St Kevins at Padraig Pearses 7s

St Kevins GAC

St Kevins GAC - 7's 2018

February plays host to the annual Padraig Pearses 7-a-side competition. The tournament is held every year with several gaelic teams from across Australia participating.  

Fortunately for us, both our ladies and men's teams won their group stages and made it to the Semi-Finals! 

The ladies disappointedly lost by 1 point to Sydney Cormac McAnallens. It was one of the best performances by the ladies who worked tirelessly throughout the entire tournament.

The boys were very unlucky in their semi final, there was a slight confusion with interchange and their score was defaulted back to zero at half time. They narrowly lost out to Clan naGael from Sydney but played an amazing tournament.

Both teams really deserved all the celebrations that followed especially enjoying the party bus back to a few bars around St Kilda. 

We would also like to give a shout out to our loyal supporters, friends and family who made the journey out to Gaelic park to cheer on the teams - it really makes all the hard work worthwhile. 

What a great day out celebrating Irish culture within the community, we can't wait for 2019. 

Thanks also to Healthcare Australia our platinum sponsors who are continuously supporting St Kevin's - we've some exciting collaborations coming up with HCA so watch this space.
