The death has occurred of our Club President, Venerable Archdeacon Michael O'Brien RIP, better known to a generation of Cork GAA supporters as "the Canon".

Among many other achievements, the Canon steered Cork to two of their most notable All-Ireland hurling victories in 1984 and 1990, and led UCC to eight consecutive Fitzgibbon Cup victories in the 1980s. He led The Rockies to a County Title in 1999 after a 14 year wait. He was President of Blackrock National Hurling Club at the time of his death.

Blackrock National hurling Club extends sympathy to the family and friends of the late Archdeacon, who had suffered from a long illness.

Our Junior A Hurlers had a convincing win over a strong Bishopstown team in the quarter - final of the championship at Ballinlough this evening and now go on to play St. Finbarrs in the
semi-final at a date yet to be fixed. Playing against the wind in the first half, Ryan Dineen soon had us on the scoreboard with a fine point from play. Sean Murphy followed this with a long range point and Ryan Dineen then added his second point. Bishopstown then came back strongly and starting tacking on the points before we scored our goal, which brought us back into the game. Following a mellee close to goal, David O'Shea was on hand to blast the ball to the back of the net. Bishopstown also came close to scoring a goal when they were denied a point blank shot by Paul Delaney. David O'Shea pointed a free and Alan Nolan closed out the first half with a point from play.
