Ó Murchús U18 Hurlers who beat Ballygarvan in the League in Shanbally, 15/5/24

Ó Murchús 2-12, Ballygarvan 3-6

Well done to the Minor Hurlers of Ó Murchús who had a close fought victory over neighbours Ballygarvan in Shanbally on Wednesday evening.

It was close all through with a bit of needle in the game with a couple of flashpoints. Ballygarvan led by a point at HT, 1-8 to 1-7, the Ó Murchús goal from Cian Lynch. That git them back into the game after Ballygarvan had opened up a 4 point lead.

Ballygarvan opened up another 4 point lead straight after the HT whistle with a goal. There was only 1 point scored between the 2 teams over the next 20 minutes as both teams went at it.
O’Murchús finally wore down Ballygarvan with a quick fire 1-3 in the space of 3 minutes, the goal courtesy if Ruairc Sisk and Ó Murchús held on for the all important win.
Scorers – Lynch 1-2, Sisk 1-1, Barry O’Mahony 0-4, Sam Foy 0-2, Senan Buckley 0-1, Josh Bartlett 0-1, Cathal O’Donovan 0-1

Ó Murchús U18 Hurlers who beat Ballygarvan in the League in Shanbally, 15/5/24

In January this year one of our juvenile members was diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma (cancer of the eye).

He needed radiation treatment at St. Lukes Oncology Rathgar Dublin. He was a child in an adult hospital and the support and services offered to him and his family from the Friends of St Lukes made their time away from home for treatment so much easier. As a family they would like to give back for future families who need this care.

The Club are hosting a fun run/ walk on Sunday 16th June at 11.30 am to help raise funds for this very worthy cause. Please come and show your support.
You can donate to the link below or to the money buckets on the morning. Thank you.

Colm gives out the medals at the end

Well done to our Under 11s this morning in Ballygarvan.

Because so many were missing, all eleven players had to play all 3 matches in the heat against the other clubs who had way more players, could rotate when they wanted and teh Shamrocks players clearly ran out of steam especially in the second and third games. But they tried their heart out.

They lost to Ballygarvan and Crosshaven and drew with Passage. They are an extremely young team with all bar one (yes ONE) underage again neext year and the experience will stand to them no doubt.
Our thanks to all who took part and to coaches Colm, Colin, David and Darragh for running the team. Also a shout out to the parents for their great support on the bank on a beautiful morning.
