8th November 2018

MINOR HURLERS: Patrickswell were defeated in the Minor County Final against a strong Garryspillane team at the Gaelic Grounds. Jason Gillane gave Patrickswell a dream start when he scored a rampaging goal after just fifty seconds. The early shock seemed to rattle Garryspillane, but they recovered with two consecutive points to narrow the deficit. Josh Considine’s point put the ‘Well ahead by 1-1 to 0-2, but the Bouncers drew level with another pair of points. After fifteen minutes of play, the scoreboard was tied at 1-1 to 0-4. Calvin Carroll and Adam Carrig added fresh points to give Patrickswell another two-point lead; however the game turned sharply when Garryspillane struck a goal and two points to hit the front after 25 minutes. The ‘Well were now trailing by 1-6 to 1-3. The last few minutes of the first half were closely fought as Calvin Carroll’s point was immediately cancelled out. When the referee blew his whistle for half-time, we were still in contention at 1-7 to 1-4 behind.

The opening score of the second half was a point from Cormac Kerins. As the ‘Well tried to overhaul the margin, Garryspillane shut the door with two consecutive points. The scoreline was 1-9 to 1-5 before Calvin Carroll produced two points to trim the arrears to 1-9 to 1-7. The spectators were on the edge of their seats as every ball became fiercely contested. Unfortunately for John O’Donnell’s boys, Garryspillane produced three straight points to build a robust five-point lead at 1-12 to 1-7. The clock was running down at this stage. Despite two more points from Calvin Carroll, the Bouncers responded in kind. The full sixty minutes had been played and Garryspillane led by 1-14 to 1-9. The linesman indicated three minutes of injury time and the ‘Well dropped in short balls to force a goal. Our opponents held firm and the sole reward was a point from Jason Gillane. At the final whistle, Garryspillane were the 1-14 to 1-10 victors. Hard luck to the players and management for coming so close during an excellent season.

HURLER OF THE YEAR: Congratulations to Cian Lynch, who was awarded GAA Hurler of the Year at the Convention Centre in Dublin. The award was richly deserved for his marvellous contribution to Limerick’s All-Ireland campaign. In addition, Cian scooped an All Star place.

LEONARD ENRIGHT R.I.P.: The club were saddened to learn of the death of Patrickswell and Limerick hurler Leonard Enright. Leonard was a multiple All Star winner and got inducted to the GAA Hall of Fame in 2018. He was also a well-respected Councillor. Our sympathies to his family. May he rest in peace.

PARISH LEAGUE: The Parish League brought down the curtain on another great season for the younger players.

The day started with a Fundamental Frame Challenge Demonstration with Willie Walsh for U-14 and U-12 boys and girls. The frame places sliotars at various heights for players to strike.

Afterwards, a lone piper led our U-14 Camogie Champions and all the children taking part in the Parish League. It was a great morning of hurling for the children as they had the chance to showcase their talents to parents. The day ended with a raffle and a presentation to all children. The winning team were the Cheetahs, captained by Liam McGrath and Caoimhe Hennessy.

Many thanks to the family of Jacob Fitzgerald for donating the equipment and raffle prizes. Once again, we're grateful to O'Brien's Pharmacy for their continued support. We are looking forward to seeing the young players back in the spring.

MINOR HURLERS: The Minor Hurling Championship final against Garryspillane has been scheduled for Wednesday October 31 at 7.30pm in the Gaelic Grounds.

 

18th October 2018

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell suffered a cruel late defeat to Doon in the Senior Championship semi-final at the Gaelic Grounds. Calvin Carroll and Cian Lynch scored early points as the 'Well made a positive start. However, Doon replied with a close-range goal to stem the tide. Diarmaid Byrnes and Aaron Gillane added their names to the scoresheet to put Patrickswell ahead by 0-4 to 1-0 after ten minutes. The middle of the first half was dominated by Gary Kirby's men with three unanswered points. With a quarter of the match played, Patrickswell led by 0-7 to 1-1. Young Calvin Carroll was in sparkling form and he was rewarded with two excellent long-range points. The game was keenly contested and Doon always stayed in contention. At the twenty minute marker, the 'Well led by 0-10 to 1-5. Over the next few minutes, Aaron Gillane and Calvin Carroll fired over points to maintain Patrickswell's lead. Unfortunately Doon dominated the last five minutes and they plundered a goal and four points without reply. The complexion of the match had changed significantly as the East Men now held a 2-10 to 0-12 lead. Aaron Gillane snatched the final point of the first half to keep the teams one goal apart.

