MOUNTSHANNON CELTIC FC was formed in July 1990 following a meeting of interested people, in Paddy Bugler's Bar, Mountshannon.  Mike Nash and Liam Waterstone undertook the work in the formation of the club.  Indeed without the generosity of the latter Mountshannon Celtic would not exist today.  A senior team was entered in the third division of the Clare and District Soccer League and won their first game beating Corofin 2-1 in Mountshannon.  Since that time the senior team has moved up the divisions and now plays in the premiership competing with all the top teams in the county.

In the first season an under 14 team was organised and competed equally with teams from all over Clare.  Over the years many Mountshannon players have been selected for the Clare Schoolboys Soccer League panel with the following representing Clare at inter county level:  Michael and Patrick Moroney, Barry O'Halloran, Jason Horan, Paul Dooley, Colm Madden, Stephen McGuire, Tomas MacNamara, Robert Slater, Manus McGuire, Cillin MacNamara, Paul O’Rourke, Eoin Quirke, Eoin MacMahon, and Samuel Slater. The club draws on membership from Whitegate, Mountshannon, Scariff, Tuamgraney, Bodyke, Feakle and Ogonelloe

The club has achieved notable success at underage level

1991-92 U14 cup winners
1992-93 U14 cup runners up
1993-94 U15 cup winners
1994-95 U16 cup runners up
2005-06 U11 Division 3 winners

This success can be attributed to the hard work of people like Liam Waterstone and Liam Glass who have successfully coached and nurtured the underage teams over the years with many players now playing for the Senior team and a number having been offered trials for English clubs.  Due to other commitments, Liam and Liam have now passed the running of the underage section over to Clive Slater and Gary Dear.  As a result of hard work by a number of committed parents, a large schoolboy and schoolgirl section has been constituted.  This has seen an increase in child participation in the club so that there are now approximately 100 children in 4 squads.  At times this has proved very tough going, particularly against some of the larger Ennis clubs, but the players continue to improve all the time and in 2005-2006 the club achieved it’s first schoolboy league title.

The club has always had a membership policy encouraging involvement and enthusiasm above ability.

Anyone interested in joining should contact the relevant team manager.
