Shamrocks Hurling & Football Club

Shamrocks 1-12, Whitechurch 1-9

Shamrocks made the long trip to Whitechurch a winning one on Monday evening with a close 3 point win over the home team

U12 FL V Crosshaven Apr 14th

Crosshaven 6-5, Shamrocks 5-4

Well played everyone in a Shamrocks jersey it wasn’t to be on the day but the lads never gave up trying and kept going till the final whistle.

The final score was Crosshaven 6:05, Shamrocks 5:04 in what was a great game from 2 committed teams. They had a slow start, Crosshaven built up a lead but Shamrocks finished very strong but ran out of time in the end.

Shamrocks will all learn and improve from that performance, the players certainly didnt give up and payed some excellent football against a very good Crosshaven team; the coaches were very positive after the game, as they should be. ☘️☘️

They were never led thereafter; the closest Ó Murchús came to them was 2 points down with 8 minutes left but Grenagh held on for the win.

Tracton 2-15, Shamrocks 0-9

Shamrocks U16s hurlers travelled to Minane Bridge on Monday evening after giving up home advantage due to Shanbally being closed. Shamrocks, missing a few players due to injuries and players away along with players not starting after long layoffs, were up against it.

It was plain to see Tracton had a lot more work done on the hurling side of things than the Shamrocks lads, but they battled hard the whole game through. It has been a very tough start to the season, with training very limited due to the weather. Tracton winning out on a scoreline of 2-15 to 0-9. This, however, was a good workout for our lads, and hopefully, the weather picks up so they can get regular training in.
Shamrocks put over a free V Kilmacabea Mar 30th in Leap

Shamrocks 5-5, Kilmacabea 0-2

Shamrocks made the long trip to Leap to play Kilmacabea on Saturday afternoon. They came away with the convincing win.

Originally a home game, with the Shanbally pitch closed, Shamrocks had to travel.

With a very young team indeed with most of the players at U12, they produced a great display to win convincingly by 5-4 to 0-2.

Well done to all on travelling all the way to West Cork and starting off the season on a winning note. Thanks to the coaches Darragh, Hugh and Derek who took the team, also to the parents who drove the team, including Lisa who sent on a few photos

Belgooly 2-17, Shamrocks 1-13

Shamrocks lost their first hurling league game of the season on Sunday. The pitch in Shanbally passed a pitch inspection but the conditions were heavy and damp all through. Belgooly led 2-10 to 0-8 at HT and held on in the second half.

Shamrocks were short a few. They gave away 2 soft goals in the first half but the managemnet were pleased with the workrate and the attitude especially in the second half. Andrew O’Grady, Seán Andrews, Nathan Hayes and Seanán Collins were best for Shamrocks on the day.
