Juvenile Academy 


A great turnout for training. The boys and girls enjoyed warmup games with lots of running. Ball handling drills involved kicking, catching and passing. Well done to all and a special mention to our players of the week Sam and Jamie Curran.


A very enjoyable morning at training today, we had a quick few drills before we brought all those skills into a game. In preparation of the upcoming go games we joined up with the girls and enjoyed a few hard games Player of the week was Finn Scott who’s showing massive improvement.

U8 Girls

Very well done to our 16 under 8 girls this morning. We worked on hand passing, kick passing and tackling skills before joining up with the under 7 boys in preparation for the upcoming Under 7 ‘Go Games’ beginning soon.  The girls showed great skill and determination mixing with the boys and lifting the competitive intensity!  Very well done to Sophie Hennebery who got stuck in and enjoyed the game, scoring loads of goals.  Keep up the kicking and hand passing at home girls. Well done to all.


U9 Boys

We had a great session based mainly around some competitive games. Tommy Flynn and Paddy Costello scored some great goals and we saw some great defending from Flynn Howarth and Luke Galvin.

We play Gaeltacht at home on Wednesday at 6:30pm.

U10 Girls

U10 Girls trained today Sunday morning May 8th at St. Pat’s. They practiced skills, fitness and playing, coached by Labhraidh, Noel, Kieran and Monica. Medina was our player of the week. She worked really hard during the practice and the match displaying her skills and strength, showed great heart and deservedly won player of the week. All the girls today put in a strong effort at training. Well done to Medina and to all the girls! Remember to keep practicing at home and see you all next week!


Our U11’s played their penultimate game in phase one of the U11 County Go Games where we travelled to Finuge last Thursday night. It was our biggest turnout of the season which was fantastic with all 23 players getting loads of game time. We had some great performances from Rylan Flynn and Hugh Costello on the Bridge team and Cillian Enright and Daragh Murphy on the Windmill team.

Thanks to Alan and all in Finuge for being great hosts. Both games were very close. Our last game in phase one is away to An Ghaeltacht this Monday night. We didn’t train on Sunday with the game on Monday so we will train as normal next Thursday evening. Phase two of the County Go Games will commence on Thursday May 26th.

U12 Girls

Our u12 girls played away to Beale last Thursday evening.  All the girls fought hard throughout the game, however they were up against a much bigger and stronger team. The girls have a busy week of football ahead with a training session Wednesday, followed by the first county league match away to Dingle on Thursday evening.

The girls will also play in the North Kerry league plate final on Sunday next away to Abbeydorney. Finally congratulations to Meghan, who was our deserving player of the week and speedy recovery to Grace who’s carrying an injury at the moment.


Well done to all our players who were available to play on Sunday evening last allowing us to play a 15a-side game. From a degree of uncertainty about having a squad of players Castlegregory had 15 players togged out. Some of their dedicated players made the dash from Portlaoise where they had attended the Kerry under-20 game to Blennerville to ensure they had the strongest team possible.

While we had a good tussle with them in the first half our second half performance dropped and Castlegregory asserted themselves building up a commanding lead which they held to the end. It was a robust game with a lot of unnecessary fouling and the referee is to be commended for his handling of the game.

We continue to be at a disadvantage with a team with a lot of young players so well done to the boys for their efforts. On to the next game which takes place in Duagh at 6pm on Sunday 15th against the local team.


Best of luck to St Pats who play Castleisland Desmonds in the Co League Shield Final on Wednesday next at 7pm in Ballymac.

All support would be appreciated.

U17 Central Region

The Central Region sponsored by Kellihers’s Toyota Tralee St Pats/Kerins O Rahillys in their Round 2 have a Bye this week.


Development League Division 6 Round 3

St Pats 1-07

Clounmacon 1-09

Clounmacon opened the scoring with a point, Shane Jordan was the first to put a score on the board with his own point. Clounmacon scored a goal very quickly and went ahead. Another two points for Clounmacon put them ahead but St Pats were the only ones to score from then on with points from Ali Gardezi, Tómas O Sullivan, Killian Lynch, Shane Jordan and Ali Gardezi. This allowed St Pats to draw before the whistle blew for the first half. St Pats 0-06 to Clounmacon 1-03.

The second half started with a penalty for St Pats and Jack Lynch was the one to take it and score it.  Unfortunately Clounmacon dominated the second half from now on with six points. Ali Gardezi got us a point but it wasn’t enough to keep up with Clounmacon’s scoring. Every St Pats Player did the club proud on Sunday, they gave it everything and put everything on the line to come back. It wasn’t meant to be but they played extremely well. The whistle blew and it stood St Pats 1-07 Clounmacon 1-09.

Our seniors play in their Round 6 of the Credit Union County League against Dr Crokes B at home at 7pm on the 13th of May.


To Kevin Boyle who climbed his second mountain Island Peak a few days ago.

Good Luck 

To Fiona Costello who has received a nomination in Connect Kerry in the category of Health and Wellness.


The club would like to extend its sympathy to the families and friends of Jimmy O Grady Farmers Bridge and Margaret O Connor Clahane.

An air of sadness descended on St Pats this week as news of the passing of Margaret O Connor filtered through Margaret held many position and often multiple positions within our club executives during her many years of service to St Pats. Margaret gave her time freely to any and every event and cause happening in the club. She could always be relied upon for a helping hand.

Margaret was a true club Stalwart and will be fondly remembered by everyone in St Pats. Ni Bheidh a leithead an Aris. RIP Margaret.
