St. Patrick's Club notes - 27th November 2017
Congratulations to our U16 girls Lucy Dunne, Niamh Caffrey, Jess Lyons, Naoise O'Reilly, Siobhan Gorman and Zoe Armstrong who were selected to represent County Wicklow at U16 level for 2018.
Hard luck to our neighbours and Wicklow Champions Rathnew who bowed out of the Leinster championship in their semi-final with Moorefield in Aughrim. It finished 2-13 to 2-07. Well done to Rathnew who created a little buzz of excitement and belief in Wicklow football again.
Well done to our own Eddie Leonard who did an excellent job on his first live broadcast for East Coast FM commentating on Sunday's Leinster Championship semi-final in Aughrim between Rathnew and Moorefield.
We wish our neighbours and Wicklow County Champions Glenealy all the best in the Leinster Hurling Final next Sunday when they take on the Kilkenny Champions St. Patrick's Ballyragget.

St. Patrick's GAA Club needs volunteers. Due to the retirement of John Smith and Patrice Evans from their roles in club communication we are looking for the right candidates to take over, ideally you require knowledge of social media. Training can be provided if you can spare a few hours a week and have an interest in St Patrick's GAA?
