Geraldine’s Kitchen

 

Recently the Shamrock Underage Club organised their annual charity walk and coupled with event was an opportunity to honour the late Geraldine Twomey, a lady who had done our Club some great service over the years.

 

A large gathering was present to witness the tribute which the Club had prepared for Geraldine.

 

She did so much work in the area of fund-raising and of course she was ever present in the Club’s kitchen for all events. Whether it was the Clubs Saturday morning under age Academy or games and training sessions Geraldine’s hospitality always prevailed. The kettle was always on and Members, Parents and Visitors were assured of a hot cup and a bite to eat. Her Kitchen always had a happy and pleasant environment. But of course, the children too were sure to give her a call, as Geraldine kept a well stocked jar of lollipops under the counter. Their eyes lit up when the jar was removed from seclusion.

 

Geraldine’s untimely passing almost twelve months ago left us all devastated, but she left a rich legacy and our Club is in a better place because of Geraldine’s generosity of time and commitment.

In a tribute to her, the Club decided to name the refurbished kitchen after her. Going forward it will be known as “Geraldine’s Kitchen”, Surely a place filled with happy memories and optimism going into the future.

 

Club Executive Chairman, Mr. Pat McCarthy made the formal announcement to the large gathering and he paid a glowing tribute to an indispensable lady who in her time made the Club a better place. Joining the gathering too was Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Sean O’Sullivan, who was present to endorse and give his blessing to the noble gesture.

 

It was a very moving and special occasion for her husband John and family and large circle of relatives and friends. Joining John was son Roy, daughter Aileen, Sister Margaret and brother Craig, nephews Owen, Adam and Dayne along with nieces Chelsea and Elana.

 

A huge cheer resounded around the Clubhouse when the door of Geraldine’s Kitchen was swung open only to find the tables laden with food and goodies for the walkers on their return. That is the way Geraldine would have wanted it.

U12 FL Final V Whitescross – 21/10

 

Whitescross 1-7, Shamrocks 1-5

 

Shamrocks just lost out to Whitescross in the league final in Mayfield on Sunday morning. A very strong wind blew right down the pitch making it a game of 2 halves. The first half belonged to Whitescross and they led 1-6 to 1-0 at HT. Shamrocks got a great start to the second half when they scored 3 quick points to reduce the deficit. But they could get the all important points or a goal to move ahead and Whitescross held on. Thanks to the players and management for a great year overall.

U16 HL Semi Final v Castlelyons – 16/10

 

Castlelyons 4-19, Diarmuid Ó Murchús 3-13

 

A cracking game of hurling in Castlelyons on Tuesday night and the Shamrocks/Crosshaven combination played their part. Not only that, but they actually led by a point with 10 minutes left but Castlelyons finished very strong and only asserted themselves in that last 10 minutes to pull away for what has to be said was a flattering 9 point victory. 

 

The first half was even enough with Ó Murchú’s staying in touch with Castlelyons who were tuning up for a county final next Sunday. Castlelyons led 1-6 to 1-5 at HT and it was all to play for in the second half. That second period featured many scores from both sides with every Ó Murchu’s player putting in a great shift, initially to stay in touch with Castlelyons and eventually move into a winning position. But the big Castlelyons players stepped up to the mark in the last 10 minutes to ensure their victory over a gallant Ó Murchú’s team. 

U16 FL Semi final V St Vincents – 13/10

 

St Vincents 5-9, Shamrocks 3-9

 

Yet another close defeat for our 16s, this time in the league semi final in wet Knocknaheeny on Saturday afternoon last. This was the 6th defeat in a row to this Vincents team in both codes stretching back to u14 and this was a game that could have been won. However, the pattern was similar to the championship defeat – play outstanding up until the 50th minute when the opposition take over and score a couple of quick goals to take the stuffing out of a gallant Shamrocks team.

 

Shamrocks started brightly and led 1-4 to 0-1 early on but Vincents came back into it and the game was level at HT, 2-4 apiece. St Vincents appeared to be in command after HT as they pushed on but they had a player dismissed with 157minutes to go. Shamrocks slowly got on top and went 4 points ahead with 9 minutes to go but Vincents upped a gear and the game was won in a 60 second spell when they hit 2 quick goals. The wind was gone from Shamrocks sails and Vincents advanced to the final.

 

Thanks to all the footballers for a great year of progress; we hope to see all u16 players (all bar 2) back at that level in February 2019.

U12 FL Semi V Tracton – 7/10

 

Shamrocks 6-12, Tracton 2-4

 

We played Tracton on Sunday morning in Shanbally in the semi final of the U12 football. Tracton had beaten us already earlier in the competition so we were well aware of the task ahead of us. We stated very strong and had 2-03 on the board before Tracton registered their first score. A quick 1-02 from Tracton had them back in it but again we got some great scores to leave a bit of daylight between the teams but 1-01 from Tracton just at the short whistle had us leading on a score line of 3-05 to 2-03. All the words of encouragement at half time was heeded as we pulled away with some quick fire scores in the first ten minutes of the second period to leave the game over as a contest. The final score being 6-12 to 2-04. All our panel got valuable game time. This was a fantastic team performance and everyone contributed hugely to this game. Now it’s on to the Final against Whitescross next weekend. It was great to see a large crowd of supporters present from both sides.

 

On behalf of the team we would like to wish our captain Sam Foy a very speedy recovery from his recent illness. The jersey is washed and ironed ready for him to put on for the final.

 

Team: Josh Bartlett, Calum Gregson, Nigel O Sullivan/Kearney, Shane O Mahony. Barry O Mahony, Kieran May, Ewan Clarke. Dara McCormack, Evan Browne, Luke Jordan, Cian Lynch, David Herlihy, Cathal O Donovan, Conor Coleman, Evan Twomey, Seamus O Mahony, Shane O Flynn, Donal Herlihy, Zach Johnson, Owen Forde, Harry O Leary.
