Croom United was founded in 1966.The Club has played in the Desmond League and are now currently in the Limerick District League,Croom United have a very good underage team system in place which has been it’s strength in progressing. In 1997 Croom United won the Second Division of the LDMC captained then by the now current manager Declan Sheerin.A new clubhouse was opened in 2007 and dedicated to the memory of Liam O Donovan founder member and outstanding clubman.This season three under teams won their respective Leagues the A’s ,B’s and the Girls who are managed by Liz Murphy.There are provisions in place for new floodlights and an astro turf pitch ,a club on move to keep up with the times and long may it continue.One should never overlook the people who are involved and who give their time in the running of this and any club,participation in sport is all important in any community and can go a long way in healing the ills that currently manifest in our society.The business communities and the government need to look at this more in their direction of funding so that Clubs continue to exist and expand for better of communities.
