Well done to Joey Noonan who was a member of the South Tipperary Under 14 hurling panel that defeated North Tipperary in the Semi-final of the Peadar Cummins Under 14 Interdivisional Hurling Competition on Saturday last in Borrisoleigh. In the final, Joey came on at centre-field but Mid Tipperary proved too strong. Well done Joey.

We extend the sympathy of St. Patrick’s GAA Club to the White, Walsh and Hayden families on the death of Mrs. Brid Walsh R.I.P. Brid’s husband Michael Walsh was one of the mainstays of hurling in the Drangan area while her son in law Eddie Hayden was a member of the St. Patrick’s team that won our first Junior Hurling South Tipperary title in 1963.

In recent years, John Michael and the late Edmond were members of successful St. Patrick’s hurling teams. With Michael and John winning minor under 21 and junior titles. May Brid Walsh rest in peace.

Under 12’s

Details of the next championship round game not yet finalised.

Under 14’s

On Saturday 26th our U-14s took to the field in Anner Park to face Moycarkey in the County Semi-Final. On what was the warmest day of the year these two great sides served up a treat for all gathered. In a nail biting game that ebbed from end to end with Moycarkey leading by 3 points at the interval. Our girls raised their game and took the lead briefly in the second half but despite their tremendous effort they were unable to fend off a resolute Moycarkey side, who saw off our challenge by 3points. Best of luck to them in the final. Final scoreline: St. Patrick’s 2.5, Moycarkey 2.8. Scorers for St. Patrick’s were: C.Ryan, N.Keane & R O’Brien. Team - S.Morrissey, E.Ryan, V.Noonan, S O’Connor, J D Chaudhury, J Mahoney, E.Kenny, R O’Brien, C McMenamin, C.Horan, C.Ryan, D.Wall, A.Maher, N.Keane, C.Murphy, E.Wilson, N.Ryan, C.Griffen, R MacDonald.

Well done to all on a great season performance and to all who supported these girls on their journey. The club would like to thank Pat, John and Aliaster for all their work and efforts with the girls.
