25th May 2017

SENIOR HURLERS: Our Senior hurlers overcame a stringent test from Monaleen to win the City Championship. While Andrew Carroll struck the opening point of the match, it was Monaleen who surged into a 0-7 to 0-2 lead within fifteen minutes. Thankfully, Patrickswell were able to stem the tide and recovered with four points divided between Lar Considine and Jack Kelleher. The scoreboard displayed 0-8 to 0-6 for Monaleen when Kevin O'Brien embarked on a mazy run that ended with a superb solo goal. However, our opponents reached half-time with a 0-12 to 1-7 lead.

The second half produced a better display from the 'Well. Consecutive points from Lar Considine, Kevin O'Brien and Mark Carmody levelled the match at 1-11 to 0-14. The game swung decisively for Gary Kirby's men when Mark Carmody notched a second goal. Patrickswell were able to cement the advantage with points from Jack Kelleher (0-2) and Kevin O'Brien. The result seemed certain with Patrickswell holding a 2-14 to 0-15 cushion with five minutes left. Monaleen drove forward with determination, but they fell short with three points. At the final whistle, Jack Kelleher collected the City Championship after a 2-14 to 0-18 triumph.

On Tuesday May 23, Patrickswell visit Kilmallock in the All County Hurling League.

18th May 2017

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell faced a stiff challenge from Na Piarsaigh in the second instalment of the County Championship. The game was extremely competitive in the first half as both teams matched each other blow for blow. Patrickswell took an early 0-3 to 0-1 lead; however the Caherdavin men responded decisively with an unanswered goal and two points to lead by 1-3 to 0-3 after fifteen minutes.

Patrickswell clawed their way back into the match as Andrew Carroll's goal was sandwiched between three Aaron Gillane points. The first half closed with Na Piarsaigh equalising with two points before Aaron Gillane put the 'Well into an interval lead of 1-8 to 1-6.

In the second half, Gary Kirby's players started brightly. The margin was stretched to 1-10 to 1-7. Suddenly Na Piarsaigh burst into life and hit the front with four quick points at 1-11 to 1-10. At this point, the spectators were enthralled about how the match would end up. With fifteen minutes to go, there was deadlock at 1-12 apiece. Na Piarsaigh finished very strongly and stunned Patrickswell with a second goal to grab 2-13 to 1-13 lead. Any hopes of a comeback were stifled by a salvo of three points from the Light Blues as they established a six-point lead with five minutes to play. By the final whistle, the score stood at 3-18 to 1-15.

The City Championship final against Monaleen is scheduled for Saturday May 20 at 7pm in Claughaun.

 

11th May 2017

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell clawed out a late victory over Adare in the first match of the County Championship. The opening exchanges were relatively balanced as points from Aaron Gillane (0-2) and Seanie O'Brien kept the 'Well in touch at 0-4 to 0-3 behind after fifteen minutes.

Adare were able to maintain a slim lead throughout the first half, despite the best efforts of Barry Foley and Aaron Gillane, who notched a further two points apiece before the interval. The scoreboard displayed a narrow one-point advantage for Adare by 0-8 to 0-7 at half-time.

Our opponents started the second half very brightly and fired over two points to build a 0-10 to 0-7 advantage after 40 minutes. Patrickswell needed an immediate response and this was delivered with quickfire points from Aaron Gillane and Andrew Carroll. However, Adare managed to keep their noses in front at every turn. While Kevin O'Brien and Andrew Carroll scored points, Adare extended their lead to 0-13 against 0-11 with ten minutes left. The match was now a war of attrition and Patrickswell had the answer. Young John Flynn and Andrew Carroll plundered consecutive points to draw level at 0-13 apiece. Again, Adare appeared to slam the door shut with a fresh point. It seemed that the 'Well were not going to hit the front.

Thankfully, the forwards began to take charge and force Adare onto the back foot. Andrew Carroll equalised with five minutes remaining, before Aaron Gillane finally gave Patrickswell the lead at 0-15 to 0-14. The insurance point was scored by Andrew Carroll before the Patrickswell defence snuffed out Adare's late attacks. There was great relief at the final whistle as Patrickswell won by 0-16 to 0-14. The next test is on Saturday May 13 against Na Piarsaigh at the Gaelic Grounds.

27th April 2017

SENIOR HURLERS: The Senior Hurlers produced a stirring second half performance to beat Ahane in the All-County Hurling League. The opening half was extremely competitive, but Ahane managed to reach the interval at 0-10 to 0-9 ahead. However, Patrickswell were electric in the second half, with Kevin O’Brien notching two excellent goals. Meanwhile, our defence restricted the visitors to a meagre three points as the ‘Well won out by 2-22 to 0-13.

