Many thanks to all who contribute to our weekly Club Lotto. The Club cannot emphasise enough the importance of our members promoting the Club Lotto among family, friends and work colleagues. The Covid-19 restrictions have seriously hampered our fundraising and income The Lotto is now the critical and only source of funds for the Club. We are appealing to all club members to promote our lotto at this time as we are in dire need of funds to keep the club afloat.
Please have your lotto entries in by 7pm, every Sunday evenings.

Return of The St Pats Academy

With the government guidelines allowing for outdoor training for underage groups from April 26th, our academy will return on Sunday May 2nd at our club grounds in Blennerville at 10:30am. We welcome all boys and girls from the ages of 4 to 11 living in Tralee to come and join us this season. Please contact our Juvenile Chairman Joe Costello on 0872593800 for all queries. Further details will be announced in next week’s notes. Looking forward to seeing you all again on Sunday week.

Covid-19 Update

Return to training – Non-contact training in pods of 15 will be permitted for our underage (any registered team at U18 and below) teams from the 26th of April. As with previous return to training, the key control measures remain completion of the online education module and completion of the Health Questionnaire before each session. Our head coaches will be in touch with their teams before this date.
Also note that all indoor facilities must remain closed.

Attendance at training – In general, only players and coaches of the relevant team should attend any training session. One Parent or Guardian per child (or per family if more than one child is attending from a particular family) is permitted to attend in a safeguarding /supervisory capacity involving any team in the U-18 or below age group, should they consider it necessary. However strict social distancing and public health guidelines should be adhered to at all times.
In particular, it is important that parents do not congregate in groups before or after sessions, outside of what is permitted in current Government regulations.

Club Membership 2021 The GAA has introduced a new on-line system which provides for self-service membership registration and payment for individuals and families. The system is called Foireann, which is Irish for Team, and can be accessed via the Club website or type into your internet browser. Members who set up a ‘ReturnToPlay’ account in 2019 to complete the Health Questionnaires can access their Foireann account by using the same logon id and password as used last year. If you don’t have a ReturnToPlay account then you can register a new account very easily on Foireann. Go to and follow the instructions for New user. If you go to the Club website further information is provided and if you encounter any difficulties send an email to Sean at<>

Last Man Standing Competition

Week 10 of our competition centred around 2 games last Saturday with West Ham losing to Newcastle United in a high scoring game which saw 3 players exit the competition therefore Wolves victory over Sheffield United leaves 4 players, Philip Corrigan, Sean Kelly, Diarmuid O’Connor and PJ Rowan still in contention for the top prize of €400.
Best of luck to the remaining 4 players.
