U16 HL V Courcey Rovers – 30/4


Courcey Rovers 4-10, Diarmuid Ó Murchús 3-7


The U16 hurlers eventually got to play their first hurling game of the season in Ballinspittle on Monday night. Courcey Rovers won by 8 points but the new Shamrocks/Crosshaven hurling combination can be happy with their efforts in their first ever outing. They had 15 players on duty and all got plenty of game time and contributed well.


Seán Andrews got an early DÓM goal and they led 1-0 to 0-2 early on. The lads played well together for a time but for the last 10 minutes before HT, Courcey Rovers went on a scoring spree and scored 2-4 without reply to move 3-6 to 1-3 ahead at HT. Tim Sheehan had another DÓM score in that half.


The second half was much better and after Courcuies scored 2 early points, the DÓM lads got the bit between their teeth. From 10 points down, they took over and scored a couple of goals from Mark Sisk and Adam Power. They were now within a goal of Courcies but that al important equalising score never came despite plenty of chances and Courcey Rovers finished the stronger. Overall, a good first outing.


Players on duty – Joe Glossop, Fionn Herlihy, Cian Herlihy, Mark Sisk, Harry Andrews, Christian Byrne, Seán Andrews, Josh McCarthy, Adam Power, Conor Finn, Owen MErchant, Tim Sheehan, Phipip Dorney, Adam McSweeney, John Coleman

U12 HL V Crosshaven – 27/4


Shamrocks 5-4, Crosshaven 5-2


A very exciting game on a heavy Shanbally pitch went Shamrocks way on Friday evening. The game was exciting all through and by the end, there was a fair amount of mud on the players jerseys – testament to the commitment shown by everybody. Well done to the players on duty

Co JAHL V Kilbree – 21/4


Kilbree 2-18, Shamrocks 3-11


The result was Kilbree 2-18 (24), Shamrocks 3-11 (20) and played in Rossmore under difficult underfoot conditions. After a slow start to the first half Shamrocks upped their performance in the second half and overall gave a very account of themselves. Shamrocks played great stuff in the second half and with a bit more time, would have won the match. Overall, a good outing Into the West

U10 HL V Crosshaven – 19/4

U14 FL V Aghinagh – 19/4


Aghinagh 5-9, Shamrocks 2-8


Aghinagh made the long journey to Shanbally this evening for this 2nd league fixture of the season. This game was well contested for up to the third quarter. Shamrocks held a good lead at that stage and looked likely winners. However, they ground to a halt and allowed their opponents to dominate the last quarter to run out easy winners.


This was a game Shamrocks left behind; a real pity as they were in control and playing so well. They’ll dust ourselves down and go again and hope to have learned from this experience. Thank you to the supporters.

U10 FL V Nemo Rangers – 14/4


Shamrocks u10s took on a talented Nemo Rangers team on Saturday morning in their second football match of the season. A full squad lined out for what turned out to be a great game. A great first half by the Shamrocks backs meant Shamrocks held a slender lead at halftime. Nemo came out strong in the second half and surged into a 4 point lead but a determined and spirited effort by the Shamrocks lads saw them score 4 goals and take a great win. Well done to all.