16th March 2017

UNDER 14 HURLING: Patrickswell travelled to Martinstown for their Féile match against Cois Laoi Gaels. The game was played in very breezy conditions, which made the match a traditional 'game of two halves". Patrickswell played into the stiff breeze, but managed to strike the first point. Cois Laoi Gaels began to take advantage of the elements and raced into a 1-2 to 0-1 lead. However the 'Well responded with three consecutive points and closed the gap to 1-2 to 0-4. Unfortunately the 'Well were hemmed in for the remainder of the first half as their opponents built a 3-7 to 0-5 interval gap.

The second half saw a spirited revival by Patrickswell as they played with the wind at their backs. There were two goals and two points to slash the deficit to 3-8 to 2-7 with five minutes left. Cois Laoi managed to weather the storm and held on to win by 3-9 to 2-7. Hard luck to the players and management.

CAMOGIE: Our newly formed Committee, under the leadership of the enthusiastic Louise O’Donnell, is looking forward to continued development of camogie within the area. We are very fortunate to have Aedin Foley take on the task of Secretary from Dave Hennessy, who did a tremendous job last year.

9th March 2017

UNDER 21 HURLING: The U-21 hurlers suffered late disappointment against Ahane in the Premier Championship. The game's first score was a point from Cian Lynch. Ahane replied with two points, before Patrickswell took charge again with a fine goal from Aaron Gillane. Two fresh points from Gillane put the 'Well in control at 1-3 to 0-3 after fifteen minutes. Ahane were resilient and drew level with three consecutive points. The remainder of the first half was keenly contested; however our opponents reached the interval at 0-9 to 1-5 ahead.

Patrickswell made a flying start to the second half and went 1-9 to 0-9 ahead with a flurry of four points. There was an exchange of points, before Ahane increased their tempo and plundered three unanswered points. With ten minutes left in the match, the scoreline was deadlocked at 1-10 to 0-13. The game appeared to swing decisively in Patrickswell's favour when Aaron Gillane struck two late points to create a 1-12 to 0-13 margin. There was late drama as Ahane broke through the Patrickswell defence to notch a devastating goal. Unfortunately, Ahane secured an insurance point and held out for a 1-14 to 1-12 win. Pa Dundon's men have to wait for the outcome of Adare versus Ahane to determine their progress.

CAMOGIE: Sunday's Junior Camogie League fixture with Monaleen was postponed as a mark of respect to the O'Neill family.

The Camogie Club will have a Church Gate collection on the weekend of March 11 and 12. Your support would be greatly appreciated.

2nd March 2017

UNDER 21 HURLING: The Under 21 hurlers produced a remarkable comeback to win their opening fixture of the County Premier Championship against Adare. Patrickswell were playing into a stiff breeze in the first half and were largely on the back foot. Despite taking a 0-2 to 0-1 lead after ten minutes, the ‘Well failed to score for the remainder of the half, while Adare plundered seven points without reply. At the interval, the scoreline was 0-8 to 0-2 in arrears.

At the start of the second half, the teams exchanged two points apiece to register a score of 0-10 to 0-4. The wind and rain had abated and this should have favoured Adare’s cause. However, Patrickswell took charge of the match and started to erode the deficit. Two consecutive points reduced the margin to 0-10 to 0-6. The pivotal moment was a 65’ from Aaron Gillane that wrongfooted the Adare goalkeeper and sneaked into the net. The momentum had now swung to Patrickswell as they closed the gap to the bare minimum at 0-10 to 1-6. The ‘Well were full of confidence and shattered their opponents with another salvo of three unanswered points. At the final whistle, Pa Dundon’s men had turned a likely defeat into a 1-9 to 0-10 triumph.

VICTORY DANCE: The club held its much-anticipated Victory Dance at the Woodlands Hotel on Saturday February 4. The large attendance was a tribute to the popularity and importance of Patrickswell GAA in its community. The event recognised the groundbreaking achievements of the 1965&1966 County Champions, the record-equalling 2016 County Champions and the superb Minor Camogie title winners of 2015.

The evening was expertly compered by Club President PJ O'Grady and we were honoured to welcome Patrick O'Donovan as Minister for Sport, Deputy Niall Collins TD and Oliver Mann as County Board Chairman.

It was a very nostalgic and emotional evening as the Men of 1965/1966 were awarded medals to acknowledge their legacy. Sadly, many of the players have now passed away. However, their family members were invited to receive medals and stand in their place. The 2016 Senior Hurling Team and 2015 Minor Camogie Team were thrilled to get recognition for their important victories and their new place in club history.

We also awarded Distinguished Service plaques to Patrick Kirby, Phil Bennis, Bernard Hayes and Mossie Carmody to commemorate their tireless years of service to the club. A special gratitude award was given to Duggan Systems Limited, our longstanding and generous sponsor. In conclusion, John McDermott was awarded Club Person of the Year 2016 in recognition of his trojan work with the Finance Committee and organising the acquisition of land for expansion.

Patrickswell GAA Club would like to thank all its members and supporters for backing this gala evening. It was a superb event and testament to the spirit of our village.
