BLACKROCK GAA CLUB NOTES
Last week two of our finest young hurlers played for Limerick. Jimmy Quilty captained the U20’s from mid field on Wednesday night where they lost by 2 points to Cork. It was very close at the end and we look forward to next year when Jimmy will still be U20.
On Tuesday night Killian Ahern was centre forward for the U17’s also v Cork. Cork won this match but our players fought to the end.
Well done to both players and congratulations to their families and themselves. Onto club activities now and best wishes to you both.
