The Shamrock Rovers FC are the most successful and most famous club in Republic of Ireland with over a century of great history and tradition. To this day, Shamrock Rovers FC has provided the most number of players to be capped by the Republic of Ireland international team from any one club. Over the past number of years Shamrock Rovers have being a leading light in Ireland in producing exciting competitive youth teams as exemplified with a highly competitive 0-0 draw with Paraguay international team in 2001 who subsequently went on to win the 2001 Milk Cup 6-0 v Manchester United. Other illustrious opponents have been Maccabi Haifa (3-1), Everton (0-1) Hearts (5-0), Feyenoord (1-3). Most recently the youth team was unlucky to lose to Barcelona 2-1 in 2005 and many of the players have since graduated into the clubs u21/reserves and 1st team. The youth team is currently in mid-season and is in all four domestic competitions.
