Durrow resident and Kilmallock native Comdt David O’Shaughnessy will have his mind firmly focused on Croke Park on Tuesday 17th March as his former club mates contest the All Ireland Club Final. The Harps stalwart is currently stationed overseas in UNIFIL in South Lebanon with the Irish Defence Forces and will be hoping that all the modern media technology will enable him to see the match.
Married to local Durrow woman Gemma and living in Durrow for over 8 years, he has spread the gospel of Kilmallock hurling to a multinational environment with troops from Italy, Republic of Korea, France, Ghana, Serbia and Malaysia. All are rooting for the Limerick and Munster Champions in the big final on St Patrick’s Day.
The manager of the Harps Junior B County champions, has even spotted some hurling talent, notably scoring forwards, amongst the various nations. His younger brother, former All Star and Limerick senior hurler Andrew O’Shaughnessy will be togged out on St Patrick’s Day and hopes to bring the Tommy Moore cup home via Durrow on the night of the 17 th.
