End of Year


The playing season is now at an end. The club would like to thank all the players, parents, mentors, officers and supporters for all their work this year. It was a busy one. While action on the pitch is taking a break, there are a few other regular events to watch out for over the next 2 months including our Annual Christmas Draw, Puc Fada and Adult Club AGM in the new year. There are also some medal presentations to take place, starting this Saturday night with the underage girls medals presentation and the minor presentations in the FBI on December 16th. There will also be Rebekl Óg review meetings in the week of December 12th which Shamrocks will be attending.


2017 promises to be a big year with the long awaited Club Redevelopment going ahead so we need everyone on board for that.








UCC honour Shamrocks Vice President


University College Cork bestowed Alumni Awards recently on some of its distinguished past pupils.


Included in this year’s list was Dr. Richard Palmer late of ‘Inver’, Ringaskiddy and an esteemed Vice President of our Club since 1998. Richard graduated from UCC with a BSc in 1959 and followed up with an MSc in 1961. He was honoured for his outstanding work over the years in the field of Research.


Richard was born in Ringaskiddy and a member of the Palmer family of Palmer’s Island. He played hurling and football with the Club and was a member of the Minor Football team of 1953 that contested the South-East Final. The other members of that team were Ned  Flynn, Donal McDonnell, Sean Jordan, Jim Turner, Ray Sisk, Dof Flynn, Paddy O’Driscoll, Jerh. Coveney, Donal Livesey, Charlie Harte, Jackie O’Driscoll, Billy O’Rourke, Joe O’Driscoll, Danno Pierce, Terry Frizelle and Joe O’Flynn. He was also part of the 1959 Junior Hurling Team that won the South-East Final.


When the Club was researching and preparing material for its History Book which was published in 2002, Richard was most helpful and made a telling contribution. We send our hearty congratulations to a distinguished son of Ringaskiddy on his academic and research accolades.