The second half began with Patrickswell being kept at arm's length by Doon. Four points from Calvin Carroll, Diarmaid Byrnes, Tom O'Brien and Aaron Gillane were cancelled out by Doon to keep their three-point advantage at 2-14 to 0-17. There was another exchange of two points apiece as Patrickswell entered the last five minutes at one goal behind. The response was dramatic. Our All-Ireland trio of Aaron Gillane, Cian Lynch and Diarmaid Byrnes stunned Doon with three late points to equalise at 0-22 to 2-16. The referee indicated three minutes of stoppage time and every breaking ball was critical. The match was destined for a grandstand finale. Doon made the decisive breakthrough by scoring a point with fifty seconds left. The 'Well could not muster an equaliser and Doon scraped through by a solitary point on a scoreline of 0-22 to 2-17. Hard luck to the players and management.

PARISH LEAGUE: The traditional end-of-season Parish League takes place on Sunday October 21 at 11.30am. It's a great chance for our young players to showcase their talents.

We have been very fortunate that the Fitzgerald family have kindly picked our club to donate prizes and help get new equipment for the coming year for our underage teams. It is in memory of their son and brother, Jacob, who would have turned 18 this year. We are very grateful to them to have thought of us.

We are asking you all to please support this as it is the last event of the year. The tickets will be available to buy in the next few days and right up to the Parish League. They are available from Tony O'Briens Pharmacy, McDermotts Gala and Klassy Cuts for €5. The prizes are a 32" Smart TV, a 7" tablet and a €100 voucher for Patrickswell Club Gear.

 

11th October 2018

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell overcame South Liberties in the County Championship quarter-final at the Gaelic Grounds. The opening quarter was keenly contested as Patrickswell opened a narrow 0-6 to 0-5 lead. In the latter stages of the opening half, the 'Well's class began to show as we pulled away by 1-13 to 0-9 at the interval.

The second half commenced with a purple patch from Gary Kirby's men. Seven unanswered points were added to the scoreboard within fifteen minutes. Patrickswell were now 14 points ahead at 1-20 to 0-9. South Liberties edged back into the contest, but the final result was 1-26 to 1-13. The semi-final against Doon is next Sunday October 14 at 2pm.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: The Junior A hurlers were eliminated from the County Championship after suffering their first defeat of the season. The opposition was a strong Killeedy team that were a dominant force. Patrickswell trailed by ten points at half-time with the scoreline at 1-12 to 0-5. The second half was extremely close, but the 'Well could not reduce the margin. The final result was 1-18 to 0-11. It has been a great season that yielded three trophies. Hard luck to the players and management.

PARISH LEAGUE: The traditional finale to the boys' and girls' season has been scheduled for Sunday October 21 at 11.30am. It gives the young players a chance to showcase their skills.

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell face South Liberties in the County Championship quarter-final on Sunday October 7 at 3.45pm in the Gaelic Grounds. Please support the players.

MINOR HURLERS: Our young hurlers produced a remarkable comeback to beat Na Piarsaigh in the Premier Minor Championship semi-final in Rathkeale. The first half began in a very competitive manner. Josh Considine, Calvin Carroll, John Kirby and Patrick Kirby scored Patrickswell’s early points. The teams were level at 0-4 apiece after fifteen minutes. Fresh points from Jason Gillane and Calvin Carroll established a narrow 0-6 to 0-4 advantage, but the ‘Well were pinned back by one goal and a point from the Caherdavin boys. Our players responded strongly with a barrage of three points before the interval and reached the dressing room at 0-9 to 1-5 ahead.

