Hurling League Div 3 Burren Rangers 9.5 St Patrick's 2.6


Played in Kilbride pitch on Friday 5/5/17 this game was nearly over after 15 minutes with the home side leading by 5 goals to nil with Kilkenny mam Jarelth Bolger at full forward cleaning house with the wind bringing lots of ball his way.

St Pats had the wind in the second half and won the second half, but also hit a lot of winds. 

Paul Sheppard got both goals in the second half but the home side had the game won by half time and were fully deserving of the win. Bolger got 6 goals and set up a few scores too! 

One great part of this game was to see a man that both sides are so fond of that to the field later on. Anyone who has played GAA in Carlow over the last 30 odd years will know and admire James Connolly. Forming a Pats player, James (who now lives in Ballon) trains the Burren Rangers team. Well.. late in this game his side needed a sub and there were none, James does what he does best and took his hurl in hand and took to the field of play and marked a few of his former Tullow students for the last 15 minutes!

St Patrick's play St Mullins next Friday night in Bro. Leo with a big improvement needed.

Sean Smith, Michael Smith, Allan O’Neill, Ryan O'Neill, John O'Brien, Jamie Ansbro, Sid Hogan, Pádraig Murphy, Richie Cooper, Paul Sheppard  (2-3), Shane Farrell (0-2), Ben Jackman, Nathan Doran, Brendan Keogh, Gerry Dooley.
