U-21 HURLERS: The U-21 hurlers continued their winning start to the Championship season by defeating Na Piarsaigh in Rhebogue. Patrickswell made an impressive start and led by 0-3 to 0-0 within five minutes. Na Piarsaigh managed to settle into the match and replied with two consecutive points. Shortly afterwards, Jason Gillane and Josh Considine gave the 'Well a 0-5 to 0-2 advantage; however the Caherdavin team responded with two fresh scores. After fifteen minutes, Patrickswell held a narrow 0-5 to 0-4 lead. Des Foley's men enjoyed a short purple patch and racked up three unanswered points to build a 0-8 to 0-4 margin. Na Piarsaigh were resilient and reduced the arrears with yet another two point burst. Thankfully, Cillian O'Reilly scored a late point to establish a 0-9 to 0-6 half-time buffer.

The second half was a tighter contest and points were harder to register. Na Piarsaigh notched the opening point, but Jason Gillane cancelled out that particular score. Na Piarsaigh chalked up another point before John Flynn replied in kind. Paudie Maher fired a vital point to provide some breathing space. As the match entered its final quarter, the 'Well led by 0-12 to 0-8. However, two Na Piarsaigh points slashed the margin to 0-12 to 0-10. The 'Well produced another point to cement a one-goal lead at 0-13 to 0-10 with two minutes remaining. Na Piarsaigh earned a long-distance free at the start of injury time. Instead of aiming for a goal, they settled for a point and hoped that the referee would grant additional time. The Patrickswell defence stood firm and we held out for a 0-13 to 0-11 victory.

The next Championship match is on Tuesday February 19 against Monaleen in Rhebogue at 7.30pm.

UNDER 21 HURLERS: Patrickswell made a winning start to the Premier Hurling Championship against Ahane. The opening stages were completely dominated by the 'Well as we established a 0-6 to 0-0 advantage after fifteen minutes. Darragh Ahern scored three of these points, while Jamie Dillon, Josh Considine and Jason Gillane contributed one point apiece. Ahane managed to stem the tide with their first point, but this was immediately cancelled out by a Patrickswell point. After twenty minutes, there was great uncertainty over whether an Ahane shot had crossed the line. While the players took their positions for a 65', the referee and umpires agreed that the sliotar was over the line and the green flag was raised. The scoreline was now 0-7 to 1-1 in favour of Patrickswell. The goal did not cause much concern as Jason Gillane fired in a goal, while Darragh Ahern, Adam Carrig and Eoin Carroll added fresh points. Des Foley's team were in firm control at 1-10 to 1-1, before Ahane notched two points before the interval. The half-time score was 1-10 to 1-3.

Our opponents were revitalised in the second half. Ahane scored three points without reply until Darragh Ahern responded with a point. Once again, Ahane came forward and claimed two consecutive points. The match had become competitive in the final quarter. With fifteen minutes remaining, Patrickswell led by 1-11 to 1-8. Thankfully, Darragh Ahern (0-2) and Jason Gillane created some breathing space when they extended the margin to six points at 1-14 to 1-8. In the final minutes, Ahane scored a second goal to slash the arrears to three points. There was no grandstand finale for Ahane as Patrickswell struck an insurance point to win by 1-15 (18) to 2-8 (14).

The next match is against Na Piarsaigh in Rhebogue on Tuesday February 12 at 7.30pm.

JUVENILE CLUB ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING: The Juvenile Club Annual General Meeting for 2018 was opened by new Chairman John Murphy. Secretary Peter Maher delivered his annual report to the audience. The year started with a Recruitment Event that was very well attended by young people and strongly supported by the senior players. Peter thanked everyone who assisted in the successful running of the event.

The next portion of the Secretary's Report was a review of each age group. The U-6s trained on Friday evenings and greatly enjoyed themselves. The U-8s learnt the fundamentals of hurling and attended numerous blitzes and challenge matches. The U-10s were extremely busy with blitzes and attended an intercounty event in May against Portroe, Cashel and Ballybrown. The Parish League acted as the traditional season closer, where the young boys and girls had the chance to showcase their talents. Many thanks to the Fitzgerald family for donating equipment to the club and O'Brien's Pharmacy for sponsoring the day.

The U-12s played in an eleven-a-side league and also trained with the U-14s. Their most memorable event was a blitz in Croke Park against Cork and Tipperary teams. The boys were given words of encouragement by Cian Lynch and Aaron Gillane. The U-14s had a long season that stretched from February to December. They contested Féile and the championship, learning much along the way. The U-16s reached a semi-final and played very well.

Senior Club Chairman John McDermott addressed the meeting. He was delighted that John Murphy had taken the role of Juvenile Club Chairman. A major objective of the club is to identify young players in the locality and get them hurling with the 'Well.

The following management teams were picked: U-6 Conor Murray and John Murphy, U-8 Dave Hennessy, Mark Griffin and Keith Mullane, U-10 Declan O'Grady, U-12 Mike Foley, Anthony Foley, John Ferguson, Peter Maher and Jim Butler, U-14 Pa Earls, Kevin O'Brien, Dessie Foley and Pakie Lynch, U-16s Ray Fitzgerald, Dave Punch, Dessie Foley, John O'Donnell and Richie Bennis.

3rd January 2019

CLUB ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING: The Club’s Annual General Meeting was held in the clubhouse with a healthy attendance present. Martin Ryan delivered his final Secretary’s Report in his usual comprehensive style. The Senior hurlers were pipped in the County Championship semi-final by Doon, but they did manage to secure the City Championship against Ballybrown. The Junior A hurlers collected three trophies this season, following their successes in the City League, County League and City Championship. Their only defeat of the season was the County Championship semi-final loss to Kileedy.

