The June 2017 Person of The Month is Mark Coleman.

“I would like to nominate Blarney and Cork GAA star Mark Coleman for a Person of the Month Award. Mark is the first member of the Blarney GAA Club to start a senior championship hurling match for Cork when he played in the first round of the Munster Championship against Tipperary. Many people felt that he deserved a Man of the Match award for his performance that day. However he did receive that award for his performance in the Munster semi final win over Waterford. He is a young lad with a bright future in hurling and no doubt will receive many awards in the years ahead. He has been a star performer for Cork Under Age teams for many years also as well as being the backbone of many Blarney club teams. He was also a key player on the Scoil Mhuire Gan Smal All Ireland Hurling winning team in 2016. He is a real ambassador for his club, his village and his county and is a great role model for our youth.”
