SENIOR HURLERS: The County Championship group stage concludes with a match against Kildimo-Pallaskenry in Kilmallock on Saturday September 23 at 5.00pm. The outcome will decide our possible route towards a semi-final or quarter-final. Tickets must be purchased in advance on universe.com.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: The Junior A hurlers edged past Staker Wallace to secure a crucial victory in the County Championship. The opening ten minutes were shaded 0-4 to 0-3 by Patrickswell as Eoin Harmon struck three frees and Billy Earls scored a point from play. Staker Wallace’s first goal was quickly nullified when Eoin Harmon’s long range free took a deflection into the Staker Wallace net. Then Cian Gorman and Eoin Harmon’s points gave Patrickswell a 1-6 to 1-3 lead by the 20th minute. Our opponents scored two points before a long-range Eoin Harmon effort produced yet another own goal. The interval score was 2-6 to 1-5 to the ‘Well.

The teams cancelled each other out in the opening stages of the second half, with a trio of points apiece (Conor Robinson 0-2 and Darragh Ahern). Staker Wallace scored a second goal to slash the lead to a single point, but they failed to score for another ten minutes. In the meantime, Eoin Harmon added two frees. There were ten minutes left and Patrickswell led by 2-11 to 2-8. The rate of scoring was extremely low, but Josh Carey’s kicked goal in the 57th minute ended Staker Wallace resistance. Patrickswell were relieved to secure a 3-11 to 2-10 win. The final championship match is on Sunday September 24 at 5.00pm in Kilmallock. Tickets must be purchased in advance on universe.com.

UNDER 13 HURLERS: The U-13 hurlers suffered heartbreak with a narrow defeat in the Division 3 Championship Final against hot favourites Pallasgreen. Thomas Lynch and Evan Hayes scored points to cancel out the East boys. Jack Kelly’s persistence produced Patrickswell’s opening goal and established a 1-2 to 0-3 lead on 18 minutes. A further Harry O’Brien point made the half-time score 1-3 to 0-4.

Our second goal from Evan Hayes and two Thomas Lynch points had Patrickswell 2-5 to 0-6 ahead with seven minutes left. Unfortunately we could not muster another score and Pallasgreen plundered two devastating goals in three minutes. The final score was a cruel 2-6 to 2-5 defeat in a game that Patrickswell might have won. Hard luck to the players and management for a solid and brave performance.

CLUB LOTTO: The Club Lotto draw on Monday September 11 was not won. The numbers drawn were 8, 10, 14 and 27. The bonus number was 19. The €100 Lucky Dip was won by Mary & Emma O’Reilly and the €20 prizes were claimed by Louise Foley, Kathleen Enright, Josie Foley, Ted O’Leary and Tony McGregor. This week’s jackpot is €3,800.

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell suffered defeat in the fourth match of the County Championship against Kilmallock. We raced into a four-point lead by the fifth minute thanks to Cian Fitzgerald (0-2), Patrick Kirby and Aaron Gillane. However Kilmallock produced four consecutive points and had equalised by the 10th minute. The sides exchanged three points apiece (Aaron Gillane 0-2 and Jack Kelleher) before the game sprang to life. Kilmallock struck their opening goal, but Cian Lynch dispatched a rocket into the top corner within thirty seconds of that. Aaron Gillane had a great spell of two points and a clever re-directed goal to build a 2-9 to 1-7 lead. The Balbec surged back into the contest with four unanswered points, before Aaron Gillane and Evan Fitzgerald cemented a 2-11 to 1-11 interval lead.

Kilmallock started the second half with a trio of points, before John Flynn and John Kirby put Patrickswell 2-13 to 1-14 ahead. There were no Patrickswell scores for ten minutes, but Kilmallock notched four points to take a two-point lead in the 45th minute. Patrickswell were unfazed and enjoyed a spell of five points in six minutes (Aaron Gillane 0-3, Cian Lynch and Jordan Higgins). There were eight minutes of normal time and we held a slender 2-18 to 1-19 advantage. The game took a negative turn as Graeme Mulcahy plundered a goal and Kilmallock added two more points. While Aaron Gillane scored a point, Kilmallock cancelled it out immediately. There was high drama when Patrickswell were awarded a late penalty. The scoreboard displayed 2-22 to 2-19 as Diarmaid Byrnes faced the Kilmallock goalkeeper. There was almost total quiet when he struck his shot. Unfortunately for Patrickswell, the sliotar cleared the crossbar for a point. Moments later, the referee ended the match with Kilmallock emerging as 2-22 to 2-20 victors.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: Patrickswell lost their third Championship match against Ballybricken Bohermore at a hot and humid Fedamore. The first quarter was finely balanced when both teams accrued four points each (Cian Enright, Eoin Harmon and Darragh Ahern 0-2). Patrickswell surged clear with four rapid points from Peter Harty, Eoin Harmon 0-2 and Cian Gorman. Conor Robinson and Eoin Harmon had points matched by our opponents, before Ballybricken Bohermore added three more points. Patrickswell were 0-10 to 0-9 ahead when Billy Earls snatched our opening goal on the stroke of half-time.

