On Saturday last our u21 football game was postponed as a mark of respect to the late Michael McGrath of The Big Sycamore Garage in Grangemockler, who died following an accident while working in his garage. Michael was a selector when St. Patrick’s and Grangemockler amalgamated at minor level a few years ago and his son Wayne was a member of that panel. We extend sympathy to his wife Kathryn, his son Wayne and his sister-in-law Ann Brett of Knockroe, Drangan. This Saturday our u21 team travel to Ballylooby for a 3pm throw in against Fr. Sheehys/ Ballylooby.
Due to the bad weather our Co. League game against Rockwell Rovers was postponed.

Recent Bereavement: We extend the sympathy of St. Patrick’s GAA Club to the Crannitch family, Ballinard, on the death of Michael Crannitch. Michael served as a selector with several of our underage teams and his son Michael Junior was a prominent hurler and footballer with St. Patrick’s for several years winning a South Senior Football medal in 1990, a South Junior Hurling medal and South and County Junior Football medals in 1991 and a South Intermediate Football medal in 1995. The next generation of the Crannitch family are already making a name for themselves as Ryan and Cian are prominent members of our u10 hurling and football teams and won South Tipperary u10 football medals in 2012 and 2013.
