry Cap­tain who lifted the Sam Maguire Cup twice met with the team and man­age­ment and im­parted very wor­thy words of wis­dom. The lads headed to the white strand beach for some very welcome rest and re­cov­ery.

The boys faced An­na­clone from Ban­bridge in the semi-fi­nal on the Sun­day morn­ing in Fossa GAA Club, Kil­lar­ney, at 11.30am, more de­ter­mined than ever.

With a good lead at half-time they kept their heads down, win­ning 6-07 to 1-05. Luke Kelly was on fire scor­ing 4-04 with the other goals com­ing from Matthew Ryan and Cal­lum Kelly, Jack Fox with two points and Fionn Luddy with a point.

The Pat’s boys were head­ing to the Cup fi­nal in Direen (Le­gion) GAA Club, Kil­lar­ney at 2pm.

They were up against a strong Thomas­town op­po­si­tion who had de­feated their hosts Renard in the other semi-fi­nal by 5-10 to 2-03.

Our boys started well play­ing with the wind but Thomas­town found gaps and con­verted two goals.

Our lads re­grouped and went in at half time a point ahead 1-05 to 2-01.

Cian Kelly played a cap­tains role in the sec­ond half en­sur­ing we only con­ceded a point from a free.

With an ex­cel­lent dis­play of foot­ball the lads scored two goals in the first two min­utes of the sec­ond half against the wind.

The third goal of the half came just be­fore Cian Kelly was in­jured and had to leave the field on a stretcher.

The boys se­cured the Cup vic­tory with a fi­nal score of 4-05 to 2-02. Luke Kelly kept up his scor­ing rate with 2-01 and Cal­lum Kelly get­ting the two goals. Jack Fox, Fionn Luddy, Mark Whelan and Mark O’Brien all had sin­gle points to en­sure the St. Pat’s boys were crowned 2016 Di­vi­sion 10 Féile win­ners!

Jack Fox ac­cepted the tro­phy on be­half of the in­jured cap­tain Cian Kelly and his team mates.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the Feile 2016 panel of Padraig Cahill, Mark Whelan, Mark Evans, Ryan Ka­vanagh, Tom Hodgkin­son, Cal­lum Kelly, Dy­lan Ka­vanagh, Fionn Luddy, Paul Marah, Finn Egan Bar­ron, Darren O’Brien, Aaron Lough­lin, Cathal O’Bri­ain, Jack Fox, Matthew Ryan, Fionn O’Brien, Mark O’Brien, Luke Kelly, Cian Kelly, Frank Reynolds, Josh Wat­son, Jamie Noble, Scott Sheri­dan, Liam Con­nolly, Bill O’Brien and ev­ery­one in­volved en­joy the vic­tory!

We wish a speedy re­cov­ery to the Un­der-14 cap­tain Cian Kelly who was in­jured in the fi­nal min­utes of the fi­nal and Jamie Noble and Cathal O’Bri­ain who were un­able to play over the week­end due to se­ri­ous in­juries.

A big thank you to our hosts Renard GAA Club who made us most welcome to the scenic South Kerry. We had a fan­tas­tic time. The boys will talk about this fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for years to come.

Thank you to the Renard Club mem­bers who fol­lowed our lads to Direen for their fi­nal this af­ter­noon when they could have been watch­ing Ire­land play.

To all the par­ents and sup­port­ers who trav­elled the long dis­tance to South Kerry Thank you for your sup­port it was very much ap­pre­ci­ated.

The St Pa­trick’s team dur­ing the Féile in Mun­ster.
