Memory lane, 1947 -1958 The club was back in business again in 1947 where they competed at intermediate grade. The team rise to fame was rapid and in 1950 they created a further piece of history for Asdee by bringing the first intermediate title to the village by defeating Listowel in the final.

The team was: Batty Whyte, Johnny Culhane, Michael Deenihan, Timmy Carr, Eddie Walsh, Patrick Carmody, Jack Flavin, Tommy O’Neill, Patsy O’Carroll, Tom Sheehy, John Ryan, Tom Hennessy, Der Mulvihill, Tommy O’Connor and Fonty Stack. Patrick Carmody sustained an injury during the game and was replaced by Johnny Whyte.

In the mid-50s Asdee again produced some great teams and they had a great run in 1955 but were defeated by Moyvane in the final. However, the team hit the victory train again in 1956 when they defeated Tarbert at the Shannonside village in a memorable final.

The team was: Joe Murphy, Mossie O’Carroll, Ned Joe Lyons, Timmy Carr, Tony Stack, Mikie Whyte, Johnny Whyte, Tom Keane, Pat Moriarty, Brendan Boyle, Conor Finucane, Tom Fitzgerald, Tom Sheehy, Tommy O’Connor, Neilie O’Mahony. Fonty Stack missed the final.

1958 marked the last year of Asdee as an intermediate team as they decided to go senior. Even though no honours were achieved they turned in many fine performances.
