All the best pics as Blackrock open their 3 in-a-row Schools Cup bid with rout of Terenure

The 2015 Leinster Schools Senior Cup kicked off today in Donnybrook.

BLACKROCK EASED TO a 39-11 win over their arch-rivals Terenure at Donnybrook today as Peter Smyth’s side got their Leinster Schools Senior Cup campaign off to the perfect start.

Blackrock have won the last two tournaments and are second-favourites this year, with St Michael’s the only side with shorter odds to win it all.

As always, there was a lot of skill and passion on display at today’s game and here are some pictures that captured the occasion.
