Canon O’Brien Cup will take place this Friday January 14th at 7pm. The game will be played in the Mardyke GAA Grounds with the Cork Senior Hurlers taking on UCC Fitzgibbon Cup team.
Admission to this game is free but every year UCC GAA club take up a charitable collection. This year Carrigtwohill St.Vincent de Paul volunteers will ask for your support. This collection recognises the contribution that Margot Hartnett gave to her community in Carrigtwohill and her close connection with UCC Sport.
Speaking ahead of the game on Friday, John Grainger, UCC GAA Club said, “Our Fitzgibbon Senior Hurlers take on the Cork Senior Hurlers to once again honour Canon Michael O’Brien for a cup in his name. Michael O’Brien is a name steeped in the history and folklore of UCC GAA. Along with Dan Beechinor and Prof Willie J Smith, he led the college to 10 Fitzgibbon wins in 11 years including the famous 8 in a row. O’Brien shaped the identity of a whole group of students at that time, something that is still being carried on today. Indeed that is what his legacy will say.”
Referee: Mark Maher, St Finbarrs
