Tom Creedon Cup - Intermediate Football Tournament

The Tom Creedon cup was presented by Macroom GAA Club, Muskerry Division, and Cork County Board in memory of Macroom and Cork footballer, Tom Creedon, who died tragically in 1983.

Tom Creedon was born in 1954, and played football from underage to Senior level for Macroom. He was a member of the Macroom team that won the under 14 County Schools Shield in 1967. He won mid-Cork medals at U16 in 1970, 5 minor medals from 1968 to 72, and 2 U21 medals in 1972 and 1974. At adult level he won Muskerry Cup medals in 1981 and 82, an Intermediate Football League medal in 1981, and captained the Macroom team to win the County Intermediate Football Championship in 1982, to return to Senior ranks in 1983. He played his last Championship game with Macroom against St. Nicks in May 1983, with Macroom winning by 1-9 to 0-7.

His intercounty career began in 1972 when he was a member of the Cork Minor Football team that won the Munster and All-Ireland titles. He also won a Munster U21 Football medal in 1974 when Cork beat Kerry in the Munster Final. He played on the Cork Senior Football team from 1975 to 1983, winning a National Football League medal in 1980 and played in 9 Munster Football Finals (including 2 replays in 1976 and 1982). He was a member of the Munster team that won the railway cup in 1981. Tom also played with UCC and was a member of the combined Universities team in 1976. He played with Muskerry from 1978 to 1982. Tom was a natural leader and captained Macroom at all levels. His death in August 1983 robbed Macroom of one of its greatest ever players.
