WELCOME back to Club Notes for 2015. The work never stops in Pats-land and since last Club Notes, we've had an AGM, an EGM, a Disco, a Juvenile Table Quiz and elected Rory O'Neill as our new Chairman. Our Hurling Academy teams have been working very hard and that work is paying off as they have been playing so well in Gormanstown Tournament. Congrats to all the lads and their hard-working mentors. Our U14 boys played their first Division 3 challenge match on Saturday. Their parents' nerves were high, but any doubts were unfounded as the lads more than performed, coming away with a handsome win against Geraldine P Morans. We're looking forward to seeing them in action again. We're all aiming high here in Pat's and were delighted to see Pat's own Charlo named in Jim Gavin's squad for the O'Byrne Cup Final against Kildare. Congrats to Niall Collins on this great achievement; he really is the epitome of a club man and we're lucky to have him in the parish. Well done to the 2004-2006 boys and girls, who enjoyed the Table Quiz on Saturday afternoon. Sincere thanks to the Mentors and Admin Teams who organised it so well. It's great to see everyone having fun together on and off the pitch. There's even more good news coming in DCC, where the U18 lads won their semi-final last Friday. No date for the Final yet, but we're all looking forward to it. As you'll be aware, it's membership season. Once again, membership can be paid online at www.myclubfinances.com.
