What the Club Means To Me - Stephen O'Brien
Like many others my first involvement playing with the club began with the parish leagues and the very successful Monacnappa side of the early 90’s. And well over 20 years later I’m still playing and involved with the club. The club continues to provide a wonderful opportunity to the youth of the village in promoting our games, there is fantastic work being put in from club beag level right up to our premier intermediate hurling and Junior A football teams.
There are some fantastic people volunteering their time to help run the club and it’s very heartening to see such great numbers training our future stars on Saturday mornings, manning the gates for our very important car boot sales and stuck in the board room dissecting every day issues during our committee meetings! It is very easy to help out when there are so many others doing the same.
It’s great to see the club continuously progressing and making development plans to cater for our future needs, our club gym is a fantastic facility and it is hoped that our all weather pitch will be built during 2016 and this will ensure that there are training facilities available for all teams, all year long.
Blarney GAA is where my closest friendships have been formed and is like a second home to me. It plays a huge role in my life where I hope to be involved for many years to come.
