Lotto tick­ets can be pur­chased on­line, from any club of­fi­cer or at the fol­low­ing out­lets: Sea­mus O’Sul­li­van Master Butch­ers, O’Sheas Shop and Ser­vice Sta­tion, Poff Mo­tors, Noyeks, Byrnesworth, Rock Inn, Dwyer’s Bar, Skelper Quanes, Bet­tys Bar and Keane’s of Cur­ra­heen.


U6: We had a fun ses­sion with great num­bers this morn­ing & loads of help from par­ents. The kids are en­joy­ing get­ting fit­ter, more flex­i­ble & stronger ev­ery week. We are prac­tic­ing run­ning in dif­fer­ent direc­tions, weight bear­ing shoul­der ex­er­cises & land­ing from jumps in good tech­nique. The kick­ing & eva­sion & speed drills are re­ally im­prov­ing. Those who wanted to play a match had a high en­ergy game with the oth­ers hav­ing fun & games on the grass. Player of the week goes to Clodagh Kane for great de­ter­mi­na­tion to play matches de­spite a ball in the face in goals she picked her­self up & played on with no tears! Well done to all, see you next week U8: Our U8 boys and girls had a good turn out last Sun­day morn­ing. Well done to all who attended, es­pe­cially our player of the week Cian, and a huge thanks to the coaches. The An­nual John Mitchels foot­ball blitz is sched­uled for Satur­day 15th Septem­ber and we are plan­ning to par­tic­i­pate in the games for the un­der eight’s. This is a well or­gan­ised blitz that St Pats have been in­vited to and en­joyed par­tic­i­pat­ing in for the past few years so we hope that all of our un­der eight play­ers will be avail­able for the blitz.

U10: Our U10’s had a good train­ing ses­sion sharp­en­ing their skills un­der the watch­ful eyes of their coaches. A lot of fun was had with var­i­ous drills to fur­ther im­prove their skills. With the an­nual John Mitchels Blitz com­ing up this Satur­day, it is es­sen­tial that ev­ery child keeps prac­tic­ing their skills at home. U14 Girls: Our girls took on An­nascaul in Round 5 of the North Kerry Board last Tues­day in An­nascaul. It was a com­pet­i­tive match with some great scores and play by both sides but we fell short on the day. Well done to the girls for dis­play­ing great courage de­spite our lack of num­bers.

There is still a match to be played in this com­pe­ti­tion, de­tails of which will be made known next week.

U14 Boys: Our boys are train­ing un­der the watch­ful eyes of their coaches in prepa­ra­tion for the U14 St Bren­dan’s League where we will be play­ing in Group 2 against Churchill and Bal­ly­heigue this Sun­day 16th Septem­ber in Blen­nerville at 12 noon. We wish the team the best of luck in this com­pe­ti­tion.


Great win by our mi­nors in the semi-fi­nal of the Cen­tral Re­gion Com­pe­ti­tion, divi­sion 3 against the much fan­cied An­nascaul/ Lis­pole last Wed­nes­day evening. The crowds were treated to a pul­sat­ing en­counter that could have gone ei­ther way but for­tu­nately for us, we came out on the right side of this high scor­ing match. Fi­nal score was An­nascaul/ Lis­pole 4-12 St Pats 5-12. This vic­tory meant we were to play Castle­gre­gory in the fi­nals on Sun­day.

Fresh from our vic­tory dur­ing the week, we took on Castle­gre­gory last Sun­day in the fi­nal of Divi­sion 3 of the Cen­tral Re­gion Com­pe­ti­tion in Austin Stacks Park but un­for­tu­nately could re­pro­duce the hero­ics of dur­ing the week as we were de­feated by a stronger Castle­gre­gory side. Well done to the play­ers and man­age­ment team on get­ting this far and we wish the play­ers the best for the com­ing sea­son.

Team: Gavin Doody, Paddy Mur­phy, Damien Quirke, Michael Doody, Ian McCarthy, Cathal Fitzgib­bon, Martin Sav­age, Ali Gardezi, Pa­trick Dowl­ing, Dar­ragh Mo­ri­arty, Fer­gal O’Brien, Bradley Lynch, Cor­mac Lynch, Nathan Rowan, Niall McCarthy

Subs: James Friel, Ciaran O’Donoghue, Nathan Mo­ri­arty O’Shea


Hard luck to the St Bren­dan’s Board Mi­nor team and man­age­ment as they ex­ited the MFC last Wed­nes­day evening, los­ing to St Kier­ans by the nar­row­est of mar­gins on a score line of St Kier­ans 2-11 St Bren­dan’s Board 2-10.


Well done to the St Bren­dan’s Board Se­nior team and man­age­ment on their con­vinc­ing win against Shan­non Rangers last Satur­day evening in Tar­bert. Fi­nal scores were Shan­non Rangers 0-16 St Bren­dan’s Board 6-11. This vic­tory sees them through to the 3rd round where they will play Mid-Kerry the week­end of 15th/16th Septem­ber. As at the time of go­ing to press, the date, time and venue were yet to be con­firmed.


The wet weather didn’t de­ter lo­cals and well-wish­ers alike who turned up in large num­bers for The Tony O’Donoghue Memo­rial walk last Satur­day evening. The walk which be­gan at 5pm from the Wind­mill car park, headed back the canal, through the lock gates and in by the white wall, through Lo­her­can­non and back to the wind­mill via Hare Street was circa 5km. There was mu­sic later in Quanes and the signed jersey was won by He­len Mo­ri­arty. All money raised on the day will go to the Pal­lia­tive Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foun­da­tion. Or­gan­iser and daugh­ter of late Tony, An­drea, was ‘grate­ful and over­whelmed for the sup­port’ is al­ready look­ing for­ward to it next year.


The club would like to ex­tend its sym­pa­thy to the fam­i­lies and friends of Wil­liam (Billy) Grif­fin Spa Road.
