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.


Panel – Josh Bartlett, Fionn Herlihy, Barry O’Mahony, Sam Foy, Declan Carroll, Kieran May, John Coleman, Aidan Brady, Robert Barrett, Derry Howard, Aaron Clarke, Conor Coleman, Michael Foy, Cian Lynch, Cathal O’Donovan.



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.


Team on duty: Liam Dorney, Luke Jordan, Billy Hanna, Harry O’Leary, Seán Óg Lynch, Callum O’Neill, Jason O’Driscoll, Ryan Doolin, Calum Fitzgerald, James Keane, Shane O’Flynn, Seamus O’Mahony, Ollie O’Brien, Donal Herlihy, Ronan Crotty.

U12 HL V Kinsale – 12/4


Shamrocks 6-7, Kinsale 2-1

We played our first hurling game of the season at home to Kinsale on a very heavy pitch after all the bad weather that we have encountered. Both teams were evenly matched throughout this contest but Shamrocks ability to get the scores at vital times proved to be the difference in the end. Kinsale started well and got a goal after 10 minutes of play to leave us playing catch up. Some fine performances were on show on both teams. We settled down at last and scored 4 unanswered points before the break to leave us leading by a point at half time. 


Shamrocks were now playing with the breeze at our backs in the second half and the long balls into the Kinsale area was proving to be fruitful as they converted their possession into scores. They also got some lovely long distance points from play. At the end Kinsale try as they may found our keeper inspired and also hit the woodwork on two occasions. It was a great start to the hurling season and we now face another two games away in the coming week against Passage and Brian Dillons.

U14 HL V St Vincents – 12/4


St Vincents 6-9, Shamrocks 3-10


Shamrocks welcomed St Vincent’s to Shanbally for the first league game of the season. A physically stronger St Vincent’s held the upper hand throughout. Nevertheless, Shamrocks kept going all through the game and made sure that our visitors earned their victory.


A number of younger lads made themselves available and acquitted themselves very well. Once we have all our lads available, we should be more competitive. Thank you to all for coming to support.

U10 Hurling Blitz – 7/4


The under 10’s faced stiff opposition in Tracton and Granagh on what was a great day for hurling in Minane Bridge on Saturday. Even though they where overshadowed by a slightly stronger Tracton team they went on to score a comprehensive victory over Grenagh. It was a great team performance but we have to mention a certain Raffeen corner forward who scored 4 goals. Well done to all.

U16 FL V Passage – 3/4


Passage 3-6, Shamrocks 2-5


Passage took the league points on offer on Tuesday evening. Shamrocks were short players on the night due to various events but the players on duty played some great football at times and can be proud of their efforts. Some players made impressive contributions on a pitch that was in good condition considering all the recent rain.

U12 FL V St Vincents – 28/3


Shamrocks 4-9, St Vincents 1-5

The U12s played their first game of the season in Shanbally against St. Vincents. A lot of training was had over the winter months in the National Maritime College of Ireland with this age group. The lads started well and soon found the range as some nice points were scored from play. A goal midway through the half was followed by another just before half time leaving us ahead on a scoreline of 2-03 to 0-03 at half time. We started to play the better football in the second half and scored another 2-03 before St. Vincents got the final few scores to leave us victorious on a scoreline of 4-06 to 1-05 at the final whistle. It’s great to see a large turnout of both players and parents on the night. Next up it’s away to Whites Cross next Tuesday 3rd April at 6.45pm.
