Tom Roche R.I.P.
Shamrocks CLG would like to send it’s sympathies to the Roche family, Knocknaraha, on the death of Tom in his 92nd year last Sunday week. Tom was a founder of the Shamrocks back in 1953, and played in goals for their first match. He also wore the blue of Waterford in 1945 at minor level, but injury cut his playing career short at a young age. His sons and now his grandsons have all played for Shamrocks, with Colm winning All Ireland medals at minor and U-21 with Waterford. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.
Ballygunner outmuscled by Ballyhale.
Deise representatives Ballygunner were more than a match for Ballyhale Shamrocks for most of last Saturday’s All Ireland Club semi final in Semple stadium, but the Kilkenny champs got the vital goal that turned the contest in their favour. Pauric Mahony was unerring from placed balls, but the Gunners were getting little return from the other forwards, which, added to some loose shooting all meant their quest for an elusive All Ireland title has to wait at least another year. They do have the consolation of a Munster title, however. Great effort lads.