A point from Conor Robinson and a second goal from Gavin Carey established a 2-11 to 0-10 lead in the 35th minute. Patrickswell were ahead by seven points, but failed to score for another 17 minutes. In that time, Ballybricken Bohermore piled on two goals and three points. There were ten minutes left and we now trailed by 2-13 to 2-11. Eoin Harmon, Andrew Carroll and Darragh Ahern restored parity at 2-14 apiece and there were ten minutes left to seek out a crucial victory. Despite having our tails up, Ballybricken Bohermore ended the match strongly and won by 2-18 to 2-14. The fourth match of the campaign is against Staker Wallace on Wednesday September 13 at 6.30pm in Ballybricken.

JUNIOR CAMOGIE: There were scenes of delight in Feenagh as Patrickswell won the Junior Camogie Cup final against Blackrock-Effin. It was a game of contrasting styles as Patrickswell went for points and our opponents aimed for the net. After twelve minutes, the scores were level at 0-4 to 1-1 (Ciara Barry, Ailish Byrnes and Leah O’Carroll 0-2). Blackrock Effin’s second goal was a setback, but Patrickswell dominated the remainder of the first half and led by 0-8 to 2-1 at the break (Leah O’Carroll 0-2, Sarah Carey and Roisin O’Brien).

For most of the second half, Patrickswell maintained our narrow lead. Four points from Sophie Carey, Roisin O’Brien 0-2 and Ailish Byrnes cancelled out Blackrock Effin’s attempt at recovery. There were five minutes to play and the ‘Well led by a narrow 0-12 to 2-5. With a degree of coolness, Patrickswell pulled away magnificently when Ciara Barry 0-2 and Ciara O’Brien put the gloss on a 0-15 to 2-6 win.

UNDER 13 HURLING: Patrickswell face Pallasgreen on Saturday September 16 in the U-13 Hurling Division 3 Championship Final.

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell overcame Ahane in the third match of the County Championship. Jordan Higgins gave the ‘Well a perfect start with a 2nd minute goal, before Tom Morrissey claimed Ahane’s first point. Further scores from John Kirby, Cian Fitzgerald and Cian Lynch allowed Patrickswell a 1-3 to 0-1 lead by the 10th minute. Tom Morrissey’s trio of frees trimmed our advantage to two points, but the ‘Well surged ahead with consecutive points from Aaron Gillane, Diarmaid Byrnes, Mark Carmody and Jordan Higgins. On the stroke of half-time, Ahane pulled a point back. The interval score was 1-7 to 0-5.

The initial ten minutes of the second half were keenly contested. Aaron Gillane scored a second Patrickswell goal and another point, while Ahane notched four points in reply. There were twenty minutes to play and we held a 2-8 to 0-9 advantage. Another point from Tom Morrissey narrowed the gap, but Patrickswell replied with two fresh points. By the 45th minute, the score was 2-10 to 0-10. The next five minutes were uncomfortable for the ‘Well as Ahane scored a goal and three points against our four points (Kevin O’Brien, Cian Lynch, Jack Kelleher and Aaron Gillane). With five minutes remaining, Patrickswell led by 2-14 to 1-13. Paddy Morrissey’s goal for Ahane blew the game wide open and set up the grandstand finale. Thankfully Kevin O’Brien and Aaron Gillane’s points saw Patrickswell safely home on a scoreline of 2-16 to 2-13.

SENIOR HURLERS: The Senior hurlers suffered defeat in their second Championship match against Doon. Pat Ryan scored the opening point for the East Men, before Aaron Gillane surprised Doon’s defence with a penalty goal when most spectators anticipated a point. The teams exchanged three points apiece (Diarmaid Byrnes, Jordan Higgins and John Kirby), so Patrickswell led by 1-3 to 0-4 after fifteen minutes. Doon’s first goal was followed by an immediate point, but John Kirby restored Patrickswell’s lead with a goal in the 17th minute. The ‘Well shaded the next five minutes, with points from Diarmaid Byrnes 0-2, Cian Lynch and John Kirby. By the 25th minute, Patrickswell were ahead by 2-7 to 1-7. Doon equalised with their second goal, but Patrickswell enjoyed a trio of points from Cian Fitzgerald, Aaron Gillane and Diarmaid Byrnes to reach the interval 2-10 to 2-7 ahead.

The pace of scoring at the start of the second half was slow. A brace of points from Aaron Gillane and a point from Cian Lynch kept Patrickswell 2-13 to 2-11 ahead by the 45th minute. Doon took the lead with three consecutive points in four minutes, but two long range drives from Mark Carmody restored the Patrickswell advantage. There were eight minutes left and the ‘Well led by 2-15 to 2-14. Unfortunately Doon were in the ascendancy and four points in seven minutes gave them a 2-18 to 2-15 lead on the cusp of injury time. Jordan Higgins notched a point as Patrickswell set themselves for a grand finale. Diarmaid Byrnes’ late free was smashed towards the Doon goal, but their congested ranks held out for a 2-18 to 2-16 win.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: Patrickswell suffered another setback in the Junior A championship against Askeaton. The opening five minutes were level pegging at 0-3 apiece (Darragh Ahern 0-2 and Thomas Nolan), before Eoin Harmon’s goal created some daylight. The next fifteen minutes were shaded by Askeaton, despite points from Darragh Ahern, Hugh Maher, Billy Earls and Conor Robinson. The scoreline on 20 minutes was now a narrow 1-7 to 0-9 lead for the ‘Well. Eoin Harmon and Cian Gorman restored the three-point lead, but Askeaton struck their first goal to equalise. Patrickswell dominated the closing stages of the half and Conor Robinson 0-2 with Eoin Harmon cemented a 1-13 to 1-10 lead at the break.

