Academy Returns Saturday February 5th

Our boys Academy returned to action on Saturday February 5th at the new time of 10.30am. There was plenty of fun and games from all. The lads were mad keen to get back on the pitch.

The Academy will take place OUTDOORS every Saturday mornings until the end of March as the indoor is unavailable.

Please help us to spread the word among the community and wider afield – all new and existing members are welcome to attend.


Darragh Collins with some U6s and U7s

DÓMs U17 HL V Ballygiblin – 26/2

First hurling game of the league year and Ballygiblin proved far too good. They played with the very strong breeze straight away and were straight into tehir stride and put up 1-15 to 0-2 by halftime. Straight after the restart they buried the sliotar in the back of the Ui Mhurchú net x2 and that was that. The Ui Mhurchú lads battled on gamely until the end in their first match together as a group.

Panel : D. Herlihy, K. May, N. Kearney O’Sullivan, S. Glossop, S. Buckley, B. O’Mahony, S. Murphy, J. Bartlett, R. Sisk, M. Morrissey, J. Glossop, C. O’Donovan, B. Lucey, R. Barrett, F. Mansfield, S. Foy

U15 FL V Sliabh Rua 1 – 6/3

Sliabh Rua 1 6-9 V Shamrocks 0-9

Shamrocks played their first underage match of the season on Sunday when they travelled to play Sliabh Rua in Riverstick.

Shamrocks played against the strong wind in the first half and found scores hard to come by. Shamrocks had a very young team out with a lot of the U13 team playing. The age difference started to show as Sliabh Rua started to take control. Only for the excellent Donal Herlihy in goal the score line would have been a lot greater than it was.

With the wind at our backs in the second half, Shamrocks kicked over some fine points from play. To their credit, the lads never gave up and kept going to the end.

We would like to thank the parents who travelled with us and especially all the U13s who played and done themselves proud. Without them we wouldn’t be able to field a team at this age

Return of the Indoor Academy – 11/3

The Academy returned indoors for the first time in 2 years on Friday night. The NMCI was in splendid condition and great fun was had by all the lads. Remember, we will be here for another month using their indoor hall – what more do you want to be doing of a Friday night.

On another note – Congrats to Clubman Colin Brady, one of our U7 coaches, who was given a pass on Friday night to attend his own wedding! We wish Colin many years of happy married life!

This was a great game of football between 2 committed teams. Kinsale led at HT but a great second half by the Ó Murchús lads nearly resulted in a victiry for the away team. Despite the result, training and set up has been going well and wins are around the corner

Defibrillator Training – 26/3

Our thanks to Peter McDaid of Cork City Red Cross for facilitating our CFRC defibrillator courses in the clubhouse on Saturday morning and afternoon. We had 15 members between the underage and ladies football club taking part over 2 courses. Also thanks to John Twomey main organiser and to all the participants who got great value from the course which was well run and organised and sets up Shamrocks members well for any unforseen hazards ahead.

U15 FL V Aghabullogue – 6/4

Shamrocks 6-14, Aghabullogie 0-5

Shamrocks travelled to Coachford to take on the locals in the u15 football league. Conditions were testing for both teams with a very strong wind and heavy showers the order of the evening.


Shamrocks played with the wind in the first half and kicked over some fine points from play and frees. A goal just before half time left them leading 1-08 to 0-01. Against the wind in the second half, Shamrocks moved their half backs more into defence and this proved successful as we broke up the Aghabullogue play and soon had 1-02 on scoreboard. A great defensive display kept their opponents at bay and Shamrocks added two more goals late on. A great team display overall.


Team – Aaron Connolly, Billy Hanna, Liam Dorney, Seamus O Mahony, Ryan Barrett, Barry O’Mahony, Calum O’Neill, David Herlihy, Jason O’Driscoll, Luke Jordan, Cian Lynch, Donal Herlihy, Jack O’Sullivan-Kearney, Shane O Flynn, Calum Fitzgerald, James Keane.

The Club were saddened to learn of the untimely passing of our long serving President.

U15 HL V Owen Gaels – 14/4

Owen Gaels 2-8, Shamrocks 0-7

Shamrocks made to long journey to Ahiohill on Thursday to take on the combined teams of Ballinascarty and St. Oliver Plunketts. In atrocious wet conditions both teams struggled to put scores on the board.


At half time our very young team were trailing 2-05 to 0-03 after playing into the wind and rain. We regrouped and played some lovely hurling in the second half and put over some lovely points to eat away at Owen Gaels lead. Two late points by the home team sealed their victory 2-08 to 0-07.


Team. Calum Fitzgerald, Seamus O Mahony, Liam Dorney, Ryan Barrett, Barry O’Mahony, Donal Herlihy, Calum O’Neill, David Herlihy, Shane O Flynn, Cian Lynch, Aaron Coleman, Sean Og Lynch, Billy Hanna, Jack O’Sullivan-Kearney and Simon Leppert.
