Club Notes: 13th May 2019
Shamrocks GAA Club Notes ( Kindly sponsored by Allen Engineering & Agri Sales Ltd)JHC, Shamrocks 2-11, Melleray 2-14.Shamrocks Junior hurlers lost their second championship match in 2 weeks when a late goal proved the winning score for Melleray at JFK Park in Knockanore last Saturday. Trailing 1-5 to 0-3 at half time, Shamrocks improved in the second half, with goals from Jamie Murphy and Keegan O’ Farrell, and looked like they would get at least a draw, but that late goal made sure the points went to the monastery men. So after two matches, we still have no points, and though the effort was good, we need to improve if we are to have any chance of progressing. However, the game was marred by a serious injury to Bernie Kelleher who seriously tore his hamstring muscle, and looks like he could be out for the rest of the season. He will be a serious loss to both the Junior hurlers and the football team, and we wish him a speedy recovery.

Junior Football.Our third round Junior football match against Affane takes place this Saturday 17th May in Cappoquin at 3pm, which is a change from the Friday night. We have had good results from our first two matches, so let’s hope they can keep up the good start. Come along and give them some support.
Deise go down to the Banner.Last year only one team managed a win away from home in the new round robin series of matches in the Munster Championship. That team was Clare, and last Sunday in Walsh Park, they did it again, with a narrow one point win over a misfiring Deise team. An early goal from John Conlon proved the difference for most of the game, with Waterford unable to claw back that lead, but to be truthful, Clare were the hungrier team until the last few minutes when the Deise finally rose from their slumbers and were the game to go on a bit longer, they could have even snatched a draw which they wouldn’t have deserved. They now have the unenviable task of going to Thurles next Sunday to take on a rejuvenated Tipperary who easily disposed of Cork in Pairc Ui Chaoimh. It looks like a tall order, but Waterford have defied the odds before…..
Congrats Brideview.We would like to congratulate local dramatic club Brideview Drama Club who put on a great performance in the All Ireland Open Drama finals in Athlone recently which earned them 3rd place in only their second ever appearance in the blue riband event of Amateur Drama in Ireland. Having placed 2nd last year in only their first ever appearance, that is impressive stuff. There was a Kilwatermoy presence there with Liam Roche and Connor Goulding on the stage, and Tomas Roche pulling the strings from the sidelines, all three who wore the Shamrocks colours. Well done to all in the group.
