Blackrock - Cork: Proud Soccer Heritage


Blackrock, Cork, has a huge soccer tradition dating back to the early 20th century when the Ford Motor Plant set up a huge car and tractor assembly manufacturing business on Cork's Centre Park Road, on the famed Marina, in Blackrock territory. 


Michael Casey, a well known Cork soccer stats man and Derry JF Doody, are currently working with a small team researching and producing an ONLINE documentary outlining the history of soccer in Blackrock and districts from 1900 right up to 2017. Current clubs in the Blackrock region are Avondale United and Ringmahon Rangers. However several clubs came and went in the Blackrock area over the last century and the region is renowned for producing many of Cork's greatest soccer players.


A timeline for final production will be announced shortly. Watch this space.
