On Wednesday January 10th at 7.30pm, in the Mardyke GAA Grounds the annual Canon O’Brien Cup game between the Cork senior hurlers and UCC will be held. Played for the first time in 2013 the cup remembers a man who made an immense contribution to the GAA in Cork, UCC and also Farranferris College.
Michael O’Brien was part of a legacy in Cork GAA that saw him coach Farranferris to 3 Croke Cup All Ireland titles as well as 5 Harty Cups. During this period he was part of a selection committee that won 6 All Ireland minor hurling crowns for the County and many of the iconic names of Cork hurling passed through his hands. He would be instrumental in bringing the Liam McCarthy Cup to Leeside as the All-Ireland Senior hurling championship was won with wins over Offaly in the Centenary year of 1984 and again in 1990 against Galway as part of a historic hurling and football double.
He is remembered with great pride and affection in UCC GAA Club as from 1981 to 1991 he transformed not only the Hurling Club but also the Fitzgibbon Cup competition when he coached College to 10 Fitzgibbon Cup victories , including 8 in a row from ’81 to ’88. The Canon who passed away in 2014 was one of the most important figures in the development of that generation of students both on and off the field and it is hugely important that he is remembered for all that he gave to the GAA.
UCC GAA Club are delighted to welcome the Cork team to the historic Mardyke for what has always been a great evening of hurling in honour of one of Cork’s greatest figures.
As usual there will not be an admission fee but those attending are asked to donate to the Shine Centre for Autism, based in Carrigaline. The Centre provides supports and services to children with autism as well as their families across Cork City and County
