RIP
 
Former President Murphy passes away
29 April 2007


The GAA is mourning the death of Cork Gael Con Murphy, who served as President of the Association from 1976 to 1979.

A four time All-Ireland winning hurler with the Rebel County, Con Murphy played on the three in a row winning side of 1942, ’43, ’44.

He later moved on to become a referee and took charge of the senior final in 1948 and ’50.

He then moved into administration and took the reigns of the GAA in 1976 and took great pride in officially opening the 50,000 seater Pairc Ui Chaoimh in his own beloved Cork during his term.

In 1995 he was granted the freedom of Cork.

Con Murphy is the second former GAA President to pass away in a short space of time after Seamus O Riain’s death in January.

The death has just been announced of Armagh senior football. Although it had been in the doldrums for over 100 years, it showed some signs of life in 2002, but this reader has the pleasure that that team is well and truly dead and buried.

When is Down football going to be exhumed. Would there be anything there at all?

I know this is pointless but Fcuk it .

All we have is Tradition , Something you orangies would know very little about , 1 in a row doesn't cut it .We also have a ground that matches our proud history . If you lot would stay out of La Manga and stopped believing your own hype you might have a ground that you could play a championship game in . Although once the bandwagon has finally ground to a halt , Cross will be big enough for ya's .
Dont mean to dance on anyone's grave but the amount of crap we have had to listen to about ancient history and so on I just hope you boys aren't dusting off the DVD in 20 years time wondering whether you will ever do it again . Jesus knows how many we will have by then .
All the best from your good friends and neighbours . ;D

yep, man in black (rather chillingly) could be right. It's heartening though that with the state of Down football all the down lads can do is take a swipe at Armagh. We take it as a compliment you know. ;)
