The se­niors put in a good per­for­mance on Friday last against Coolkenno in the Keat­ing Tro­phy win­ning by three points, there are two games left to play to fin­ish out this sea­son.

The un­der-14 girls played St Ni­cholas last Sun­day in the Di­vi­sion 2 league play­off fi­nal in Bal­li­nakill.

The girls never got go­ing and found them­selves nine points down and de­spite cut­ting it back to two we couldn’t get that all im­por­tant goal and even­tu­ally we just ran out of time.

De­spite this loss the girls can be re­ally proud of them­selves hav­ing won the ‘A’ Shield ear­lier in the sea­son, so, even though the year fin­ished with a de­feat, any year you win a tro­phy is a good one.

Well done to the panel of girls on the day: Grace Mur­phy, Doire­ann Smyth, Cora Hef­fer­nan, Katie Smith, Alyssia Larkin, Laura Mur­phy, Alee­sha McMa­hon, Yas­min Phipps O’Con­nor, Re­becca Gil­lan, Laragh Davis, Una Power, Zara di To­fano, Alicia Far­rell, Kate­lyn O’ Toole and So­phie o Reilly. Thanks to Shayne, Shay, Kirsty and Bernie for look­ing after the girls all year

St Pa­trick’s GAA Club Draw 2017: This year the club is run­ning a draw to sup­port the fundrais­ing drive re­quired to de­velop a new pitch at our new Green­hill Road field. Tick­ets are €50 each and there will be a monthly draw at the end of Septem­ber, Oc­to­ber & Novem­ber.
