Hence the colours! :shushing_face:


#3957

Was there any club before the 40s?


#3958

Ballybrown, same parish.


#3959

Id have to ask one the older lads been honest!


#3960

:face_with_symbols_over_mouth: Don’t go there!!


#3961

There actually was a club formed after the split with Ballybrown, forget the name. Eventually became Patrickswell.


#3962

Was there a split between The Well and Ballybrown in the 40s or did Patrickswell side of the parish just form their own club?


#3963

We wouldn’t even break bread with them now!


#3964

We dealt with him for years in mary I down in the hall playing indoor. A sound man and a bloody great hurler. A fair lush mind you as well but a very nice fella.

RIP


#3965

In the 50s. Two of the older Bennis lads played with Ballybrown I believe, even after the clubs split.


#3966

Two fairly strong clubs for the one parish. Is there other parishes with as many county senior championships, provincial championships, county players, All Stars, etc?? Imagine what they’d be like as one club. Actually it’s probably their hatred of each other that raised the standards in both clubs


#3967

When Patrickswell had all their success the team was built around 3 or 4 families. Even when they were winning county finals, they hardly had 18 players. It’s a tiny parish with a small population. One cul de sac produced the Careys and Kirbys which was about six player on the team. You won’t see that again.

04 to 08 and did another stint after for an extra few letters. Came away with a few medals from the place too, we tried getting Leonard involved one year but he’d no interest! :laughing: Don’t think himself and Cregan saw eye to eye on hurling matters, there was certainly no close friendship there though they did chat away


#3969

Would Leonard have not missed many years with limerick and pwell due to playing soccer and rugby ?


#3970

Pretty sure he played them at the same time mostly but there may have been a year or two he didn’t hurl with the county, older posters would know more


#3971

Mick Mackey was a massive fan of soccer so he got himself appointed as a scout at matches to report on who was playing or in the crowd so he could attend football :smile:


#3972

They asked him to stop going to watch soccer and rugby games, he told them to fuck off, so their way around it was to appoint him a special official for monitoring what members were going to these games :laughing:


#3973

Breska


#3974

There’s a soccer club in Clarina who play in the Desmond League called Breska Rovers


#3975

That’s mad. That was the original name of Patrickswell GAA. Think they started with a pitch down by Clounanna between the Well and Clarina.
