Thanks Eltin. I fixed that.
I am usless at IT but I have a load of photos that Joe Behan and I collected doing the “Green Side Of The Apple” booklet we did for the 50th in 2010…………….the photos are classics and may fit in to a “Memory Lane” section that just gets added to by present Members
In 2001 the first team were going for three Cups in a row, we had battled our way to a third final, opponents were Panciprian Freedom……………..They kept postponing and the CSL did not put the boot in ……………Money Talked……………But it was a great achievment for the squad to make it three finals in a row maybe put on record Opponents Panciprian Freedom…..Final Unplayed
or whatever is PC but they deserve credit for getting there
Well done lads on a fab night and your history in terms of existence and success, I believe is second to none. Long may it continue, Regards Mick, Anne and Warren, Dublin.
Did You play with the Rocks?……….
Want to take this opportunity to congratulate the entire club for such an incredible season. You professional and organization has taken the club to a whole new level. Almost makes me want to get the old boots out. Keep up the great work and as always, Come the Rocks.
Looking under the “History” category I see that your club was founded in 1960.
Perhaps this is more like the “prehistory” but I believe the original name was “The Shamrock Rovers”. And the founder was my brother, John Kenny. John went to work as an engineer for Sperry on Long Island in 1959 after graduating from St Louis University. He told me about the team he started– I don’t recall if there was a co-founder, there may have been. I doubt if they had any historian back then. But they had some great parties! When John would throw a party for the team, his landlord would usually ask him to move aftewards.
I’m very glad the ‘Rocks are thriving and have a number of teams, different levels, and for both sexes.
John died in 2004. We were from Ireland, County Leitrim.