The U-21 hurlers bowed out in the group stages in the spring. Our Minor hurlers had a fantastic season and battled all the way to the County Final. Unfortunately, Garryspillane produced a strong performance to deny Patrickswell. The Secretary thanked managers and selectors for facilitating the matches throughout the year. He complimented every Patrickswell player that lined out for Limerick, especially the All-Ireland winning trio of Cian Lynch, Diarmaid Byrnes and Aaron Gillane. Gratitude was expressed to main sponsors, Duggan Systems and the Greyhound Night Fundraising Committee led by Michael Walsh.

Martin commended the Camogie Club, Juvenile Club and Patrickswell National School for being so helpful and obliging. He concluded his report by expressing thanks to our Club Lotto organisers - Seamus O’Riordan, Tommy Reidy and Bernard Hayes, our County Board delegate Oliver Mann, our Munster Council delegate Paul Foley and the outgoing Chairman, Kieran Carroll. Condolences were offered to the families of Leonard Enright, Nelius Hayes and everyone who suffered a bereavement in 2018.

Kieran Carroll then delivered his farewell address as Chairman. The opening part of the Chairman’s Address focused on the contribution of Leonard Enright to Patrickswell and Limerick. Leonard was a through-and-through Patrickswell man, who led by example in every aspect of his life. He was a gentleman and always performed his duty – whether it was on the sporting field or in the world of politics. Kieran also lamented the sad passing of our former Treasurer, Nelius Hayes.

The Chairman was delighted that Limerick ended a 45-year wait to win an All-Ireland Championship. He was proud that Patrickswell had three representatives and that Cian Lynch had won an All-Star and Hurler of the Year award. He acknowledged the sterling service of outgoing Secretary Martin Ryan and Treasurer Seamus O’Riordan. In the years gone by, Kieran’s father Jimmy Carroll had been Club Chairman. It was Kieran’s goal to contribute to Patrickswell GAA Club like his father had done. He thanked his predecessor, Paul Foley, for handing over the reins in such good shape. He also acknowledged the support of Willie Leahy as his proposer for the Chairmanship. Sean Lynch and Nigel Carey were also singled out for their contributions as Vice Chairmen during his tenure.

When Kieran accepted the role of Chairman, he had two objectives – to keep our finances in good shape and to preside over success on the playing fields. He recognised the groundwork laid by Ciaran Carey and the subsequent County title delivered by Gary Kirby in 2016. Gary was praised as an outstanding club man who ended a 13-year Daly Cup drought and later claimed a Fitzgibbon Cup for UL. The Minor Team management were commended for their progress in reaching a County Final. The age profile of the team would indicate that there are many great years ahead.

Kieran noted that Patrickswell’s success is built on support and togetherness, irrespective of who holds the key roles. He was delighted that so many villagers worked voluntarily and gave back to the club. He was grateful to the Camogie and Juvenile clubs for their hard work and years of support to him. David Bulfin and Patrickswell National School were also commended for the development of players and promotion of hurling.

From a financial perspective, Kieran thanked the Finance Committee, the Greyhound Night Fundraising Committee and the stalwarts who run the Club Lotto every week. He acknowledged that it was difficult to raise money annually to allow for club development. There was praise for Finbar O’Brien’s hard work on the recent grant application. Patrickswell GAA Club wants to improve its facilities for future generations. He noted the support given by Limerick GAA and Munster GAA to our grant applications to date.

The work of Muirne Bennis, Mike Shinnors and Mary Shinnors in Scor was called out. Duggan Systems were thanked for their long association as club sponsor. In closing, Kieran noted that our current values are handed down from the Founding Fathers of the 1940s. Leadership is a tricky business and he always acted in the best interest of Patrickswell GAA Club. His legacy was to leave things in a better place.

President PJ O’Grady lauded the Chairman’s Address as the best speech he had ever heard at a Patrickswell GAA Club AGM. PJ appreciated the calm and rational manner that Kieran conducted his business. While the ‘Well did not claim a Senior County Championship title this season, other clubs envy us. We now have seven All-Ireland winners and Cian Lynch delivered an All-Star and Hurler of the Year. PJ was humbled by the large attendance at Leonard Enright’s funeral and the respectful marshalling on the day. He also offered his deepest sympathies to the family of Nelius Hayes. He spoke fondly about Muirne’s work with Scor and finally congratulated Martin Ryan and Seamus O’Riordan for their long service to the club.

Oliver Mann was delighted with how Patrickswell GAA Club was being run. He paid tribute to the outgoing Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. Oliver highlighted that our club is well regarded around the county. He was thrilled by Limerick’s success in the All-Ireland Championship and lauded the book co-authored by Ciaran Crowe and Joe Lyons – “At Last”. In closing, Oliver praised the work of the National School and the Juvenile & Camogie clubs.

Monsignor Lane focused on the hard work of the Chairman, Officers and Committee. He was amazed at the time and effort invested in the running of our club. In the 21st century, it is incredible to witness the spirit of volunteerism. Monsignor saw the GAA Club as the vibrant heart of the community. It fostered a sense of belonging. Monsignor expressed his delight that Limerick won the Liam MacCarthy Cup and that Patrickswell produced three of its stars. In closing, he offered his condolences to the Enright family.

The following officers were elected for 2019: Chairman John McDermott, Secretary Aedin Foley, Treasurer Michael McDermott, Vice-Chairman Seamus O’Riordan, Assistant Secretaries Jim O’Herlihy and Bernard Hayes, PRO James McCarthy, Registrar Paddy Carrig, Culture & Language Officer Muirne Bennis and Health & Wellbeing Officer PJ O’Grady.
