Club Notes: 9th September 2019
Shamrocks GAA Club Notes (Kindly sponsored by Allen Engineering & Agri Sales Ltd).
After seeing the jackpot won last weekend, this week’s winning numbers were 1-7-14-23, and there was no winner. €20 winners were Dan Walsh, John A. Kelly, John Walsh, Aisling & Ger Brennan, Mary Tobin. Next week’s jackpot will be €1,650.
This weekend it’s the turn of our football team to play a quarter final as we take on Old Parish on Saturday 14th September at 3.30pm in Ardmore. When the sides met earlier in the year it was the Gaeltacht side who emerged winners thanks mainly to the 3 goals they scored. We were short quite a few players that evening, but apart from Cathal Herlihy, recovering from an injury, and Colm Roche who faces an operation for an ACL injury, we should have most players back for this knock out tie. This is a championship we are certainly capable of winning, but we will need to be at our best. This Saturday at 3.30pm in Ardmore, please come along and give them some support.
Get well soon Colm.
As I have already mentioned, Colm Roche has a serious ACL operation coming up very soon, and we wish him the best of luck with it. He will be out of action for a long while afterwards, so hopefully he will get over it as soon as possible. Our best wishes Colm, from all in the club.
Well Done Girls!
Well the Shamrocks Ladies Football Club just goes from strength to strength. After representing Waterford in the Feile (U-14) in Roscommon, winning the U-16 county final, now they have added the U-12 B county title to their impressive season. They beat Gaultier with practically the last kick of the game last Sunday to win by the slenderest of margins, a point, and bring the trophy to Knockanore. Well done to all the players and their coaches and mentors on a great job.
The club would like to congratulate club vice treasurer Thomas Baldwin and his wife Deirdre on the birth of a baby boy recently. Congrats Thomas, from all in the club.
Francie Murray RIP.
Shamrocks CLG would like to sympathise with the family and friends of Francie Murray, late of Castlelyons and formerly of Ballyneety, Knockanore, on his recent passing. We especially sympathise with his brother Paddy of Headborough, a stalwart Shamrocks supporter, as indeed all the Murrays were. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
