Juvenile Academy

U8: The U8’s took part in a go-game blitz organised by Ballyheigue Club on Monday 31st July and thanks to the parents and players for getting to Ballyheigue at short notice.

In all we played 3 games against Ballyheigue, Churchill and Ardfert with our players showing wholehearted effort and good skill in all of the games. Well done to James Daly, Niamh Murphy, Chloe Passway, Stephen Enright and Sharon Enright who were grateful for the help provided by Darragh Murphy, Orlaith Murphy, Rory Daly and Luke Passway.

We hope any of our under-8 players taking part in this week’s Cúl Camp will enjoy the activities and we look forward to seeing your improved skills when the Academy resumes.

U12 Girls: There will be U12 training for girls this Thursday at 6pm on the field. Any girls living in the local area and aren’t attached to any GAA club are more than welcome to join this exciting and talented group of young girls.

U12 Mixed: We will be competing in Div. 4 of the Central Region League and are grouped with Na Gaeil and Laune Rangers C, with the games being played on a home and away basis. Our first match is on Monday, the 14th of August when we welcome Laune Rangers C to Blennerville with a throw-in time of 7pm. Training continues on the usual days and times.

U16: St Pats U16’s booked their place in the semi-finals of Div 6 County League last Wednesday with a 13 point victory over a physical Kilgarvan/Tuosist side with Patrick Dowling bagging 2 goals and 3 points with 2 from frees and Fergal O’Brien 7 points with 3 coming from frees.

Playing in showery conditions in Blennerville, we opened scoring with Patrick Dowling, Fergal O’Brien and Martin Savage all scoring from play as our boys slowly settled in the game.

Our first goal of the match came in the closing minutes of the half when Luke O’Carroll and Patrick exchanged passes in their opponent’s danger area with the latter finishing brilliantly to leave the half-time scores at St Pats 1-08 Kilgarvan/Tuosist 1-02.

The second half continued the same way with the Pats dominating all areas and our defence line reducing the opposition once again to 3 scores as we added 2 more goals from Nathan Rowan and Patrick Dowling to leave the full-time scores at St Pats 3-12 Kilgarvan Tuosist 1-05

Team: Niall McCarthy, Paddy Murphy, Damien Quirke, Brian Teahan, Jamie O’Brien, Cathal Fitzgibbon, Martin Savage (0-1), Ian McCarthy (0-1), Ali Gardezi, Patrick Dowling (2-03, 2f), Fergal O’Brien (0-7, 3f), Darragh Moriarty, Kieran O’Donoghue, Luke O’Carroll, Nathan Rowan (1-0)

Subs: Tadhg Kerins, Mike Doody and Bradley Lynch

This victory sees us playing away to Fossa, this Wednesday the 9th, with a throw-in time of 7pm. We wish the entire panel the best of luck as they bid to qualify for the finals.


Training continues as usual on the designated days. Our next match is away to Beaufort in Round 10 Division 2 of the SFL and it has now been arranged for Friday, the 18th of August at 7.30pm.
