BLACKROCK GAA CLUB NOTES
So Croke Park next Sunday. Limerick Senior hurlers take on Waterford in the All Ireland hoping to win the Liam McCarthy cup for the second time in three years. In the strange year that is covid 2020 there will be no supporters and the team, extended panel, management and back room team will have to do it without the loyal and many supporters. We wish them all the very best of luck and will be shouting from our living rooms. The county has turned green and we hope the green will shine bright for the Christmas period as we hope to celebrate safely under the covid guidelines.
On Saturday Limerick u20 hurlers play Cork in the Gaelic Grounds at 4.30, included in the panel are Daithi Heffernan and Jimmy Quilty, best wishes to both players and the team and management.
