Cork Hurling and Football double – 30 years ago

Sunday September 16th 1990 will forever be a special day in the history of Cork GAA, as the Cork Senior Footballers defeated Meath to secure the All-Ireland title to go along with the All-Ireland victory secured by the Hurlers two weeks previous over Galway. It was especially a special time for Teddy McCarthy who secured his place in GAA history by playing in both games, and thus completing a unique double of his own.

To mark the occasion, both the Liam McCarthy and Sam Maguire trophies paid a visit to SuperValu Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Tuesday where both captains from 1990, Larry Tompkins and Tomás Mulcahy along with Teddy McCarthy were on hand to meet with the Lord Mayor of Cork , Cllr Joe Kavanagh and his wife Stephanie as City Hall will be lit up in Red, as the city and county Go Red for Cork.

Later today both games will be able to view on the GAA Now platform
