BLACKROCK GAA CLUB NOTES
The Premier Intermediate county final V Kildimo Palliskenry ended in a draw 18 points each. Captain Paudie Leahy scored 11 points, Ruairi O’Shaughnessy and Daithi Heffernan scored 2 each and Dave Moloney, Kevin Palmer, and Adrian Cooke scored a point each. We were ahead all through the match with Kildimo finally drawing level in the 3rd minute of injury time. We went down to 14 men in the 48 minute and fought hard to hold on for a draw. The replay will be Saturday the 26th October in the Gaelic Grounds at 6pm. Well done to the team and management on a fine performance, huge credit is due to the 32 man panel and backroom team for the hard work put into to achieve this display.
Our under 8’s, 10’s and 12’s played Kildimo Palliskenry at half time of the county final in the Gaelic Grounds. Proud to say we won all the matches and what a great venue for our small boys and girls to be playing in. well done to Bord Na nOg for the fine turnout.
Many thanks to our sponsors and everyone who wished us well personally or through the features in the papers. Thanks to Pat Moloney, John Mortell and Tom Murphy who have been photographing our teams and events throughout the year. It is lovely to have the memories.
A huge thanks to all our fantastic supporters at the final on Sunday and throughout the year. The noise and colour was amazing, adding to the atmosphere at the match. Thanks to Niamh O’Shaughnessy for the suggestion to pick a section for our Supporters to sit and create this atmosphere, colour and noise. So again the next day we are saying section 107 or thereabouts (may change on the day if the section is full, will keep ye updated on facebook). Bring the colour and the noise.
The minors play the South Semifinal on October the 7th against Cnoc Dubh Gaels. Hopefully by the time ye read this we will be in the South final V Coshlea Gaels on Saturday 12th October.
