Simonstown Gaels v Skryne   iarbheo


The earliest mention of a football team in the parish of Skryne relates to a twenty-one-a-side team known as The Kilanna Shamrocks, centred on Grange and functioning around 1900 but unfortunately no record exists of any of the games played by this team. Players mentioned were Dick and Tom Corcoran of Trevitt, Jack Dillon of Oberstown and brothers Paddy, Peter and Mick O’Bnen of Marshalistown. The latter was grandfather of Paddy and Miceal of ‘49/’54 fame. Around 1906/’07 a Skryne team reached the final of a tournament in Mullafin v. Ardcath. A great footballer named Jack McCarthy, together with the late Dan Killeen of The Naul and Jack Hand (father of Tommy, Ja and Christo) were on the Ardcath team that day. This was practically the same Skryne team as in photograph taken in 1910 . They wore green jerseys with a gold diagonal sash similar to the jerseys worn by Meath county teams up to the thirties. The greatest achievement by this team was to reach the Meath Junior Foot- ball Championship final in 1912 in which they were beaten by Carnaross. This entitled Carnaross to select the county team with four players from the rest of the county. Paddy Callaghan was the only Skryne player chosen and he thus became the first player from the club to play on a Meath football selection. For the record Meath beat Louth and then Westmeath but lost by 1 point to Carlow in the final of the 1913 Leinster J.F.C. The Great War of l914-’18 and the Troubles in Ireland in the ‘twenties left a void which was filled when a team was formed in Oberstown in 1922 by Paddy Dolan, Mickey O’Brien and Christie McBride. Players included Ben Smith (captain); T. Halligan, P. Halligan, Jim Tancred, Martin Dolan, Bill Logan, Bob Douglas, and Johnnie O’Brien. There is a suggestion that their colours were black. and amber (Kilkenny style).

This team only existed for two years. On one occasion in 1922 the Oberstown team was rounded up by the Black and Tans while practising. They were all brought down to Oberstown Crossroads and made to wipe out an “Up the I.R.A.” sign which had been daubed on Charles’s wall and instead paint in its place: “God save the King”. Bill Logan and Martin Dolan were taken to Dunshaughlin Barracks that evening but were not detained. In or about 1926/’27 Paddy Callagahan was instrumental in reforming the Skryne team with the assistance of Martin Moore who was then a steward in Corbalton and Brian Smith who had arrived in Skryne as a National Teacher.
