Deag Ahearne Cup.
The Deag Ahearne Cup is a trophy the Shamrocks play for around the start of the year, and this year we took on local Intermediate Hurling rivals Cappoquin for the Cup in Knockanore last Saturday 16th March. Despite some early rain, the day turned out reasonable enough, and the game itself was a close one all the ways through, with Cappoquin emerging winners by a point. The Ahearne family presented the cup to the winning captain after the game. We would like to thank the Cornerstone club for coming to play, and we hope they will bring the cup back next year to defend it.

Well Done Rachel.
We would like to congratulate Shamrocks Ladies Football player Rachel Roche on being the first club player to play for the Waterford Minor Football ladies team recently against Cork in the Championship. Although they were defeated by the Reblettes, Rachel held her own, and justified her selection. We also have Catherine Hynes and Aobhla Motherway involved with the Deise U-16 team currently, so well done to all the girls, and keep up the good work!
Deise Clobber Clare!
It has been something of a rarity in recent years to beat Clare in Hurling, so last Saturday’s 14 point hammering of the Banner was very much a tonic ahead of the League semi final next Sunday in Nowlan Park. Well done also to club man Colm Roche who got on the scoresheet, and played the full 70 minutes last Saturday. 31 points, and not a sweeper in sight! Pauric Fanning seems to have them playing with a confidence that was very lacking last year. This semi final should give us a better picture of where they’re at, and they will certainly not underestimate Galway. ‘Hon the Deise’
