St. John’s G.A.A. Club’s Magnificent Win This Weekend

Sincere congratulations to Aubane’s St. John’s G.A.A. Club’s truly magnificent win in the Junior B Football Championship on Saturday night in Millstreet Town Park.  The very popular Club has members from not just Aubane and Mushera but well beyond. At the Club’s Annual Church gate Collection over the weekend not just one but two superb Cups were proudly displayed.  Trainer Jimmy Murphy had a very busy schedule on Saturday night as he made it in time following the successful outcome in the important match to be present at “The Pub” in Carriganima to present substantial cheques to both Millstreet and Macroom Hospitals (fuller pictorial report on that event later) as a result of the Annual Fun Run in Carriganima.  Since this event began a most impressive €13,000.00 has been presented to assist fundraising in the hospitals.  Here we share some 11 images from the uplifting weekend.  Click on the pictures to enlarge.  (S.R.)

He was a Canadian Champion in 1907 in both the 56lb weight and the hammer throw and set a Canadian record in 1910 for the hammer and weight for height events. Cornelius set a world record of 4.93m in the 56lb weight for height event in 1910.” [Athletics Ontario]

His nephew Ned (from the same farm in Carriganima) along with Ned’s daughter Anne and son Michael attended as honoured guests. Michael told the guests:

“We are extremely grateful and honoured to accept this award on behalf of Con and all of the Walshs back home in Cork. We are very proud of Con’s achievements and we look forward to sharing this experience with our family and friends and neighbours when we return to Con’s birthplace of Carriganima.”
