JUNIOR A HURLERS: The Junior A hurlers won the County League after a tough encounter with Tournafulla. Our opponents made a rapid start that delivered two points in the opening minute. Kieran Long settled Patrickswell nerves when he raced through the Tournafulla defence to notch a goal. Two Eoin Harmon points ensured parity of 1-2 to 0-5 after ten minutes. Over the course of the subsequent ten minutes, the teams were inseparable. Three more points from Eoin Harmon maintained the stalemate at 1-5 to 0-8. The rate of scoring dipped near the end of the first half, but Cian Gorman’s brace ensured a level half-time score of 1-7 to 0-10.

Eoin Harmon created a two-point advantage at the start of the second half, but Tournafulla edged ahead by 0-13 to 1-9 by the 40th minute. When Cian Gorman struck two points and Eoin Harmon added another, Patrickswell had crept into a 1-12 to 0-14 lead with ten minutes to play. There was all to play for as the light faded. Tournafulla added two points for a 0-16 to 1-12 advantage with five minutes remaining. This was their final score as Eoin Harmon, Shane Hannon and Cian Gorman decided the fixture with a late flourish. Patrickswell won by 1-15 to 0-16 and Nigel Foley accepted the County League trophy as captain on behalf of the club.
