Our new gymnasium was formally opened on Wednesday night (25/4/12) during a social event at the clubhouse. In front of a large gathering, Monsignor Michael Lane blessed the gymnasium before joining Vice Presidents Michael Fitzgerald and Gerry Bennis for the ribbon cutting. After the formal opening, there were inspired speeches from Club Chairman Paul Foley, Club Vice President Gerry Bennis and Limerick County Board Vice Chairman Oliver Mann (former chairman). The theme of the speeches was recognition of the illustrious past and looking towards a bright future. The newly-constructed gymnasium should facilitate the latter.

The victorious Under 13 hurling and camogie teams from 2011 were presented with their medals by Gerry Bennis and Michael Fitzgerald. It was a great milestone for the club last year and indicated strong foundations for the future.

The club also took the opportunity to honour Michael Fitzgerald and Gerry Bennis with presentations in recognition of their outstanding service to Patrickswell. Their families were also in attendance and their wives Christina and Nora were also presented with a bouquet of flowers in recognition of their longstanding support.

December 2011: Work is now complete on the new Club Gym. This is a very important piece of infrastructure for the club in the preparation of its teams and represents a much more cost efficient approach to team preparation. Many thanks to all the club members who made a contribution, especially to Michael Joyce, Pat Dundon, Tom O’Brien, Willie Fenton and Nelius Hayes who worked on the construction and installation of the Gym.