The second half began in worrying fashion for Patrickswell. Na Piarsaigh went on the attack and exploited their possession. By the midpoint of the second half, our opponents had scored seven points in contrast to Patrickswell’s two points. The Light Blues held a commanding 1-12 to 0-11 lead as the match entered its final quarter. Thankfully there was a response from John O’Donnell’s charges as Calvin Carroll (0-2) and Jason Gillane slashed the deficit to a solitary point at 1-12 to 0-14. When Na Piarsaigh increased their lead to two points, it appeared that Patrickswell would struggle to catch them. Remarkably, the game was blown wide open when Jason Gillane equalised with two points and Josh Considine shocked Na Piarsaigh with a low drive into the net. The ‘Well were now leading by 1-16 to 1-13 as the clock ran down to five minutes. Na Piarsaigh pushed forward and scored another point; however their hopes were dashed by late points from Clive Kirby and Cormac Kerins. Patrickswell claimed a famous 1-18 to 1-14 victory and set up a Championship Final against Garryspillane. Well done to the players and management.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: Patrickswell meet Killeedy in the County Championship semi-final in Ballyagran on Saturday October 6 at 2.15pm.

 

27th September 2018

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell suffered a disappointing defeat to Na Piarsaigh in the final group match of the County Championship. The Caherdavin team made a lightning start and opened a 1-2 to 0-0 lead after just three minutes. Eventually Patrickswell crept into the match and began to take their points. After fifteen minutes, the scoreboard displayed a deficit of 1-6 to 0-4. Unfortunately, there was no reduction in Na Piarsaigh's pressure. Six consecutive points established an eleven-point deficit of 1-12 to 0-4 after 25 minutes. Diarmaid Byrnes and Cian Lynch managed to contribute points before half-time. The margin was trimmed to 1-12 to 0-6 at the interval. Patrickswell faced an uphill battle to salvage the match.

The second half began in low scoring fashion. Aaron Gillane struck the first point after seven minutes of action, but Na Piarsaigh replied quickly. Peter Harty and Cian Lynch cut the lead to seven points at 1-13 to 0-9, but this was the closest that Patrickswell would come. The Light Blues produced a devastating spell of six unanswered points to seal the match. There were five minutes on the stadium clock and the 'Well trailed by 1-20 to 0-10. Aaron Gillane fired a superb goal from a free and the final score was a 1-21 to 1-11 defeat. Gary Kirby's men must turn their attention to a quarter-final against South Liberties in early October.

MINOR HURLERS: Patrickswell face Na Piarsaigh in the County Championship semi-final on Tuesday September 25 at 6.45pm in Rathkeale.

13th September 2018

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell were defeated by Kilmallock in the fourth group match of the County Championship. The Balbec asserted their dominance in the opening ten minutes as they raced into a 0-6 to 0-0 lead. The 'Well crept back into the contest when Cian Lynch struck our first point and Aaron Gillane followed up with another point. Within a few minutes, Aaron Gillane hit the back of the net and reduced the deficit to a single point at 0-6 to 1-2. Kilmallock increased their tempo and claimed an unanswered goal and two points to cement a 1-8 to 1-2 advantage after twenty minutes. The closing stages of the first half were shaded by the 'Well and the arrears were reduced to 1-10 to 1-6 before the interval.

Patrickswell needed a strong beginning to the second half; however Kilmallock fired over three consecutive points to generate a seven-point lead at 1-13 to 1-6. The teams traded four points apiece as Gary Kirby's men battled to close the gap. At the midpoint of the second half, Kilmallock were 1-16 to 1-10 ahead. Patrickswell needed to find a higher gear, but our opponents killed off the challenge with three straight points to establish an unassailable 1-19 to 1-10 lead with five minutes left. The last few minutes were evenly balanced and the match ended with a 1-22 to 1-12 defeat. The weekend's other results mean that Patrickswell have reached the quarter-final. The last group stage match is against Na Piarsaigh in a fortnight.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: The Junior A Hurlers are scheduled to play a County Championship quarter-final on Sunday September 16.

