Extract from The Guardian - 13th February 1988
There were scenes of great jubilation in Rearcross last Sunday night, following the local soccer teams win against Shinrone in the Shield Final. The full time score was 4-0 and Rearcross also had two goals disallowed. The scorers were Brendan Deegan(2), Tom Kennedy and Gerry O'Toole. This is the first major Trophy to be won by the mens team from Rearcross, but of course the local ladies soccer team were winning awards 10 years ago.
