On Monday 4th December in Rosetown Patrician Secondary School Newbridge played St Kevins Community College, Dunlavin in the Quarter Final of the Anne McInerney Leinster Senior Development Cup.
Patrician SS Newbridge 27 St Kevins Dunlavin 15
A tough match between two good teams play who played some super rugby each side making a huge effort. In the end Patrician SCT defeated St Kevins Dunlavin by 27 pts to 15 after a bruising encounter. The commitment of both groups of players reflected very positively on both schools. Compliments to all who support all these young men through rugby. This is a great result for the Patrician Secondary School with the team being filled with players from Newbridge RFC and Cill Dara RFC. Next up for PSS SCT is the Cup Semi-Final which will be held in Rosetown. Date and kick off time to be advised.
Pictured below is the winning Patrician SS SCT panel.

Our Clubhouse Development Project reached its first major milestone last week when we secured a sports grant for €51,000 from the Minister for Sport. When this is added to the proceeds of the successful Kube Fundraiser earlier this year and other club development funds, the combined funding raised now exceeds €100,000.
The cost of building the new dressing rooms, showers and a gym for the players is going to be €250,000, so the executive committee has been working behind the scenes over the past 12 months to raise as much funds as possible before formally launching the project to the wider membership and setting out what will be needed in terms of fund-raising to complete the development over the next 18 months.
Thankfully, each year the membership continues to grow, particularly in the Minis and Youths areas and over the past year we have also seen rapid growth in the number of Girls playing rugby with us. We’re conscious of the urgent need to upgrade and expand the clubhouse facilities for all our players’ benefit.
There were over 1,700 successful applications for sports grants from sports organisations throughout Ireland, and our allocation of €51,000 places us in the top 20% of all applicants. It’s a great achievement and credit is due to all concerned, in particular to Dave Ashe who led the initiative.
In January, we will hold a Clubhouse Development Launch Night for all members and friends of the club at which we’ll be announcing our building plans and fundraising initiatives and letting you know what you can do to help. We’ll let you know all about it closer to the time.
If you or anyone you know is interested in playing rugby and joining a girls rugby team then come out to Rosetown to learn more. You can also contact our Girls Rugby Co-ordinator Paul Treacey at 086 2624073.

Patrician SS Nenridge 42 Oatlands College Dublin 12
Congratulations to the Patricians SS JCT who are now into the Semi-Finals of Leinster's Pat Rossiter Schools Cup. Patrician SS Juniors defeated Oatlands College by 42pts to 12 on Thursday 7th December in Dublin at Stradbrook, the home of Blackrock RFC. This was a tough game full of effort, energy and determination. Both teams displayes guts, graft and great rugby.
There were standout performances across the whole PSS team with committed defence, sharp attacking rugby and smart tactical kicking on display. Well done to all involved. A special word of continuing thanks to Ms. Langton, Mr. McGrath and Mr. Burke for all their work in supporting this team. Photograph below of Patricians SS JCT Squad
