Juvenile Academy:

There was a reasonable turnout for U10’s training last Sunday with the boys and girls sharpening up their skills as they continue to improve.

We will be participating in the John Mitchels tournament which will be held on Saturday, July the 25th and urge all parents and juveniles to be at the John Mitchels field at 10am. Please ensure all have their football boots, gloves and mouthguards/gumshields on the day. Please note that mouthguards/gumshields are compulsory for all training sessions.


St Pats future stars, our u-8’s, took part in a Go Games blitz last week which was  hosted by Ballyheigue. There were games v Ardfert, Ballyheigue and Churchill. In all the games our u-8’s  acquitted themselves very well.

All our St Pats players played the full games and moved around the pitch to get a taste of what is required in the different positions. They all played with great heart, spirit and determination that is expected when they wear the St Pats jersey.

Luke Passway, Ruben Wall and Caoilainn Culloo are improving so much with every outing while Justin O’Halloran, Killian O’Mahony, Darragh Murphy and Michael Enright all got on a lot of ball and their hand passing skills were great to see.

Millie and Mark O’Brien both covered an amount of ground during the games and both showed some fine kicking skills. Jack Costello, Daniel Sheehy and Grainne Breen all refreshed from their holidays got some lovely scores.

Rory Daly made a point blank save in one of the games, it was one of the best saves that was seen in Ballyheigue for a long time.

The management team of Johnny Enright, John Breen and Sean Daly are delighted with the improvement of the skills each player has shown so far and wish to thank Keelin Enright and Orlaith Murphy for helping out during the games.

It’s important that each players continues to turn up to each session and keep practicing their skills at home now that the summer holidays are here. We are back training at the pitch this Thursday  at 6pm then we take part in the Mitchel’s tournament this Saturday starting at 10am so hope to see ye all there.


Our u13’s put on a great display of football on Sunday evening against Kerins o Rahillys at home and were unfortunate not to come away with a win. It was a tight game and it was nip and tuck right to the final whistle.

Every player gave it 100% and some great football skills were displayed. Kerins o rahillys scored 1-2 without reply before Tomas O Sullivan got our first point to settle us and this was followed with a great goal from Darragh Moriarty.

David Fiado made some outstanding saves in goals and Daniel Moriarty, Michael doody, Samuel Abubaker and  Niall mc Carthy all played outstanding in defence.

Cormac lynch and Tomas fielded some great balls in midfield sending the ball into forwards Danny Greaney, Liam O Sullivan, Darragh Moriarty and Cillian lynch who got some lovely scores. Cormac lynch caught a great ball and passed if off to Danny who popped it over the bar. Half time score st.pats 1-2 K O R 2-4.

We started the second half in style when Cillian lynch planted the ball in the net after receiving a great ball from his brother Cormac. Danny followed with a point from a free and Cillian was awarded another free and again added to our score sheet. Both teams were now scoring some outstanding points.

St. Pats were on top of their game  and scored numerous points all from frees. We were 1 point down but Kerins o rahillys weren’t giving up and  finished the game off with a goal. Final score St.pats 2-8 Kerins o rahillys 3- 9

Team: David Fiado, Michael doody, Niall McCarthy, Samuel Abubaker, Daniel Moriarty, Tomas O’Sullivan, Cormac Lynch, Liam O’Sullivan, Darragh Moriarty, Cillian Lynch and Danny Greaney
