What the Club Means To Me - Colm Sheehan

"My first memory of playing hurling & football with the club was back in the early eighties, in the parish leagues, where all careers start. To this day, it truly is the heartbeat of the club.

My father Pad Joe introduced me to the club along with my two brothers Padraig & Brendan. There is a strong tradition of GAA in the Sheehan family where my father played hurling & football with Rathpeacon in the 1950s & 1960s and then joined Blarney GAA Club in the late 1960's. My family has been involved in the club since then and have made great friendships over the years through the club.

I really enjoyed my early years at underage. While I learned the skills of hurling & football on the field as a player, the encouragement from my coaches and the teaching of respect & teamwork helped me develop as a person off the field. I had great fun & enjoyment in those years and eventually won my first medal with the club in 1998 at U21 level.

But the club is not just about winning silverware. It is all about enjoyment & taking part, while also making friends for life. We are so fortunate to have great people volunteering their time for club activities both on & off the field.

In the last couple of years I've being playing Junior B hurling and we've had some great success.  There is a great spirit within the squad and it really highlights what Blarney GAA Club is all about. I still get the same buzz playing now as I did when I started all those years ago! I would strongly encourage players to continue playing the game for as long as they can, no matter what the grade. There is no better feeling than wearing the Blarney jersey and lining out with the friends you have made over the years.

This is my second year involved with the club executive and I only now realise the tremendous effort invested at administration level. There is a place for everyone in the club, be that in playing, coaching, assisting for a few hours at our car boot sales or supporting our teams from the bank. Everyone is welcome in what is truly a community club.

I've now come full circle. I am now bringing my own son to Club na nOg with the under 5's every Saturday morning. I hope he gets the same enjoyment from the club, as I have all these years."
