Blackrock Medal Presentation



Our club has had a lot of success in recent years for example in 2010 Blackrock won the All Ireland Junior A championship. Unfortunately since we have gone up to intermediate standard hurling  we are finding it hard to be more successful and we haven’t won anything in quite some time now. Although the Intermediate are’nt winning as much as we have hoped to our Junior B team has taking control of the south. We have being the best team in south Limerick for the last 4 years winning 4 south medals and coming close to winning county finals but just falling short at the last hurdle. It had being so long since we had won our medals and we had’nt got them yet. The club organized a night out for the Junior B team where we got our medals and we had good banter. They had food for us on the night. Local and Limerick Hurler Richie McCarthy handed out the medals to everyone who was involved and all in all it was a very good night.  The night was organized very well as a lot of the locals from the town came up to talk to the players and the managers and everyone bonded together and joined in with singing and have the laugh. Hopefully we can be as successful this year.