 

6th September 2018

SENIOR HURLERS: Our Senior hurlers returned to Championship action against Ballybrown after a lengthy three-month break. The parish neighbours were inseparable in the opening ten minutes as both sides amassed four points apiece. The Patrickswell scorers were Aaron Gillane, Cian Lynch, Josh Considine and Calvin Carroll. Peter Harty’s goal was a significant moment in the match and helped the ‘Well carve out a 1-6 to 0-4 lead after twenty minutes. However, Ballybrown mustered a goal and another point to slash the deficit to 1-6 to 1-5. Patrickswell increased their tempo and finished the first half with two points from Aaron Gillane and a point from Kevin O’Brien. The half-time score was 1-9 to 1-6 in favour of Gary Kirby’s men.

The second half began with a period of relative dominance from the ‘Well. The All-Ireland attacking duo of Aaron Gillane and Cian Lynch produced two points each as Patrickswell built a 1-15 to 1-9 buffer on forty minutes. Ballybrown tried their hardest to edge closer, yet Patrickswell were able to match their scoring rate. Aaron Gillane (0-2) and Diarmaid Byrnes (0-1) established a 1-19 to 1-12 lead with five minutes remaining. Our neighbours reduced the arrears to five points when they scored a goal in the last minute of normal time. Their search for a late comeback was in vain as Patrickswell won by 1-20 to 2-12. Congratulations to the players and management. It’s a hectic month with two more group matches against Kilmallock and Na Piarsaigh.

MINOR HURLERS: Our Minor hurlers will meet Garryspillane in a playoff to decide first and second place in the group. The match takes place in Caherconlish on Tuesday September 4 at 6.30pm.

 

30th August 2018

LIAM MCCARTHY CUP HOMECOMING: There was a large crowd in attendance as Patrickswell welcomed the Liam McCarthy Cup, Cian, Diarmaid, Aaron and a selection of Limerick's players. Sinead O'Brien performed songs on the night, while Matt O'Callaghan was the popular MC and DJ Mickey Mac kept the crowd entertained. Afterwards, the players signed autographs and posed for photographs with hundreds of children and adults. Pictures with the Liam McCarthy Cup also generated huge interest.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: The Junior A hurlers claimed their third trophy of the season as they edged past Ballybrown in the City Championship Final. Patrickswell made a positive start and scored the opening two points from Calvin and Andrew Carroll. Ballybrown's first point was then countered by a Brian Fitzgerald goal. The score after ten minutes was 1-2 to 0-1. Ballybrown increased their tempo and were rewarded with three unanswered points. The 'Well stopped the revival through points from Calvin Carroll (0-2) and Paul O'Brien. Approaching half-time, Nigel Carey's men were 1-5 to 0-4 ahead. However, our neighbours fought back and trimmed the lead to 1-5 to 0-7. Calvin Carroll scored the final point of the first half to establish a two-point margin of 1-6 to 0-7.

The second half began with an exchange of two points apiece. Tom Nolan and Calvin Carroll were the Patrickswell scorers as the scoreline changed to 1-8 to 0-9. Ballybrown notched another point to move within a single score again. The 'Well were in no mood to surrender the lead and shocked Ballybrown with a salvo of three goals and a point within ten minutes. Paul O'Brien started the onslaught with a fine goal, Andrew Carroll struck a point and Calvin Carroll starred with two quick-fire goals. The advantage after fifty minutes was a commanding ten points at 4-9 to 0-11. To their immense credit, Ballybrown refused to lie down. The Clarina men plundered 2-1 in just a few minutes to trim the deficit to four points at 4-10 to 2-12. The spectators were set for a grandstand finale in the last five minutes. Ballybrown's point moved them with striking distance, but Patrickswell responded immediately. Once again, Ballybrown raised the white flag to reach injury time at 4-11 to 2-14. Their search for an equalising goal was thwarted as Patrickswell held firm. Garry Murphy accepted the trophy on behalf of the team and thanked our opponents for accommodating the postponement.

