Shamrocks GAA Club Notes ( Kindly sponsored by Allen Engineering & Agri Sales Ltd.)
Unfortunately I don’t have last week’s lotto results, as the draw was held on Monday night, but next Saturday’s draw will be the Christmas special with lots of extra prizes on offer, so make sure you get your numbers in.
Biddy Morrisson R.I.P.
Shamrocks GAA Club would like to sympathise with the family and friends of Biddy Morrisson, Kilwatermoy, who passed away last Friday in her 97th year. Biddy, a vice president of the Shamrocks, was a firm supporter of the club, and was reputed to have sewn the Shamrock emblem on the first set of jersies for the club. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.
What a wonderful tribute to Shamrocks legend, Waterford legend, Out the Gap legend, and all round good egg Liam Dalton in the Dungarvan Observer recently. Liam played for the Waterford Football team for fourteen years, each one wonderfully detailed in the Observer article. He donned the Shamrocks jersey this year for an incredible 35th year, having made his debut all the way back in 1983. Liam, you’re a true legend, don’t ever stop….
The club would like to sympathise with club stalwart Frankie Corcoran whose mother -in-law Mary Flores recently passed away in her 99th year.
Well the Christmas Stork came early for popular player John Baldwin and his wife Ciara who welcomed twins Tom and Ollie Baldwin into the world recently. Congratulations to you both, from all in the club.
Christmas and New Year Greetings!
It was a year of highs and lows for the club, we won our first Junior Football Western title in 34 years, but lost out narrowly in the county final, drew one and lost two of our Intermediate Hurling matches to go out, won a Western and county title in U-21 football div. 2, lost a minor hurling county final after a replay. I would like to thank all our supporters, sponsors, players, trainers, selectors, officers, lotto and Deise Draw sellers and helpers, committee, and everyone who kept the club going and prospering. I would also like to thank the local news publications who publish our club notes every week, they provide a terrific service, and we owe them our gratitude. I wish one and all a Happy and Peaceful Christmas, and a Wonderful New Year.
