They travelled to Buttevant as the underdogs and Scariff came up short in their bid for provincial glory. They trailed 1-0 at the interval but were unable to find a spark capable of seeing them return home with silverware.
An extra time semi-final sent the East Clare school through to the decider but on the day they were outplayed by a superior Cork school who were full value for their win.
Conor Breen who has shown his ability to mastermind memorable cup runs in the past most notably with Rineanna Rovers was unable on this occasion to guide Scariff to what would have been a historic victory.
Soccer is a relatively new addition to the extra-curricular sports offered in Scariff Community College. The school currently has five team; four boys (Under-14, Under -15, Under-17 and Under-19) and one girls team (Under -14). In 2019 and 2022, the Under-17 boys reached the Munster Final, coming up short on both occasions.
