Legends Series - James Blaney

Currently Living: Rathfarnham

Years playing with TCRFC: 1987/88 till 1998/99

Position: Fullback

Most Memorable Game:
AIL match versus Lansdowne in 1997 I played most of at 10, last game of the year on a beautiful spring day, one of my fondest memories on a pitch.

Greatest TCRFC Memory:
Changing room after matches or bus journeys back from AIL matches, being the 90’s there was plenty of fun on the bus on the way home.

Favourite Teammate:
Like most before me, there’s plenty. Brendan Clarke, Paul Hennebry, Niall Hogan, Peter Walsh, Girvan Dempsey, Shane Cullen, Derek Hegarty, James Blaney, Joe Kelly, Mikey Smith, Ronan Browne and pretty much everyone else I played with in the club.

Most Annoying Teammate
The two lads (they know who they are) who roomed together the night before away matches so they could “hydrate” in their own unique way.

Best player played with:
Again too many to pick just one, Hebser, Hogie, Girvan, James Blaney and my brother Brendan.

Current Occupation:
Pharmaceutical Representative with Pinewood Healthcare.
