2020/2021 Minor and 2021 U20 Football – Details will be finalized when there is clarity on a return to training/play date.

Club Membership 2021 While we still await a definitive date of when training and games activities resume, we are working on being prepared to start without delay once a date is confirmed. One step in these preparations is to have members registered and in particular playing members. Players of all ages will need to be registered with the GAA via the Club to allow participation in activities and to complete health questionnaires as part of the ‘Return to Play’ protocol. 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 www.stpatsgaclub.com or type www.foirean.ie 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 www.foireann.ie and follow the instructions for New user. If you go to the Club website www.stpatsgaclub.com further information is provided and if you encounter any difficulties send an email to Sean at treasurer.stpatricksblennerville.kerry@gaa.ie<mailto:treasurer.stpatricksblennerville.kerry@gaa.ie>

Last Man Standing Competition

263 players commenced our competition and nine weeks later the competition is now down to 7 players Wolves and Arsenal both won their respective games resulting in the seven players progressing to week 10. Unfortunately for 3 players Man City recorded a rare defeat to Leeds and elimination is the fate for those 3 players.
Best of luck to the remaining 7 players in Week 10.
