L.F.L. 
Awards at Keadeen Hotel
June 7th 1996 and the Shamrocks pictured in the gardens of The Keadeen Hotel in Newbridge at the Leinster Football League Awards with the Treble Trophies and L.F.L. Divisional Manager, Terry Farrell.
The club was also honoured with a Special Merit Award on the night in recognition of their achievements with such a small pool of players and limited resources. It was a defining moment in the club's history.



Winning the Double
The celebrations begin after Shamrocks had clinched the Double by beating Athy side, Bridge United 4-2 after extra time to win the cup having won the championship a week earlier. In one of the best finals ever seen in the counties, the Shamrocks had to dig deep to score two goals in extra-time having surrendered a two goal lead at the death with Bridge united equalising in the 3rd minute of injury time. It went down in history as a Mammoth performance by the Men from the Island.

Party time in Mahons

The beer is flowing and the hordes are in good voice, as the Trophies are brought home to the Island in triumph after a remarkable fortnight of finals which saw the Shamrocks finally fulfill the potential that had promised to deliver so much.



Loyal Supporters at Longford 
Town



The by now familiar tri-colour with the shamrocks loyal band of followers at the Giffney Cup Semi-final in 1998 against Longford United. The Rocks won 1-0 after a tough game to reach the final for the second year in sucession.



Trebly Happy


Colin Shortall and Ray Nolan, exhausted but exhilarated, after beating Cill Beara Rovers 2-0 in the Shield Final on a hot Summer's evening to win the treble on May 25th 1996.

The man with the flag










Noel Duffy (RIP), an ever present follower and committee member who for obvious reasons became known as 'The man with the flag'. Tragically, Noel was to lose his life in a motorbike accident a few weeks after this photograph was taken. The Shamrocks now hold an annual memorial tournament in his honour.


I hope you have enjoyed this trip down memory lane.
