Juvenile Academy 


All the boys and girls had fun practicing their football skills, with lots of movement, running with the ball, catching, passing and a game of dodging the volcanoes to finish! Congratulations to our players of the week, Naoise and Oisin.

U7 Boys

The skill level went up a notch today with the boys all working on their running skills. We had a good turn out and they all practised very hard. They were expertly coached by Mike and James. Every time the games are getting less like a royal rumble, the more we play.
A big congrats to Oisin Dunne who’s was player of the week and was definitely practising a lot at home.

U8 Girls

We had 16 girls training in the full hall C On Sunday Morning in the MTU. We welcomed Sophie & Natalie to our group, delighted to hear their school friends had spread the word! We played fun evasion games involving our skills & a new game of ‘Bounce Queen’ the girls enjoyed the high tempo & competitive edge! With great space we split to senior/ junior ends & played 2 matches. Thanks to John McMillan for joining in & mentoring his blue team with a will to win! All the girls are getting the hang of match play & skills.

Very well done to the senior end march play with great skills on show. The player of the week was picked from the junior end for getting stuck in & having fun. Well done to Anna Poff for winning our player of the week trophy.

We look forward to welcoming any more interested under 8 girls in the coming weeks. Go St Pats!


The u9s and u11s had a joint training session on Sunday morning in the sunshine and the big numbers made for a great atmosphere. We practiced our soloing, kick passing, and range of movements before breaking into two games where the boys showed off all their skills with two very competitive games. See you all again next Sunday.

U10 Girls

U10 Girls trained today Sunday morning March 27th on the astro turf pitch at Kerry Sports Academy. The sun was shining again this week on the girls as they practiced skills, fitness and playing, coached by Labhraidh, Kieran and Monica.

The focus of today’s training was kicking techniques including high and low kicks followed by goal and pint kicking then finishing on a match. Emma Lacey worked especially hard during the practice and the match displaying her excellent scoring and tackling abilities and deservedly won player of the week. All the girls today put in a strong effort at training. Well done to Emma and to all the girls! Remember to keep practicing at home and see you all week!


We had a busy few days this week with the U11’s. We travelled to Churchill last Thursday night to the locals for the first Rd of the Tralee/St Brendan’s League. Both clubs had 22 players so we had 4 very good games.

We were a bit rusty but we have all season to improve. Well done to all the players who played their first ever game with the U11’s.

Then on Sunday, we combined with our U9’s for a training session on the Astro at the MTU and it was a worthwhile exercise with plenty fun and lots of close small sided games.

Our plan is to train this Thursday evening with a time to be confirmed on the WhatsApp group. We will also train next Sunday at 11am at the MTU where we will have our last session up there before we move back to the pitch in Blennerville.

We will play Kerins O’Rahillys on Thursday week April 7th in Blennerville at 6.30pm in our last game of the local district league. The U11 county league will start the following Thursday night. Keep up the practice at home.

U12 Girls

Our u12’s put on a great display of football last Wednesday night at home against Austin Stacks and were unlucky not to come away with a well-deserved win.

Every player from number 1 to 15 gave it 100% and each one of them should be so proud of themselves. Eve O Sullivan played outstanding in goals saving numerous shots on target keeping St. Pats in the game. Her kick outs were fantastic finding her red and white teammates at all times.

In defence Grace Costello, Meaghan Barrero, Chloe Passway, Safira Ekren and Alanna O Mahoney were on top of their game preventing a lot of the Austin stacks forwards from getting their names on the scoreboard.

In midfield Sarah Greaney and Aisling O Mahoney ran themselves into the ground covering every blade of grass on the field while fielding some great ball and giving lovely passes into their forward line.

Kaela Reidy, Saorlaith Costello, Ailbhe Hennessy, Niamh Murphy and Lucy Smyth all worked so well together in the forward line, getting out in front of the defenders and scored some lovely pints. Our subs Grace Roche and Hannah Enright who both are also u 10 players made a huge impact on the game when introduced and Hannah even planted the ball into the back of the net giving St. Pats a 1 point lead.

Unfortunately Austin Stacks managed to sneak a late goal allowing them to win the game by 2 points. It was a very tight and entertaining game and all our supporters are looking forward to seeing another great performance in our next game on Thursday evening away to Abbeydorney Kittens. Well done girls.

U13 Boys

Our U13 team began their Co. League campaign with a win against Daingean Uí Chúis last Sunday evening. Both teams benefited from the ideal weather conditions that allowed the skillsets of both teams to be displayed. From St Pat’s perspective it was also the first time in the last few weekends that most of the panel were available to play. Some of the boys had already participated in a rugby blitz in Abbeyfeale earlier in the day so well done to Luke, Tommy and Hugh for being available and playing well.

While Pat’s dominated for most of the game the fighting spirit and quality of Daingean Uí Chúis kept us under pressure throughout and didn’t at any stage allow us to relax. It was great to start with a win so well done to all of our players. Our next Co. League game is an away game scheduled for Sunday 3rd April at 6pm against Moyvane.


Best wishes to our U 15s who commence their U15 County League Round 1 on Wednesday 30th of March with an away game against Moyvane at 7pm.


Our Minors didn’t ended up playing their Round 4 against Dromid/Waterville which will now be played at a later date.


Our seniors play in their Round 2 Credit Union County League game against St Senan’s in Blennerville at 6pm on the 2nd of April.

St Pats B vs Tarbert B

In sunny but cold conditions St Pats took to the field, it was Tarbert who scored the first two points of the game. Tarbert got another point soon after with a three point lead St Pats put three scores up one from Breandan Savage and two from Tómas Sullivan. St Pats got a penalty in first fifteen minutes of the first half. Breandan Savage took it and into the back of the net it went. Tarbert replied with a goal and two points soon after. Tómas Sullivan scored another point for St Pats with Breandan Savage also adding another point a few minutes after. Tarbert scored two more points to bring the half time score to St Pats 1-05 to Tarbert 1-07.

As the sun began to set the second half got underway St Pats gathered scores with Shane Jordan getting a point and Breandan Savage scoring two points in quick succession. Tarbert answered back with a point and then a goal. Tarbert pulled ahead with three points, St Pats subbed Danny Greaney for Jack Lynch. Breandan Savage got two points one after another, Tarbert got a point of their own.

Shane Jordan scored another point and Breandan Savage added two more points. In the final minutes a free was given Breandan Savage stepped up to take it, with Tarbert filling the goals Breandan Savage took a shot for goal.

The referee deemed the ball was picked off the ground by the Tarbert goalkeeper and got Breandan Savage to take it again. Again Tarbert filled the goals but this time the Breandan Savage shot went through the legs of the Tarbert players and in to the back of the net.

The Full time whistle blew and the score line finished St Pats B 2-13 to Tarbert B 2-12. All players played exceptionally well but the standout player was Breandan Savage who scored 2-08 out of 2-13.
