Shamrocks recently purchased a new set of floodlights for ALL teams in the club – adult, juvenile and Ladies Shamrocks Ladies Gaelic Football Club
Thanks to the generous sponsorship from Jimmy, Denis and John (local businesses), we were in a position to get these set up for the dark winter/early spring months to enable our teams to prepare for the season ahead.
They consist of 8 portable Rite Light floodlights which are battery powered.
The first session using the new lights was a football session with the U16s on Wednesday night (pictured below) and everyone seemed to enjoy the session with no compaintes regarding the level of visibility.
The club are seeking a volunteer(s) to serve as Secretary of Shamrocks GAA adult Club.
Competitions are due to commence early March.
This matter is now urgent.
Please contact the club Chairperson John Twomey (Socket) on 0876547331 if interested
