U14 HL V Whitescross – 4/6


Whitescross 3-9, Shamrocks 2-3


Shamrocks and Whitescross played out an enjoyable game on Tuesday evening in Shanbally.


The teams were evenly matched for most of the game but Whitescross finished much the stronger to take the win. Whitescross played with the wind in the first half and registyered their first few scores, despite some great saves in the Shamrocks goal from Sam Foy and heroic defending from the full back line.


Into the second half, Whitescross were ahead but an Eoin O’Flynn goal for Shamrocks actually put them ahead for the first time. However, Whitescross scrambled home a goal shortly afterwards and had all the momentum into the last 15 minutes, where they finished with 2-4 without reply to win comfortably enough at the end.

Shamrocks 7-9, Cloughduv 0-1


On Sunday evening, 19th of May, Shamrocks u12 hurlers faced up to  a young bunch of Cloughduv hurlers on what was a fine evening for hurling. The team were delighted to welcome back their captain, Barry O’Mahony,  who had been injured for a number of weeks. Shamrocks opted to play 15 a-side and produced a great performance in all areas of the field. Two goals in the first half from Evan Browne and Barry O’ Mahony ensured that Shamrocks were in the driving seat. Some quality point taking from Luke Jordan, Cian Lynch and Barry O’ Mahony kept the score board ticking over nicely and Shamrocks led by 2-06 to no score at half-time.


Following half-time the second half scoring spree continued as the Shamrocks backs and mid fielders kept delivering quality supply to the forwards. Goals from Dónal Herlihy, Cian lynch, Barry O’Mahony and Luke Jordan making  life very difficult for Cloughduv. However, the did keep on hurling and opened their account mid way through the half with a fine point. To conclude,  it was a fine display from Shamrocks and they now look forward to their final league game in June against Lee Gaels.
