Honoring a Legend: Galway and Meath Face Cork in Teddy McCarthy Tribute Event

 

In a poignant tribute to the late Teddy McCarthy, Galway and Meath are set to play a double-header against Cork at Páirc UíChaoimh on December 9th. The event aims to celebrate the unique career of McCarthy, a true icon of the GAA world, who passed away in June of this year.

Teddy McCarthy’s remarkable achievement of winning Senior All-Ireland titles in both hurling and football in 1990 is a feat unmatched in the history of the sport. To commemorate his legacy, specially commissioned memorial trophies will be presented to the winners of the Galway hurlers vs. Cork (5 pm) and Meath footballers vs. Cork (3 pm) games.

Marc Sheehan, Chairperson of Cork GAA, expressed gratitude to Meath and Galway for participating in these fixtures. The day will begin with a function for Teddy’s colleagues from the 1990 teams, who will be introduced to the crowd during halftime. Mini-games featuring Glanmire Ladies Football, Sarsfields, Passage Underage teams, and North Mon First years will add to the festive atmosphere.

A series of interviews with Teddy’s former colleagues and opponents will take place during a special event in the Seandún room.

 

Match tickets, priced at €20 and €17 (OAPs & students), can be purchased on the official Cork GAA website. All U16s get free admission, and proceeds from ticket sales go to the Teddy McCarthy Memorial Fund. Additionally, a GoFundMe link is available for those who wish to contribute directly.
