Club

Shanahan has played with his club, Lismore since a young age. Shandy presently plays in the half forward line for the club and is the club primary free taker and is well known for his unbelievable accuracy and towering height of 6 foot five inches. Lismore reached the county final in 2009 after Shandy playing a huge part in getting there. They drew and then narrowly lost the replay by a point. Maurice was the clubs top this year.

Inter-county

Shanahan made his Senior Inter-county debut for Waterford against Tipperary GAA in the first round of the 2009 National Hurling League.[1] 2009 continued to be a successful year for the young man considered to be one of the hottest young properties in inter-county hurling as he made his championship debut coming off the bench against Tipperary in the Munster final on July 12 making his immediate impact on the game by almost scoring a fantastic goal although missing the opportunity at a crucial time. Maurice Shanahan is thought to be Waterfords brightest, upcoming star after his brilliant performance at under 21. Shanahans tenacity and temperament have lead critics comparing the young man to his brother Dan.
