It was with sadness that we learned of the passing of Seamus Lyons, Bloomfield. Seamus served as a committee member of the club and was a great supporter down through the years. We wish to express our sympathy to his family and friends. Ar Dheis Dé Go raibh a anam. We also express sympathy with Josie Ballantyne and family on the death of her sister Mary Gilmartin, Sligo and the family and relatives of Fr Ignatius Kelly formerly of Riverstown who died in England.
The Shamrock Gaels GAA club was formed on 16th March 1972, when members of the Sooey and Knockalassa clubs came together at a meeting in Riverstown Hall.
Both clubs had a long and proud tradition within the GAA in County Sligo, a tradition that stretched back to the very foundation of the Association. Over these years, Sooey contested six senior county finals, winning the Senior Championship in 1949 and 1959. Knockalassa played in five finals, winning the title in 1915 and 1933.
The seeds of the eventual amalgamation were sown when a Sooey / Knockalassa combination, called St. Joseph's, contested the 1966 Under 16 and Minor county finals. The U16 team lost to Múire Naófa, but the Minors won the county championship, beating Drumcliffe in the final. The two clubs joined forces again in 1969 to contest the Senior Championship, but lost in the first round against Gurteen / Bunninadden.
