St. Patrick’s Secondary School is only half way through the school year but have already added two cups to the trophy cabinet.
The U-16.5 team has already secured the Joe O’Connor Cup early in December, the St Pat’s U-15 team then added a Munster title to the school’s tally for 2021 on winning the Éamonn Uí Mháirtín Cup.
The team achieved this in impressive fashion with a 5-13 to 0-6 win against Castletroy College on December 13th.
Cup Named after Kerry Man
It is the first time since 2016 that this cup, named after a Kerry man, has been brought back to the Kingdom.
Success has come from the hard work, dedication and training put in by these students under the guidance and commitment of their teachers and coaches, Pa McCarthy, John Forrest and John O’ Sullivan.
Working with these experienced and accomplished coaches has given this group of students a huge opportunity to develop and add to the skills and knowledge that they bring to the school from their local GAA clubs.
Munster Medals in Pockets
The school is delighted to have students with Munster medals in their pockets so early in their sporting lives.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank our generous sponsors: O’Connor’s Coaches and Crag Cave.
Having the backing and support of these thriving local businesses in getting these students suitably kitted out to participate in high level sports emphasises the great local commitment and pride of place fostered by the business community here in Castleisland.
