Ballydaly Teams of 1960 and 1975 Recalled in Memory of Denis Murphy

We thank Frank Reen for providing us with a copy of four images of Ballydaly Teams which have direct links with the late Denis Murphy, Ballydaly.   These wonderful photos have been displayed in splendid frames at Ballydaly Community Hall for the past number of years.  We also wish to express our thanks to David Tarrant who was the Trainer of the 1975 Team for alerting us to the historical images.   This Saturday evening (2nd March 2024) the management of the traffic for the Funeral was excellent by the marvellously dedicated Stewards directing one way traffic back Clara Road to the Murphy Family home and returning by Ballydaly Church on to the main Ballydaly-Millstreet road.  Special thanks also to Patrick Lynch originally from Ballydaly and a neighbour of the Murphy Family for his magnificent tribute which he shared on Facebook but which we were also permitted to share on our Millstreet website where it has been widely viewed and much praised.   Here are the four photos of the Ballydaly Teams.  Tap on the images to enlarge.  (S.R.)