Over the space of fifteen minutes, Patrickswell notched seven points from Peter Harty (0-2), Josh Considine, Calvin Carroll, Kevin O'Brien, Jason Gillane and Lar Considine. The scoreboard on 20 minutes displayed a 0-8 to 0-4 advantage to Gary Kirby's men. Ballybrown stemmed the tide with a fresh point, but Lar Considine, Jack Kelleher, Peter Harty and Seanie O'Brien extended the lead to 0-12 to 0-6 after 25 minutes. The Clarina men recovered with a trio of consecutive points just before the half-time whistle. Fortunately, Jack Kelleher popped up with a point to put Patrickswell 0-13 to 0-10 ahead at the interval.

12th July 2018

JUNIOR A HURLERS: It was a remarkable week for the Junior A Hurlers as they won the County League trophy and maintained their 100% record in the City Championship in dramatic fashion.

The first fixture of the week was a stunning comeback win against neighbours Ballybrown in the City Championship. Our parish rivals started at a high tempo and were rewarded with a 2-4 to 0-1 lead after just ten minutes. Patrickswell were unfamiliar with such large deficits and struggled to cope with the Clarina men. David Woulfe's two points managed to narrow the gap, but Ballybrown's third goal put them in the ascendancy. At half-time, Ballybrown held a twelve-point lead of 3-8 to 0-5. It was the biggest challenge faced by our Junior A hurlers this season.

The second half started with a Patrickswell blitz. Paul O'Brien and Jason Gillane began to exert their influence and Ballybrown were forced onto the back foot. The 'Well accumulated a large haul of 2-5 before Ballybrown managed to register another point. After 50 minutes, Ballybrown's lead had been slashed to two points at 3-9 to 2-10. The tide had swung in favour of Nigel Carey's men. Jason Gillane's decisive goal put the 'Well ahead for the very first time at 3-11 to 3-9. By the full-time whistle, three insurance points had been added to cement a fine 3-14 to 3-10 victory. Our defence had limited Ballybrown to just two points in the entire second half.

Two days later, the Junior A hurlers claimed the County League crown with an emphatic win against Adare. While Adare scored the first point of the match, Patrickswell responded with 1-5 without reply. The scores were shared between Paul O'Brien's goal and points from Andrew Carroll, Johnny McMahon, Jamie Dillon, Jason Gillane and David Woulfe. Adare managed to slow down the rate of scoring; however Patrickswell held a strong 1-10 to 0-4 lead at half-time.

The second half was again dominated by Patrickswell. Calvin Carroll scored a mesmerising solo goal and his team-mates chipped in seven more points. Adare produced only three points in the second half. Gary Murphy was presented with the County League trophy after a 2-17 to 0-7 triumph. Well done to the players and management. The next scheduled match is on Saturday 14 July against Monaleen in Rathbane at 7pm.

SENIOR HURLERS: On Thursday July 12, Patrickswell are scheduled to play Ballybrown in the City Championship Final in Mungret at 7pm.

5th July 2018

SENIOR HURLERS: In the City Championship semi-final replay against Monaleen, Patrickswell made no mistake with a crushing win of 7-17 to 1-7. The replay was in marked contrast to the highly competitive original draw.

The game was played in baking heat and it was the ‘Well that were in scorching form. Within the first five minutes, Darragh Ahern and Peter Harty scored goals to put Monaleen on the back foot. The intense pressure continued as Patrickswell notched 3-7 without reply in the first quarter of an hour. Lar Considine was in prolific form as he fired over four consecutive points. When Monaleen snatched a goal, Patrickswell simply replied with a fourth goal. The half-time scoreboard in Clarina reflected the one-way traffic at 4-11 to 1-4. There was little doubt of the outcome.

The management allowed no drop in standards in the second half as the ’Well continued the onslaught. Andrew Carroll scored a fifth goal, before Peter Harty added a sixth goal. There were also points from Seanie O’Brien, Darragh Ahern, Calvin Carroll and David Woulfe. The icing on the cake was a late seventh goal for Seanie O’Brien to cap a magnificent 7-17 to 1-7 win.

