The ‘Well must now face their neighbours and deadly rivals Adare in the quarter finals, while the Bouncers are likely to meet Doon.
Garryspillane, coached by Tony Considine, played like a team inspired in the first half and with a magnificent display of one-touch hurling, led 1-10 to 0-5 at the break.
The highlight for them was Donie Ryan’s goal after 16 minutes, the opportunity created by the evergreen Frankie Carroll.
Carroll, TJ Ryan and James Ryan hit points for Garryspillane, while Patrickswell had four of their five from Barry Foley frees.
The second half, however, told a different story.
The ‘Well upped gears and with Ciaran Carey and Paul O’Reilly leading from the back, they launched a fight-back.
Peter O’Reilly, Vincent Doherty, Eoin Foley, Brian Geoghegan and Barry Foley knocked over a string of points and the gap was cut to a manageable three, 1-13 to 0-13, after 50 minutes.
It might even have been closer had the losers not hit three wides on the trot.
Garryspillane needed more breathing space and Carroll provided it with a brace of points.
Still, the ‘Well kept chasing them and Eoin Foley continued to make life difficult, before TJ Ryan had the last say.
“At least we have ended the Patrickswell hoodoo,” said a delighted Considine afterwards.

Murroe Boher 3-18 Monaleen1-14
A STIRRING second-half performance saw Murroe Boher make it through to the last eight with an emphatic win at Caherconlish.
Outsiders Monaleen started well with points from Peter Russell and Shane Mullane, but saw their work ruined when veteran Owen O’Neill and Pat Tobin struck goals inside five minutes midway through the half.
Russell and John Cormican kept Monaleen’s hopes alive until the interval, at which stage Murroe Boher led by 2-7 to 0-10.
However, within minutes of the restart Tobin raised another green flag for a 3-9 to 0-10 lead.
Time was almost up when county footballer Muiris Gavin claimed the losers’ only goal.
Scorers for Murroe Boher: P Tobin 2-3, O O’Neill 1-1, P Butler 0-5, T O’Brien, K Tobin, P Laffan 0-2 each, P McNamara, J O’Connor, D Brouder 0-1 each.
Monaleen: P Russell 0-7, S Mullane, J Cormican 0-3 each, M Gavin 1-0, P O’Halloran 0-1.
Adare 1-20 Dromin-Athlacca 2-11
AS expected, Adare recorded a comfortable win over Dromin-Athlacca in their final league game.
Their reward is a clash with Patrickswell in the quarter-finals, while Dromin-Athlacca finished pointless and are in the relegation zone.
A 10th-minute goal from Brian Sexton sent Adare on their way and helped by points from Michael Noonan and Mark Foley, they were in the driving seat at 1-10 to 0-6 by the break. The same players racked up further points to make it 1-15 to 0-6 before Darren Murphy scored Dromin’s goal on 48 minutes.
Paul Neenan edged them closer but the gap was always too great and a goal from the same player on 58 minutes made little difference.
Scorers for Adare: M Noonan 0-8, B Sexton 1-4, M Foley 0-5, D Sheehan 0-2, A O’Connell 0-1.
Dromin-Athlacca: P Neenan 1-6, D Moynihan 1-0, O O’Leary 0-3, G Costello, D Walsh 0-1 each.
ADARE: T Houlihan; J O’Brien, M Clifford, J Healy, W McNamara, J Foley, S Lavin, A O’Rahilly, C Cribbin, A O’Connell, M Foley, M Noonan, B Sexton, B Foley, D Sheehan.
DROMIN-ATHLACCA: B Kelleher; J Quane, D Scully, P Herlihy, M Kelleher, O Benson, M Walsh, O O’Leary, G Kelleher, G Costello, P Neenan, G O’Leary, T Ryan, D Moynihan, D Walsh.

Kilmallock 2-15 Bruree 3-10
AN un-fancied Bruree gave Kilmallock a fright in their league section and led 1-6 to 0-7 at the interval.
But they were unable to sustain their effort and must now face into a three -way play-off with Croom and Knockainey, all having finished on two points, to determine second place.
Kilmallock will play Na Piarsaigh in the quarter-finals.
Bruree, led by former county player Steve McDonogh, gave little away in the opening half and a Mick Lane goal after 22 minutes saw them hold the initiative at the break.
Showing more urgency on the change of ends, Kilmallock turned the tables with goals from Mike Houlihan and Andrew O’Shaughnessy to forge ahead by five points.
But they could never shake off their opponents who, helped by a James O’Brien goal, were on level terms in the closing stages.
Up stepped O’Shaughnessy and Gavin O’Mahony to send over the match-winning scores.
Na Piarsaigh 1-19 Killeedy 0-12
DAVE HENNESSY, with a scoring burst of 1-6, was the central figure for Na Piarsaigh as they made it through to the last eight.
In the end it was comfortable for the Caherdavin side, who led 0-10 to 0-6 at the interval, having suffered a blow minutes into the match when county panellist Dave Breen was injured and had to leave the action.
