Wicklow GAA have announced the inclement weather of 2018 has yet again caused the postponement of juvenile games including the Feile football qualification scheduled for this weekend. The Feile Football qualification has been refixed for Friday April 20th and the hurling qualification series will go ahead on April 14th as planned.


The Littlewoods Ireland GAA Go Games were launched on Wednesday in Croke Park with Anna Geary and Austin Gleeson Over 4,000 children got the chance to play in Croke Park during the week! For the second year running, Littlewoods Ireland sponsored the GAA Go Games Provincial Days. They further enhanced the experience for Ireland's up and coming GAA stars by creating a pitch-side studio. Following their matches, the children had more photos taken and were interviewed, just like the adult GAA superstars. Our own Croke Park heroes got to play Rathcoffey Kildare in football and Carrig Riverstown from Offaly in hurling. The boys had a great time and we came out on top in both games to make their day even more enjoyable! Former Cork camogie star Anna Geary and DWTS celebrity was on hand in the Croke Park Hotel to meet the St Pats players and some of our camogie girls! Roll on next year!
Well done to all the Coaches, Mentors, Parents and all the players who represented our Club so well.

The event is being supported again this year by Electric Ireland. Darkness Into Light began in 2009 when 400 people came together in Dublin's Phoenix Park to raise awareness about suicide and self-harm. From these humble beginnings, Darkness Into Light has blossomed into a global movement against suicide and self-harm, with over 200,000 expected to take part on Saturday, May 12th this year. This unique event begins at 4.15am as participants walk 5km routes around the world and finish as the dawn is breaking, journeying together from Darkness Into Light.