In the All County Hurling League match against Adare, the ’Well battled hard against their neighbours, but succumbed to a 3-16 to 2-16 defeat. Patrickswell have now played all their fixtures and sit joint top of the table; albeit other clubs have games in hand to reach the Top Two.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: The City Championship continues in Rathbane on Monday July 2 at 7.30pm against Ballybrown.

INTERCOUNTY HURLING: Best wishes to Limerick in their preliminary All Ireland Senior Championship quarter-final with Carlow.

 

28th June 2018

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell suffered defeat in the All County Hurling League against Doon. With a stiff breeze at their backs, the 'Well made a bright opening and raced into a 0-3 to 0-0 lead after five minutes. Doon scored their opening point to register on the scoreboard; however Aaron Gillane's goal built a 1-4 to 0-2 margin after ten minutes. The middle stages of the first half were controlled by Doon and they were rewarded with five points against the wind. With twenty minutes on the clock, Patrickswell held a narrow 1-5 to 0-7 advantage. Lar Considine sparked a revival as the 'Well fired off five additional points to reach the interval at 1-10 to 0-8 ahead.

The second half was characterised by Doon taking full benefit of the breeze. The East Men wreaked havoc with their long, high ball. In the space of five minutes, Patrickswell conceded a damaging 2-3 and trailed by 2-11 to 1-11. Darragh Ahern and Lar Considine ended the Doon surge and closed the deficit to a single point at 2-11 to 1-13. Once again, our opponents found the back of the net and scored another fresh point. The game had turned to Doon and they led by 3-12 to 1-13.

Calvin Carroll scored a goal to put the 'Well back into the reckoning. Unfortunately, Doon plundered a fourth goal to cement a 4-12 to 2-13 lead with ten minutes left. To their credit, the Patrickswell midfielders and forwards sparked a revival with six points in five minutes. The deficit was down to a single point at 4-14 to 2-19 with five minutes on the clock. As Gary Kirby's men pushed for an equaliser, Doon tacked on some insurance points to win a superb game by 4-17 to 2-20.

21st June 2018

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell remained top of the All County Hurling League after a three-goal win over Na Piarsaigh. The opening ten minutes were delicately balanced as both teams registered three points each. Tom O'Brien pushed the 'Well into the lead with a fine goal, but the Caherdavin side stayed in contention at 1-4 to 0-6 after fifteen minutes. The match swung decisively in Patrickswell's favour as our midfielders and forwards produced 1-5 without reply in a devastating ten-minute spell. At the interval, Gary Kirby's men were ahead by eight points at 2-11 to 0-9.

The second half produced an early fightback by Na Piarsaigh. At one stage, they produced seven consecutive points to slash their deficit to two points at 2-13 to 0-17. Patrickswell were forced to respond through successive points from Lar Considine, Mark Carmody and Peter Harty (0-2). Once again, the 'Well had opened a comfortable advantage at 2-17 to 0-17 after fifty minutes. David Woulfe made a telling impact when his late goal clinched the game. The final result was 3-20 to 0-20. The next scheduled All County Hurling League match is Tuesday June 19 at 7.30pm in Patrickswell versus Doon.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: Patrickswell maintained their 100% record in the City Championship after a tough win over Na Piarsaigh. While Na Piarsaigh struck the opening point of the match, Patrickswell took charge and roared into a 0-7 to 0-1 lead within ten minutes. Our opponents managed to halt the onslaught with a couple of points; however the 'Well notched another five straight points to lead by 0-12 to 0-5 by half-time.

