UNDER 19 HURLERS: The U-19 hurlers suffered defeat in their first Premier Hurling Championship match at Mungret. The contest was finely balanced in the opening five minutes as both teams recorded three points apiece. Patrickswell’s scores were all Eoin Harmon frees. Unfortunately the home side were too strong and they amassed one goal and nine points without reply in twenty minutes. Eoin Harmon’s fourth free arrived in the closing minute of the half and Patrickswell trailed by 1-12 to 0-4 at the break.

The second half began with Mungret’s second goal, but Patrickswell stemmed the tide. Eoin Harmon struck a fifth free and John Kirby recorded a point to reduce the arrears to 2-12 to 0-6 in the 40th minute. The next ten minutes were level pegging as both teams notched another three points each. Eoin Harmon chipped in with two more frees and John Kirby scored another. There were ten minutes left and the Reds led by 2-15 to 0-9. Four points in six minutes put Mungret sixteen points clear, before the match concluded with two points each (John Kirby and Paddy Gardiner). The final result was 2-21 to 0-11.

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell lost an epic City League semi-final against hosts Na Piarsaigh on penalties. The Caherdavin men raced into an early lead with three straight points before Calvin Carroll registered Patrickswell’s first point. Na Piarsaigh extended their lead to 0-8 to 0-3 after fifteen minutes, but Kevin O’Brien and Jonathan McMahon turned the tide with a pair of goals. Patrickswell were suddenly ahead by 2-5 to 0-9 in the 23rd minute. Na Piarsaigh had the better of the closing minutes of the first half and they reached half-time at just 0-13 to 2-6 ahead.

The first fifteen minutes of the second half saw both clubs hit four points apiece and Na Piarsaigh holding onto a narrow 0-17 to 2-10 lead. In a devastating five-minute spell, Patrickswell raced ahead with five points courtesy of Jason Gillane 0-2, John Kirby 0-2 and Calvin Carroll. There were ten minutes left and Patrickswell were 2-15 to 0-17 ahead. Unfortunately Na Piarsaigh showed their mettle and forced extra time with a dogged finish to the game. Their six points overshadowed Patrickswell’s two points and the sides were inseparable at 2-17 to 0-23.

Na Piarsaigh edged the first period of extra time. Their goal with two points exceeded Patrickswell’s haul of four points. At half-time in extra time, Na Piarsaigh led narrowly by 1-25 to 2-21. In the second period, both sides traded two points before Calvin Carroll nailed a last minute free to seal a 2-24 to 1-27 draw.

SENIOR HURLERS: The Senior Hurlers played out an entertaining draw away to Monaleen in the final group match of the City League. After ten minutes, the teams were level at 0-3 apiece (Calvin Carroll 0-2 and John Kirby). When the hosts crept ahead with a fourth point, Jason Gillane’s 140 yard puckout eluded the Monaleen goalkeeper for a goal. Patrickswell were further ahead at 1-7 to 0-7 by the 20th minute due to points from Jack Kelleher, Thomas Nolan and Calvin Carroll 0-2. The closing stages of the first half witnessed a further exchange of four points each, with Calvin Carroll notching three scores and John Kirby contributing another. The half-time score was 1-11 to 0-11.

Monaleen were dominant in the first 15 minutes of the second half, outscoring Patrickswell by eight points to one. John O’Meara’s men found themselves 0-19 to 1-12 behind and needed to respond. There was a flurry of points in a five-minute spell as Patrickswell narrowed the gap slightly to 0-22 to 1-16 (John Kirby, Darragh Ahern and Calvin Carroll 0-2). Remarkably, the visitors equalised within two minutes due to a brace from the ever-accurate Calvin Carroll and another point from Jack Kelleher. The scoreline in the 55th minute was 1-19 to 0-22. The teams traded points, before John Kirby appeared to put Patrickswell in the box seat with a goal to make it 2-20 to 0-23. The lead was short-lived as Monaleen produced a goal within thirty seconds and followed up with two points. On the cusp of normal time, the ‘Well trailed by 1-25 to 2-20. The big decision was about aiming for goal or hoping for adequate time for points. Calvin Carroll scored a point in the 62nd minute and Mark Carmody snatched the 2-22 to 1-25 draw in the 64th minute. Patrickswell face Na Piarsaigh in the City semi-final on Thursday June 2 at 7.00pm in Caherdavin.

JUNIOR B HURLERS: The Junior B hurlers secured an excellent away win in Doon in the City East League.

SENIOR HURLERS: The Senior hurlers were narrowly beaten at home by neighbours Ballybrown in the City Senior Hurling League. The visitors went two points ahead before Cian Gorman registered Patrickswell’s opening point of the match. Ballybrown led by 0-5 to 0-2 after fifteen minutes, but the following eight minutes were dominated by the ‘Well as Cian Enright (0-2), John Flynn and Seanie O’Brien equalised at 0-6 apiece by the 23rd minute. Ballybrown increased their tempo and they were rewarded by six additional points before the interval. At half-time, the Clarina men were 0-12 to 0-7 ahead.

At the start of the second half, Ballybrown outscored the ‘Well by six points to two points before the 40th minute. Patrickswell had an uphill task at 0-18 to 0-9 in arrears. Remarkably, Thomas O’Brien led a dramatic recovery that yielded eight points in eight minutes (Thomas O’Brien 0-4, Kevin O’Brien, John Flynn, Thomas Nolan and Cian Enright). The home team were merely two points adrift at 0-19 to 0-17 in the 50th minute. Despite the momentum behind them, Patrickswell succumbed to a Ballybrown goal and point to trail by six points at 1-20 to 1-17. The game was thrown back into the melting pot when Seanie O’Brien’s goal was sandwiched by two more Patrickswell points. On the cusp of injury time, John O’Meara’s men were only one point behind at 1-20 to 1-19. The grandstand finale did not materialise and Ballybrown clinically finished the match with four unanswered points to claim a 1-24 to 1-19 away win.

INTERMEDIATE HURLERS: Patrickswell suffered defeat at home to Ballybrown, despite a whirlwind start. The ‘Well raced into a 2-3 to 0-1 lead after just twelve minutes when David Woulfe and Gavin Carey struck the net. Ballybrown dominated the next seven minutes with a haul of one goal and three points without response.  Patrickswell extended their advantage to three points with Jonathan McMahon’s point, but the scoreline was damaged by Ballybrown’s second and third goals before the break. The half-time score was 3-5 to 2-5 in Ballybrown’s favour.

Patrickswell made a good start to the second half by scoring two points in a minute to slash the deficit to a single point. However, the door was slammed in their face when Ballybrown claimed a fourth goal and a fresh point in sixty seconds. There were 35 minutes elapsed and the visitors were five points ahead at 4-6 to 2-7. The teams exchanged two points apiece, before Ballybrown plundered another goal and two points in a three-minute flurry to effectively decide the contest. Chasing a ten-point gap at 5-10 to 2-9, Patrickswell continued to search for a way back.  Five straight points from the ‘Well trimmed the deficit to five points, but Ballybrown crushed the recovery with two late goals and a point to run out 7-11 to 2-14 winners.

INTER-COUNTY HURLERS: Congratulations to the Patrickswell contingent of Diarmaid Byrnes and Aaron Gillane for winning with Limerick against Tipperary in the third match of the Munster Championship. Well done to John and Patrick Kirby on their great success in winning the Munster U-20 Championship title.
