Sarsfields vs Blackrock

Sarsfields GAA is a hurling club is based in the villages of Riverstown and Glanmire in east County Cork. Founded in 1896, club colours are black, blue and white. The club derives its name for the Irish Jacobite and soldier Patrick Sarsfield, 1st Earl of Lucan.

The club won it's first senior county hurling title in 1951, then followed that up in 1957. They had to wait another half century for their next win. That win, in 2008 was to be the first of five in quick succession as Sarsfields have gone on to be one of the best and most consistent Cork club sides of recent times.

The club has produced many fine hurlers down through the years but perhaps the most famous of these is Teddy McCarthy. He is regarded as one of the most iconic players in the history of Gaelic games.

In an eleven-year senior inter-county playing career, McCarthy played for the Cork senior hurling and football teams, winning major honours with both. He has the unique achievement of winning All-Ireland senior hurling and football medals in a single year. A talented dual player, McCarthy joined the Cork senior football team in 1985. Between then and 1996 he won two All-Ireland medals, six Munster medals and one All-Star. McCarthy's ten-year career with the Cork senior hurlers saw him win two All-Ireland medals, three Munster medals and one National Hurling League medal.
