The Race Night at the Shamrock Inn, Knockanore is finally upon us, and goes ahead this Saturday night 2nd March. This is essentially a fund raising effort to raise much needed funds for the club, and we will also be making a donation to the Mercy Hospital Cancer Appeal. We will be presenting the Western Football medals to the players first of all at around 8.30pm, and the Races will begin around 9 pm. Along with Tote betting which will be available on the night, there will be an auction / novelty race, a draw on the race programmes, and there will be a special prize for the Best Dressed Man and Best Dressed Woman on offer also, so get out your glad rags, it could be worth your while! Counciller James Tobin will be the MC on the night, and he has plenty of experience doing these events, so a great night is assured. Saturday night, 2nd March at the Shamrock Inn, all are welcome.
UCC win the Fitzgibbon Cup.
Congratulations to Colm Roche who added another medal to his collection when he lined out at wing forward for the victorious UCC team who beat Mary I in the final, contributing 3 points in the process. Well done Colm.
The club would like to congratulate two parishoners who were married last Friday. Popular club player Cathal Herlihy had a large representation of Shamrocks players at his wedding to the lovely Amy in co.Meath, and we wish them all the best in their new life together. Also to tie the knot was Elaine Baldwin, Coolbeggan, who walked down the aisle with John. Congratulations to you both from all in the club.
Deise lose narrowly in Dublin.
Waterford got their first real test against Dublin in Parnell Park last Sunday, and despite fighting back to be within a score of the hosts, were unlucky not to convert a last minute penalty which would have given them a one point win. While scoring a very respectable 4-15, unfortunately scores were being conceded far too easily at the other end, and I’m sure Tadhg de Burca will shore up a lot of that when he returns. Another big test in the form of Galway still awaits, perhaps home advantage will have a bearing.
