Club Lotto Results
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

JUVENILE CLUB ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING: The Juvenile Club Annual General
Meeting for 2018 was opened by new Chairman John Murphy. Secretary Peter Maher

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 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

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
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
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
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
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.
