U16 HL V Lee Gaels – 29/4


Diarmuid Ó Murchús 3-12, Lee Gaels 0-1


DÓMs got their forth win in April courtesy of a win over Lee Gaels in Dripsey on Monday night. Ó Murchú’s were always on top eventhough they were slow to get the scores on the board in the first half, leading 1-6 to 0-0 at HT. A much better second half display from all the players say them win comfortably.

U10 FL V Brian Dillons – 25/4


Shamrocks and Brian Dillons played on Thursday evening in the Tank Field on Thursday evening. Shamrocks got off to a good start and kicked some nice points. Poor shooting through the first half allowed Dillons back into the game after they got 2 lucky goals from long range. However, with the wind assisting in the second half, Shamrocks took control of the game and kicked some superb points. Final score was a very impressive Shamrocks 1-14, Brian Dillons 3-0. A good evening overall with the U9s playing Dillons alongside this game and also playing well 

U9 FL V Brian Dillons – 25/4

U16 HL V Raonaithe na nGael


Diarmuid Ó Murchús 4-11, Raonaithe na nGael 2-14


This was a cracking game of hurling played in Whitescross on Easter Monday evening. Raonaithe na nGael were quick off the mark and scored 1-3 before Ó Murchus even attacked. Ó Murchú’s registered 2 goals themselves before Raonaithe na nGael pushed on before halftime impressively, and they led 2-12 to 2-3 and looked likely winners.


One or two positional switches seemed to work for Ó Murchús in the second half. After plenty of early possession resulted in no scores, a goal 15 minutes from the end seemed ignite their comeback. They were in top in all sectors now and finished with all the momentum, scoring 2-3 to 0-0 in that time to seal the 1 goal win. Well done to all the players and parents for travelling out on Easter Monday.

U14 HL V Crosshaven – 19/4


Shamrocks 8-5, Crosshaven 6-8


We played our first hurling game of the season at U14 level in Crosshaven on Tuesday evening. Both teams started brightly and it was Crosshaven who got the early scores on the board with some fine long distance frees. We settled after a while and soon scored 1-03 without reply. Crosshaven got some late scores approaching half time to leave them in a very strong position at the break. They lead on a score line of 4-06 to 2-03.



Shamrocks started the second half on the front foot and kept battling away to slowly reduce the deficit. We hit a purple patch with 15 minutes to go and camped in the Crosshaven half. With 5 minutes left the scores were level. A final push resulted in us scoring 1-01 to finish the game on a high. Final score. Shamrocks 8-05 Crosshaven 6-08.

U16 HL V Mayfield – 13/4


Diarmuid Ó Murchús 6-8, Mayfield 0-1


A comfortable win for DÓMs in a wet and very windy Shanbally on Saturday evening. Ó Murchús had the bare minimum of players on this occasion but what was out there proved too good for Mayfield. Ó Murchús played with the aid of the very strong wind in the first half and were soon into their stride, hitting 2 early goals and adding some points to open up a nice lead. They continued to pile on the scores and had a healthy wind assisted lead at HT, 5-5 to 0-0.


The scoring naturally wasn’t as regular in the second half but Ó Murchús did more then enough to complete the win, adding on 1-3 as against Mayfields 0-1. That’s now two wins from two at the seasons start.

U10 HL V Tracton – 12/4


Shamrocks travelled to Minane Bridge on Friday evening to play Tracton. As always with Tracton, Shamrocks found themselves in a hard played hurling match. Shamrocks stood firm to the challenge and played some super hurling winning on a scoreline of 4-5 to 1-1.

U9 FL V Crosshaven – 11/4


Shamrocks, in their first U9 football game played a very strong Crosshaven team. Up against it they never gave up and you could see improvement as the game went on. Crosshaven were physically much stronger and would have to be one of the top teams at this grade. A tough start for the U9s but great to see Shamrocks lining out at this grade.
