Loughgiel Shamrocks GAC is a Gaelic Athletic Association club located in the town of Loughguile/Loughgiel in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.[1] They are currently the only club in Ulster to have won an All-Ireland Senior Club Hurling Championship, which they first won in 1983.[2] They repeated the feat by defeating Coolderry from Offaly by 4-13 to 0-17 in the All Ireland Club Hurling Final on March 17, 2012. On Sunday 29th September 2013, they achieved their first 4 in a row of Antrim Senior Hurling Championships by beating Cushendall, in the first final to be staged outside Casement Park since 1990.[3][4]
