Paul O'Leary - What the club means to me

"My first memories of playing hurling and football for Blarney were the parish leagues – which was over 20yrs ago and thankfully I am still playing with and involved in the club. There is a great atmosphere around the club throughout the year as it is the centre of a lot of activities in the village from training & matches to car boot sales.

In the last few years the club has gone from strength to strength with success on the field coupled with major developments off it – most recently the club installed a state of the art gym which has been a major addition to our team’s preparations. Blarney GAA is a big part of my life & my family’s life, and hopefully will continue to do so for many years.

Upcoming Fixtures...
