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.

U10 FL V Crosshaven – 6/4


Shamrocks U10s got there football season underway in Camden this evening. Playing against a stiff breeze in the first half Shamrocks started the better of the two teams playing some very good direct football. With a comfortable lead built up it the bench was emptied early allowing the younger players, just up from U8 to play in their first structured game. Crosshaven came back strong in the second half taking the lead 2-4 to 2-3. However Shamrocks turned it up a notch kicking 5 unanswered points to finish off the game in style, winning on a scorleine of 2-9 to 2-4.


U10 FL V Crosshaven, 6/4/19

U16 HL V Cobh 2 – 6/4


Diarmuid Ó Murchús 7-9, Cobh (2) 7-8


This was a fabulous game of hurling played in Cobh on Saturday evening last. It featured 14 goals and many twists and turns along the way. A draw probably would have been a fair scoreline with so many scores. 


Cobh second team were fast out of the blocks and their corner forward had a hatrick in the first 20 minutes. At this juncture, it looked like O’Murchús would get a tanking but they kept themselves in it with a few scores of their own. At halftime, Cobh led 6-5 to 3-5. 


O’Murchús made a great start to the second half and had the 9 point deficit clawed back withion 10 minutes with 3 quick goals and they went ahead by 4. It was a complete turnaround and teir tails were up Cobh got in for another goal to leave a point between the teams but O’Murchús held on for a moral boosting one point win. While it was a great team effort, special mention go to Philip Dorney and Conor Finn who both scored hatricks.



Panel: Joe Glossop, Killian Twomey, Cian Herlihy, Christian Byrne, Patrick Cotter, Adam Power, Conor Finn, Liam Cotter, Eoghan Murphy, Zack Burke (all Crosshaven), Fionn Herlihy, Harry Andrews, Tim Sheehan, Mark Sisk, Philip Dorney and Eoin O’Flynn (all Shamrocks)

U10 HL V Ballygarvan – 3/4



Shamrocks and Ballygarvan played out an enjoyable game in Shanbally on Wednesday evening. Shamrocks won in the end but what was important was that every player played and played their part. Numbers are decent in this age group so lets keep the hurling going.

U12 FL V Tracton – 1/4


Shamrocks 3-7, Tracton 0-8


The U12 footballers opened the season with a win over the visitors Tracton in Shanbally on Monday evening. This was a tough, close fought encounter with the obvious difference being the ability of the Shamrocks forwards to score goals. Shamrocks led 1-4 to 0-3 at HT. The Shamrocks backs and goalkeeper were outstanding especially in the second half when Tracton were all out for a goal but the wall couldn’t be breached. Shamrocks held on for a deserved win.
