St Patrick's Juvenile Hurling & Football Club Tullow

Bro Leo Slattery was born in Ballymackey Nenagh Co Tipperary. He joined the Patrician brothers in 1894, he taught Fethard, Galway, Mallow and taught for twelve years in Tullow. Bro Leo trained the young Tullow teams and in 1948 their effort was rewarded when they took the under 14 County title. It was Bro Leo who purchased the present playing field in 1931 so as the Club would have a permanent home. The playing field was then known as Tullow Gaelic Park, it was not until 1966 that Extra ground was purchased and the park was then officially opened and called after Bro Leo.
