Puc Fada – 29/12


Well done to everyone who took part in the very successful Puc Fada, which took place along the usual National Road Route between The Oratory Ringaskiddy and Shanbally Cross.


The forecast was bad but we just about were allowed by Mother Nature to complete the course in time before the serious rain arrived, despite the protestations of Colin O’Sullivan who blamed the cross wind and his late arrival (nothing new there) on his disappointing 27 shots!


Well done to all our winners, in particular Brian Sweeney who won the overall in an impressive 22 shots, followed by Cathal Kidney in second (after a playoff) with 25.



The following is the list of winners –


Senior Mens – Winner : Brian Sweeney (22 shots), Runner Up : Cathal Kidney (25 shots).


Womens – Winner : Ann Marie O’Flaherty, Runner Up : Laura McCarthy.


Mens over 50′s – Winner : Declan O’Neill, Runner Up : Jim Ronayne.


Mens over 40′s – Winner : Kevin O’Grady, Runner Up : Nick Lester.


U18 boys – Winner : Coby O’Grady, Runner Up : Darragh Scriven.


U15 Boys – Winner : Andrew O’Grady, Runner Up : David Andrews.

Underage/Girls Christmas Disco – 8/12


The boys Underage and the Girls Football held a joint Christmas Disco in Fernhill Golf and Country Club on Saunday evening last.


There were over 110 kids, boys and girls who danced the 2 hours away and were given plentry of grub. All the parents supported the successful event and it was great to see such a big crowd enjoying themselves in the social setting.


All the girls who played with Shamrocks this year were presented with medals, as were the under 8 and 10 boys who took part in the interclub blitzes throughout the year.


The highlight was the under 12 boys footballers being presented with their Rebel Óg East medals for winning the league in the final played in September. The lads got a great cheer as all their photo’s were taken receiving the medals, with a slideshow of the successful year in the background, courtesy of Frank Van Pelt.


Underage Secretary Pa Andrews thanked everyone on behalf of the Club who contributed to the year and to those who organised the evening (Gemma and Susan) and wished everyone a Happy Christmas.


See you all in January 2014!
