Colin Murphy - What the club means to me

"Indoor hurling in SMGS Blarney at the age of six or seven, that's where my hurling career began with the club. It was the first time I picked up a hurley and since then I’ve loved every minute with Blarney GAA. Blarney is a small village with fantastic people. You only have to take one step through the gates of Blarney GAA to notice it. The commitment of the people that volunteer for the club is staggering, whether it be the car boot sales, hosting matches, lining the pitches, etc but is very noticeable with the time given to the under age.
 
The time those volunteers put in to train the kids is fantastic. It always has been and I am very grateful to the people who put in the countless hours to train me, while also teaching me the values of teamwork. The club has given me great coaching with the likes of club legends PJ Sheehan, Brian Sheehan, James Coakley, James Hughes and many more teaching me the skills and sharing their passion of the game with me. I think its important senior players in the club try to give back to the club, particularly try to get involved with underage teams, which most players have already done. It is another great thing about our club, people are willing to put back in what the club have given them. Blarney GAA is where I’ve built serious friendship with my closest friends since an early age and all the way up by training & playing together, winning and losing together. I have also picked up many valuable life lessons along the way.
 
Blarney GAA has brought very happy and proud days to me and the people of Blarney. In recent years the likes of 08 and 09 winning the treble and giving the people of Blarney an unforgettable day up in Croke Park which marked an iconic day in our club. Blarney GAA plays a big part in my life and I hope to be involved for many years to come."
