      Cricket, in its formative years in Tipperary would not have been a part of life of the ordinary Templemore citizen. It was largely the preserve of the landed gentry, professional men, and the military class. However, the local newspaper evidence from the early 1860s suggests a great growth of cricket clubs around Tipperary, and this was also evident in and around Templemore. Another factor which would have facilitated this growth was the railway network which ran through the county, with clubs at Templemore, Thurles, Dundrum, Cahir, Clonmel, Nenagh, Fethard, Carrick on Suir all being regular participants. But the growth of teams also suggests that there was a great deal of local knowledge about cricket, and its laws, in Tipperary. In Templemore, a local team was established in 1861, they having their pitch in Cloone. Their first outing against the local military ended in defeat, but in the return fixture, a couple of weeks later, they ran out easy victors. The town team on this day, September 1861, was T. Woods; J. Carey; P. Gill; J. Everard; J. Casey; P. Kirwan; J. Clancy; J. O'Raftery; J. Harvey; L. Markly; D. O'Connell. The following year they were playing under the name of the Templemore Shamrock CC. Playing a local derby against Sir John Carden's Priory CC, the town club was victorious.