Calvin Carroll's early second half goal opened up a ten point lead at 1-12 to 0-5 and the result seemed beyond doubt. Na Piarsaigh cancelled out the goal by notching three consecutive points, but Patrickswell tacked on two more points. After 45 minutes, the 'Well led handsomely by 1-14 to 0-8. The Light Blues stepped up the pressure and were rewarded with two goals and two points in a ten-minute burst. Patrickswell were under pressure in the closing few minutes. Our lead had been eroded to three points at 1-16 to 2-10. The win appeared to be finally cemented with two insurance points; however Na Piarsaigh struck a third goal to set up a grandstand finale at 1-18 (21) to 3-10 (19). In the dying seconds, our opponents were pressing for the equalising goal. The 'Well broke forward and Jason Gillane ended their stubborn resistance with the last point of the match. The final result was a 1-19 to 3-10 triumph.

INTERCOUNTY HURLERS: Hard luck to the Limerick hurlers, who lost to a strong Clare team in the Munster Championship. Best of luck to the team in the preliminary quarter-final. Congratulations to the Minor hurlers who beat Clare.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: It was a busy week for the Junior A hurlers as they battled in two competitions. In the County League semi-final, Patrickswell were pitted against a strong Doon team. It was a very tough and physical match, but Nigel Carey's men prevailed by 2-16 to 2-11. The victory sets up a mouth-watering League final between the winners of Adare and Kilmallock. After 48 hours' recuperation, Patrickswell faced Old Christians in the City Championship. Paul O'Brien's early goal and Owen McNamara's point gave the 'Well a perfect start at 1-1 to 0-0. Old Christians eventually settled and they equalised with a flurry of four unanswered points. After fifteen minutes of play, Patrickswell held a narrow 1-4 to 0-5 advantage when Jason Gillane (0-2) and Owen McNamara contributed fresh points. Our opponents surged forward again and rattled over four consecutive points to lead by 0-9 to 1-4. David Woulfe's point just before the half-time whistle meant that Patrickswell trailed by one point at 0-9 to 1-5.

The second half opened with high intensity from both teams. After forty minutes, the scoreboard displayed level scores at 1-8 to 0-11. Thankfully, Patrickswell seemed to have superior fitness and began to dominate the possession and chances. Andrew Carroll was in sparkling form and orchestrated a ten-minute spell where the 'Well outscored Old Christians by seven points to one point. There were five minutes left and Patrickswell were now buoyant at 1-15 to 0-12. Paul O'Brien managed to close the match with a second goal and Jason Gillane's insurance point delivered a superb 2-16 to 0-12 win. The record stands at 100% with three wins secured. The next scheduled match is on Friday June 15 at 7.30pm against Na Piarsaigh in Claughaun.

INTERCOUNTY HURLING: Congratulations to Limerick for producing a stunning performance to beat Waterford in the Munster Championship. The club is very proud of Cian, Diarmaid and Aaron. Best wishes for the trip to Clare. We're confident that Limerick can cement their place in the Munster final.

 

7th June 2018

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell and Monaleen played out an exciting draw in the City Championship semi-final. The 'Well made a bright start and scored the opening two points of the match. However Monaleen responded quickly to equalise. With just five minutes on the clock, Patrickswell notched a close-range goal. The advantage was short-lived as Monaleen raised the green flag almost immediately to restore parity at 1-2 to 1-2. The middle portion of the first half was edged by Monaleen as our opponents established a 1-7 to 1-4 lead. Thankfully, Patrickswell stemmed the tide and notched four consecutive points to overturn the deficit at 1-8 to 1-7. The latter stages of the first half produced another purple patch from Monaleen as they reached the interval at 1-13 to 1-9 ahead.

The second half started with continued pressure from Monaleen. They were able to outpoint Gary Kirby's men and built a 1-17 to 1-11 buffer with twenty minutes left. Patrickswell kept their composure and roared back into the game when Padraig Maher struck our second goal to trim the arrears at 1-17 to 2-11. The sides traded three additional points and Monaleen were battling hard to retain a 1-20 to 2-14 margin with five minutes left. The 'Well pressed forward to save the match and finally drew level at 3-14 to 1-20 when Peter Harty claimed a decisive third goal. Thomas O'Brien produced a late point to put Patrickswell into the lead; however Monaleen scored the final point to earn a replay. The final score was 3-15 to 1-21 and a fair reflection on both teams.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: Patrickswell maintained their 100% record in the City Championship with a convincing win over Mungret. The opening ten minutes were finely balanced as the teams were locked at 0-3 apiece. As the first half ticked by, Patrickswell began to dominate possession and scored with increasing frequency. Jason Gillane showed great accuracy from distance and led Patrickswell to a 0-9 to 0-6 advantage with five minutes remaining in the half. The margin was extended to six points by half-time as Calvin Carroll, Jason Gillane and Paul O'Brien ensured a 0-12 to 0-6 lead.

