First half was largely uneventful. Blarney to their credit pushed hard for the opener and nearly got it after 20 minutes when Stephen Looney hit the crossbar with a powerful header. Stephen Looney had the Carrigaline team in all sorts of trouble with his pin point corners and free kicks but Blarney failed to capitalize on these in the first half. The second half started brighter with Carrigaline pushing on a bit making the game a bit more exciting. Blarney introduced all 5 subs from the bench and with 20 minutes to go decided to go for all 3 points now playing a formation of 2-3-5. The team duly responded and attacked from every angle. Rob O Riordan had a bullet header cleared off the line and Peter Harte was unlucky when his volley rattled the crossbar. Blarney got their deserved winner when Ronan Buttimer got on the end of an Oliver Keane lob making no mistake from 10 yards out. Thanks for all the support!

Hi Folks please note ALL CSL games on tomorrow SAT OCT 21 have been cancelled due to the impending weather conditions.
Congratulations to Blarney United’s Jack Murray, Darragh Lyons and Ronan O’Keeffe for their inclusion in the Cork Schoolboys U12 squad’
Due to the forecasted bad weather this Saturday – training has been cancelled.
An incredible performance from all involved today ,against the reigning champions our boys went away and won 2-1 after going 1 down half way through the first half, Donnacha Morrissey skills and bravery to get upended in their box and Josh Hudner slotted the pen 1-1 at Ht and again no pats on the back as the job was only half done.they went out in the second half and their willingness to defend and get stuck in was evident to all watching.A brilliant lob over the advancing Hall Gk by Corey Murphy was sublime and it must be also noted that the position change by the management was a great move. Great win but we need to have that same attitude every weeek
Ps great to see Ronan O Brien Off the crutches and we wish him well during his recovery
Also best wishes to Sean Quinlivan as he was admitted to hospital on Friday