The second half began with an Askeaton onslaught, which yielded a goal and three points over eight minutes. Thomas Nolan’s goal was required to equalise at 2-13 apiece in the 40th minute. Askeaton took the lead by the 45th minute at 2-17 to 2-15. The game ended as a contest when Askeaton plundered a goal and two points in just three minutes. Eoin Harmon’s point stemmed the onslaught, but Patrickswell were now 3-19 to 2-16 adrift. The last ten minutes were tough for Patrickswell as five Askeaton points trumped Conor Robinson’s sole point. The final result was a 3-24 to 2-17 reverse.

GOLDEN TICKET WINNERS: Josh Carey won the €500 first prize, while Maureen O’Grady secured a lovely afternoon tea in the Woodlands House Hotel.

SENIOR HURLERS: Patrickswell recorded a magnificent victory over holders Na Piarsaigh in the opening match of the County Championship. In rain soaked conditions, Na Piarsaigh scored a goal within thirty seconds. Diarmaid Byrnes responded with two points and Calvin Carroll nabbed a goal to put the ‘Well 1-3 to 1-1 ahead after just five minutes. The pace of scoring slowed dramatically over the next fifteen minutes. Na Piarsaigh struck four points, while Jordan Higgins and Aaron Gillane replied for Patrickswell. The scoreboard in the 20th minute read 1-5 apiece. The closing stages of the first half were cagey. Na Piarsaigh added three points, but Patrickswell stayed in contention with points from Cian Lynch and Aaron Gillane. The Light Blues led by 1-8 to 1-7 at the interval.

The second half began with Patrickswell reaching parity at 1-12 apiece by the 40th minute. Cian Fitzgerald, Thomas O’Brien, Aaron Gillane 0-2 and Diarmaid Byrnes were the scorers. Aaron Gillane smashed a stunning goal in the 45th minute, but Na Piarsaigh were unbowed and replied with a trio of consecutive points. There was great excitement for the last ten minutes, with a tied score of 2-12 to 1-15. The All-Ireland trio of Diarmaid Byrnes, Aaron Gillane and Cian Lynch gave Patrickswell a strong hand by the 58th minute. The Caherdavin men pushed hard, but their only score was a point. Patrickswell won this tense encounter by 2-15 to 1-16. Their next fixture is against Doon on Thursday August 10 at 7pm in Bruff. Tickets must be purchased in advance on universe.com.

JUNIOR A HURLERS: The Junior A hurlers were defeated by an impressive Kilteely Dromkeen side in their Championship opener. With 15 minutes gone, our opponents were 1-4 to 0-2 ahead. Patrickswell edged back into the contest with five points from Eoin Harmon 0-2, Billy Earls and Peter Harty 0-2. Unfortunately a second Kilteely Dromkeen goal was very damaging. After 25 minutes, we trailed by 2-5 to 0-7. John Kirby claimed two points before the half-time whistle to make the score 2-6 to 0-9.

At the start of the second half, Patrickswell stayed in contention when David Woulfe, Peter Harty 0-2 and Josh Carey secured points for a 2-11 to 0-13 deficit. Kilteely Dromkeen’s salvo of four unanswered points put the game beyond Patrickswell’s reach at 2-15 to 0-13. Eoin Harmon’s point was met with a closing barrage of two goals and four points. The final result was 4-19 to 0-14. The boys have a chance of immediate recovery when they face Askeaton in Adare on Sunday August 13 at 1pm. Tickets must be purchased in advance on universe.com.

UNDER 19 HURLERS: Patrickswell lost their opening match of the U-19 Championship away to Askeaton. The ‘Well started brightly and built a 1-4 to 0-4 lead within ten minutes (Dayle McDonagh goal, Billy Earls 0-3, Liam Fitzgerald). The hosts then dominated for a short spell to establish a 1-10 to 1-7 lead by the 20th minute. Patrickswell were now under pressure and trailed further by 2-13 to 1-9 at the break.

Dayle McDonagh scored his second goal at the start of the half. The teams were cancelling each other out, so Askeaton remained 2-17 to 2-10 ahead by the 38th minute. Any hopes of a recovery were dashed by five consecutive points in five minutes. The teams entered the final quarter at 2-22 to 2-10. The rate of scoring ebbed over the next ten minutes as Askeaton led by 2-25 to 2-13. Unfortunately for Patrickswell, the home team notched two goals and a point in the closing stages to cement a 4-26 to 2-13 win.