The second half display from Patrickswell showed a high level of fitness and skill. Six consecutive points from Owen McNamara (0-2), Jason Gillane (0-2) and Paul O'Brien (0-2) pushed the 'Well into an unassailable 0-18 to 0-8 advantage. There was no reduction in commitment levels as Jason Gillane added a sequence of points and Paul O'Brien delivered a well-deserved goal. The scoreline was 1-24 to 0-11 when Mungret snatched a consolation goal at the death. The final result was a comprehensive 1-26 to 1-12 victory for Nigel Carey's team.

INTERCOUNTY HURLERS: Congratulations to Limerick's senior hurlers for salvaging a superb draw against Cork in the Munster Championship. The club are delighted to have Diarmaid, Cian and Aaron as club representatives on the County team. Well done to Patrick Kirby and Limerick's Minor hurlers after their superb win against Cork.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: The Junior A hurlers collected their first piece of silverware by winning the City League final against Crecora. The 'Well were on the back foot after fifteen minutes as Crecora built a 0-6 to 0-4 advantage. From that point onwards, Patrickswell began to gain the upper hand. Jason Gillane struck a trio of points to close the deficit to 0-8 versus 0-7. In the last minute of the first half, Jamie Dillon's speculative long-range shot was fumbled by the goalkeeper and Patrickswell led by 1-7 to 0-8 at the interval.

The second half was completely dominated by Patrickswell. Within ten minutes of the restart, there was a flurry of points from Jason Gillane, Owen McNamara and Cillian O'Reilly. The margin grew to six points at 1-13 to 0-10 and the 'Well never looked back. In the closing stages, there was great shooting accuracy as Nigel Carey's team racked up another eight points. The final result was 1-21 to 0-12. Gary Murphy accepted the City League trophy that was retained from last year.

This match also counted as the opening fixture of the City Championship. The next fixture is scheduled for Friday June 1 at 7pm against Mungret in Crecora.

Adare stemmed the tide for a while; however Seanie O'Brien soon claimed his second goal. Entering the last quarter of the match, the 'Well led by 3-17 to 0-10. There was a minor sense of alarm when Adare struck three goals in five minutes to slash the deficit to eight points at 3-18 to 3-10.

For ten minutes, Adare were dominant and built a 1-4 to 0-5 buffer. Patrickswell knew that they needed to win the match and closed out the half with two straight points. At half-time, the teams were inseparable at 0-7 to 1-4.

The second half was going to plan as the 'Well scored three points to lead by 0-10 to 1-5. Adare rattled Patrickswell with another goal and two points to eke out a 2-7 to 0-10 margin. There was a tense finale when two Patrickswell points reduced the deficit to the bare minimum at 0-12 to 2-7. The momentum seemed to swing towards Damien Gillane's team. With the minutes ebbing away, it was Adare who closed the door with two clinching points. The final score was a 0-12 to 2-9 disappointment.

After fifteen minutes, Kilmallock were leading by 1-5 to 0-3. They managed to maintain a high tempo and pushed Patrickswell backwards. Unfortunately, the 'Well were unable to stem the tide and they trailed by 3-11 to 0-4 at the break. The second half was a closer contest as Patrickswell stood firm and played some fine hurling. Taken in isolation, the second half was all square. However, the final result was 3-17 to 0-7 for Kilmallock.

The final pool match is scheduled against Adare on Sunday March 11 in Rathkeale.

The initial exchanges of the second half were finely balanced as both teams tacked on two points apiece.
