It will be preceded by the Intermediate Hurling Championship Final Blackrock v Ballincollig @ 2.00pm.

After a wait of 5 years we are back in the final, one which all players aspire to play in, hopefully we can maintain our level of performance to date for one more game. Our opposition are very experienced and are the reigning champions. Last Wednesday evening in the Club at the press briefing a huge crowd turned out to wish the players and management well. Many thanks to everyone who helped out on the day and thanks to the Press also for playing their part. We appeal to the people and businesses of the town to get out your Black & White colours in support of this great bunch of young men representing the town. Best of luck lads ........... Magpies Abú

Seán Óg Murphy Cup
A native of Cork city, Sean Og Murphy (1897-1956) played hurling for Blackrock and football for Nils. With Nils he won junior football titles in 1913 and 1914, while with his beloved Blackrock hurling team he won county titles in 1913, 1920, 1924, 1925 and 1927. The last three wins featured Murphy as captain of the side. He won three All-Ireland medals with Cork (1919, 1926 and 1928), along with six Munster medals. Murphy also lined out with Munster in the inter-provincial hurling competition. He first played for his province as captain in the inaugural year of the Railway Cup competition in 1927, however, Leinster were the victors on that occasion. Murphy served as captain again in 1928 and 1929 as he collected two Railway Cup winners' medals. Murphy also served as a selector on various Cork hurling teams over a period of four decades. While still a player he was a selector on the Cork teams that won the All-Ireland title sunder his captaincy in 1926 and 1928. Even though an injury brought his hurling career to an end Murphy served as a selector as Cork won two more All-Ireland titles in 1929 and 1931. He was a key member of the backroom team again as Cork won six more All-Ireland titles in 1941, 1943, 1944, 1952, 1953 and 1954. He served as secretary of Cork County Board from 1929 until his death in 1956, and in 2000 was named as full-back on the Cork Hurling Team of the Century.
