Juvenile Academy


Training continued this week after a break for the Dingle Way Challenge. All the boys and girls got involved. We practiced our ball handling skills; high ball fielding and we played a mini match to finish. Great teamwork all round. Well done all and congrats to Tom our Player of the Week.


The rain held off for this morning’s session, great numbers turned up and we played a mixture of games and football. Noel, Mike and James gave an exhibition of coaches. Player of the week was Bobby Dennehy

U8 Girls

Well done to our 14 girls on a great morning in John Mitchells. It was excellent to join in some of our younger girls for the experience. Great skills on display and we are learning all the time. Keep up the skills practice, we will train as normal next Sunday morning at St Pats.


We had a good session with small numbers this morning, there was a great effort put in by the boys. We practiced working in groups and communication, kicking, soloing and goal scoring.

We played a lively game where there were some brilliant block downs and point scoring, with Cillian Enright scoring the winner at the death.

We had some good performances from Noah, Nicholas and the two Darragh’s, while Aaron Costello took home the player of the week award. We play Annascaul on Wednesday in Blennerville at 6.30pm, meet at 6.15pm.

U10 Girls

U10 Girls played their 3rd match of the season this morning Sunday 12th of June away to John Mitchels.

The 11 girls played really well together and worked hard throughout the game. Rosa Barret Gordillo, Ria Horgan, Eve O’Sullivan and Sofia Ladjuscenkova played brilliantly throughout at the back. Rosie Dennehy, Hannah Enright and Ailbhe Hennessy had their scoring boots on today with all 3 of them scoring from midfield.

Our forward line of Rachel Colivet, Mary Kate O’Shea and Emma Gilbride worked really hard up-front with Emma getting on the scoreboard also with lovely scores from distance. With high scoring, the girls came out on top with another well-deserved win.

Well done girls on a great performance all around. Thanks to John Mitchels for hosting us, we hope to have this fixture again over the Summer. Training as normal next Sunday 19th of June at 10.30am.


Last week, we hosted Ballydonoghue/Clounmacon in Rd 2 of the U11 Go Games Phase 2. Whilst down a few regulars due to holidays and other activities, our 20 lads performed admirably and played some of the best football of the season.

Well done to all. Then on Sunday, we trained at the slightly earlier than normal time of 10:30am where we worked on 1v1’s, block downs and finished with a very close game. This week, we travel to Castleisland on Thursday to play Desmonds at 6:30pm. More details to go out to parents on the WhatsApp group later in the week.

U12 Girls

Well done on a great performance on Sunday last against Kerins o Rahillys. Once again every player played a great game giving it 100% and gave the opponents very little opportunity to get scores. We are playing away to Abbeydorney in round 6 of the county league on Tuesday evening at 6.15. Please be at the pitch for 5.45. We are currently 3rd on the leader board having won 3 games, drawn 1 and lost 1 which is a huge result for a team just starting out. Well done everyone.


Well done to our U13 team last Sunday evening in their away game against Dingle. Dingle had a stronger panel than last time we played them and with good football and the aid of the breeze they dominated the first half. We started slowly in the second before gradually battling our way back into the game dominating the exchanges and scoring for most of the half. What was very encouraging was the commitment and combination play by the team as they sought to reduce the deficit. Alas time proved the enemy in the end and well done to Dingle for a very enjoyable game.

U17 Central Region

St Pats/KoR 4-10 St Michaels Foilmore 0-18

Reality nearly bites.

Our minors advanced to the Central League Semi-final in joint top position after an unconvincing win away to Foilmore Monday 30th of May. Scoring efficiency was the difference at the end of the day as although Foilmore had the majority of possession, they were unable to convert enough to pull off a victory that no one in attendance would have called undeserved.

Playing 13 a side due to Foilmore numbers, our defence seemed a little unsteady compared to the solid display against Castlegregory. Midfield had their hands full while our forwards had to track back as Foilmore poured forward. Football is a results business and our lads managed to snatch victory in the final 10 mins, scoring 2-03 without reply as opponents wilted.

So job done, place secured but plenty for management and the team to ponder. We have been drawn at home to Skellig/Valentia in the semi-final on June 27th. The whole squad were invited to watch the Munster Minor Final in the Klub Bar, supporting Jake Foley, James Costello and Mark Fitzgerald. While the result went against the team, Jake’s performed to the best of his ability. Another minor team looking to bounce back from a poor performance.


This match was high intensity and quick paced from the very beginning. Both sides were eager to get the ball first Ballydonoghue were first with a point, which was added to with two points soon after. Fergal O Brien scored our first score of the match with a point, as the match progressed with lighting speed Fergal O Brien saw an opportunity and took it scoring a quick goal. The opposition put two more points on the board to go ahead, Kieran Hurley put his own shot over the bar. Ballydonoghue answered with their own point, Kieran Hurley scored the last point for us in this half. Ballydonoghue put two more scores a goal and a point on the board before the whistle blew for half time. St Pats 1-03 Ballydonoghue 1-08

The second half began much like the first with speed straight away, Brian Murphy was first off the mark to get a point. Ballydonoghue scored a point soon after Brian’s, this began a long and tough few minutes with no scores from either side for 10 minutes or more. Eoin Greaney stepped up to break us out of it with a point with a tremendous shot. With points from Fergal O Brien, Kieran Hurley and Eoin Greaney it was tense moments to keep hold of the ball. Ballydonoghue scored themselves a point to keep just ahead, it was a hard played match with great relentless shown unfortunately it was not to be, and the final whistle blew. St Pats 1-08 Ballydonoghue 1-10.

On Sunday 19th of June St Pats B away to Beaufort in Round 5 of the Development League at 2pm.
