Balincollig 0 Blarney 1

A hard fought victory against a very physical Balincollig team. Key to the success was Blarneys very resilient back line with Cian in goal Jack, Oisin,Joe and Cathal keeping 6 clean sheets out of 8 games.
Cameron Lynch with a great goal, just reward for his tireless efforts up front.
Every player giave 100% for the whole game. Well done lads.

Supervalu Game of the week U12A v Carrigtwohill

Last Sunday the lads played very we’ll and were unfortunate to go down 4-2 at home.
Blarney started the game well and were unlucky when there was a up between the defender and keeper which resulted in an early goal for Carrigtwohill which was well finished by striker. Blarneys Utd’s Conor White and Robert Kelly kept dominating midfield and kept the pressure on there defence with Matthew O Sullivan unlucky not to equalise after 20 mins. Blarney found themselves 2 down but kept pressing for a goal , leaving themselves opened at the back in the second half and conceded a soft third goal.
To be fair to Blarney their heads didn’t drop with Chris McGrath and Sean Og keeping the pressure on and this pressure resulted in a penalty created and converted by Chris.
Spurred on by the goal Blarney continued to dominate possession and kept creating chance after chance with Domnhall  Walsh scoring to make it 3-2 to Carrigtwohill
Blarney continued to press for the equalise but finally conceded a fourth goal at the end to Carrigtwohill.
Overall well done another brilliant performance with the team going in the right direction….

Blarney United 1-2 Rockmount – Intermediate Cup 2nd Round

Blarney United 1-2 Rockmount
A. Weldon
Disappointing result for the Senior team tonight in front of a big crowd at O Shea Park.
This game was all about the second half with the game 0-0 at half time.
A frustrating second half as Blarney dominated a lot of the possession, but couldn’t find an equalizer, after Rockmount took the lead at 2-1.
With 20 minuets remaining Blarney pushed for the equalizer and had plenty of chances, but couldn’t break down the Rockmount defense.

Thanks for all the support tonight 👏

Blarney 16A’s back on track

Blarney visited Carrigaline today and came out with a win. Blarney took control from the start with a goal from Ronan McDonagh. Goals from Jacob Kelliher, Isaac Herlihy, Adrian Morley and Michael Carey put the tie beyond a resilient carrigaline. Good performance by the whole squad,
