BLACKROCK GAA CLUB NOTES
It has been a hectic week of matches and a week of draws. On Saturday 1st August we played Garryspillane in the Senior hurling Championship and a fine performance resulted in a draw, with what appeared to be a perfect point waved wide. We were winning all the way through and were unlucky that we ended up with a draw. We now have to wait for the Garryspillane v Ballybrown match to see how we progress.
