Calling all Rockies & their friends. We will be holding our annual Christmas Party at the club bar on Saturday December 27th. Tickets are available from the club bar at €10 and all proceeds from this fundraiser are guaranteed to be invested in club facilities for 2015. There will be live music, a DJ, finger food and amazing prizes to be won. Last year's party was a sell out and a brilliant night so get your tickets early to avoid disappointment. For those who cannot make it on the night, you can still contribute to the fundraiser by purchasing a ticket. We will provide details of additional ticket agents in the coming days.

Blackrock National Hurling Club are delighted to announce the appointment of Bro Patrick Fitzgibbon as the manager of the Senior Team for 2015. Bro Patrick has an indepth knowledge of the players who have all come through the underage system when he was Chairman for the past 8 years.

The club is most fortunate to have secured the services of Eddie Murphy as coach to the Senior Team. Eddie brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm which will hopefully bring on the talented young players now emerging into the Senior ranks.

Success with the Senior Team will not be achieved without a dedicated support team. The club would ask anyone who has time to assist to contact Bro Patrick.

Alan McGee
Chairman

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.

Funeral arrangments:
Reception Prayers at 8.00pm this evening in St. Mary's Church, Innishannon. Reposing in St. Mary's Church, Innishannon tomorrow (Sunday) from 5.00pm, followed by Rosary at 7.00pm. Concelebrated Requiem Mass at 12 noon on Monday, followed by burial in the adjoining churchyard.
