I'd use procmail to process your mail as it comes in.
As an untested guess:
* ^TO_()text at jcorcoran.net
| sed -n 's/^Subject: //p' | o2sms +353number
This should text you the subjects of all mails which have a subject that
are sent/CCed to that address.
This should also be doable via an aliases file.
