Blackrock Hospital

The team was based in the Soldiers & Sailors Hospital on Carysfort Avenue in Blackrock which catered for injured soldiers coming back from the Great War.

They entered a team in the AUL League in 1921 and continued until the 1930’s. Teams were made up of Doctors and staff of the hospital and had many fine players who went on to greater things. For example: Vance from Bray, Ellard from DunLeary, Quinn, O’Neill, Frazer, Simpson, Byrne, Cannon, Doc Wheeler, Roving, Kavanagh, Jack Phoenix, Byrne, Hughes, Dempsey, Flynn, Patton, Kinch, Thompson.
