Brian Hurley - What the club means to me

"I still remember my first morning playing for Castleowen in the Parish Leagues and the sheer excitement surrounding the day - it was probably on the same level as playing in an adult final for Blarney almost 20 years on!!

Throughout the year the club is a hive of activity and particularly on Saturday mornings during the summer where it’s amazing to see the amount of effort and organisation being put into coaching the young players of the future within the Club Na Nóg structure. It just reinforces the fact that the club is a constant cycle right from the Club na Nóg through to the underage and adult teams, with no one single event in the calendar more important than another.
 
A huge amount of effort has gone into the club so far again this year with some very successful fundraising for the development of facilities while on the pitch results for the both the underage and adult teams have been very positive.

The club continues to attract a huge amount of new members every year and this is a great sign that people who move into the area feel like it’s something they want to be part of. Blarney GAA has been and always will be a very important and enjoyable part of my life."
