SENIOR CUP QUARTER-FINAL
We commiserate with Captain Hugo Keane (6th Year) and his Squad on this defeat to a resolute Roscrea side.
We are disappointed, maybe even crestfallen for a short while but such is sport. Today is a new day. We move on. We are very proud of our Squad. They gave of their all. We ask for no more.
We congratulate Roscrea and wish them well.
I thank Mr Smyth, Mr Pickering, Mr Lambe, Mr Savage, Mr Moore, Mr Toomey, Karl Curran (Class of 2009), Dr. Ernan Gallagher and Ms Fitzgerald for their preparation and care of the Squad.
I thank Donncha Crowley, Evan Kenny, Finbar Crowley, Ryan E. Murphy, Henry Spillane and their team of Cheerleaders on their organisation of the support for the team in the Stand and back in the Refectory. It is at time of setback that the Blackrock spirit comes to the fore. It did so yesterday. Well done, boys.
I acknowledge the invaluable role that our Games Administrator, Mr Evan O’Brien, Catherine Kilmartin and our catering crew, Gerry Dowse, Phil Ryan and our grounds staff play in our Games programme. Well done and thank you.
