The Muckross Hockey Club Hike!

It’s very nearly time for the 2015/2016 season to kick off on the training pitch – so, why not ease back into hockey life with a nice countryside jaunt to stretch the ol’ legs, blast away the off-season cobwebs and catch up with your club-mates!Saturday 15th August is the date for the first social event of the new season, the Muckross Hockey Club Hike – and the plan is a simple one: meet outside Muckross Park at 11:00AM, split up into cars and drive to Glendalough, set off on a three hour scenic trek with a ‘pot-luck’ picnic along the way, and be back in Dublin for 5:00PM.All you’ll need to bring is yourself, a sambo, something delicious to share with the masses, some sturdy shoes, and a raincoat which you HOPEFULLY won’t need… It’s a great opportunity for ALL senior club players, coaches and managers to get together in advance of the new season, and also for anyone new to the club to meet some friendly faces – so, if you have any pals who have been thinking about joining the Muckross Magic, be sure to invite them too! If you’re free that day and fancy coming along, email communications@muckrosshc.com and let us know… if you can include whether you have a car or will need a lift, that would be super helpful too. We look forward to seeing you on the day – the 2015/2016 season starts...

Coaching lineup for 2015/2016 season REVEALED!

Following on from a seminal 2014/2015 season which saw ALL squads finish within the top three of their respective divisions, Muckross Hockey Club is delighted to announce its coaching lineup for 2015/2016. With promotions across the board last season, spearheaded by the First XI’s triumphant return to Division One following a fourteen year absence, Muckross have now made some key appointments to further build on the resurgent successes of recent years. Former IHA Coach of the Year Una McCarthy remains at the helm of the MHC 1st XI after successfully leading the team to a second place finish in Division Two, thus securing outright promotion to Division One. Joining Una will be Sarah ‘Scottie’ Scott, fresh from steering MHC 3rd XI to automatic promotion to Division Six and guiding MHC Junior As to league final victory last season. An Ireland and Leinster U-16s coach with vast top-flight playing experience, Scott will be instrumental in further strengthening Muckross’ impressive track record of identifying and integrating breakthrough talent from its junior section into the top senior teams. Irish international super-striker Peter Caruth resumes his role as coach of MHC 2nd XI – and with back-to-back promotions to their credit, his dynamic squad are now primed to step up to the challenges that Division Three will present. Former MHC 1st XI player-coach Jane Coyne makes a welcome return to the Muckross coaching roster, taking charge of the newly promoted MHC 3rd XI  – a core developmental squad, who are ready to embrace a new era of action in the top half of the Leinster league spectrum. A seasoned stalwart of Muckross Hockey...
