About Blarney GAA

Our Club

Blarney has a great and deep rooted hurling tradition, which stretches back over the centuries and endures to the present day.
Although, It is not known exactly when the Blarney GAA club was formed as no records are available for the earlier years but it is generally accepted that Blarney is one of the oldest clubs in the country and that an organised club existed long before the foundation of the GAA.
Blarney was one of the first clubs to join the infant association and an official certificate is in existence which shows the date of affiliation as 1st May 1884, some six months prior to the foundation date.

Today, located adjacent to the world famous Blarney Castle, we have more than 550 members and field teams across all age grades in Hurling, Football and Camogie.

Our facilities include an extensive dressing rooms complex, excellent playing pitches, a floodlit all-weather pitch and a ball alley.
We are extremely proud to have players who are very prominent members of the Cork senior, under 20 and under 16 squads. This achievement is testament not just to the talent of our players but also to the hard work of our coaches and of course the support of the local business community through sponsorship.
