Famous GAA faces recall their fond memories of playing Minor football and hurling


I would concentrate on football and hurling and discover Copper Face Jacks around 26 or 27.

In what might not come as a huge surprise, it was Marty Morrissey who said that when asked what advice he’d give to his younger self; you might not know that Marty played in goals for the Clare minor footballers in his youth.

Watch now:


At Electric Ireland we are continuing to champion the Minor hurlers and footballers by proving that there’s ‘nothing minor about playing Minor’ and ahead of the Minor Hurling Final we have teamed up with Marty, Niall Breslin (Bressie) and some other very famous faces to hear about their experiences with the Minor Championship and to look back on the ‘major moments’ that shape a teenager’s life.

Follow the conversation and tell us what advice you would give to your teenage self-using the #GAAThisIsMajor

Over the 1st weekend of September, members of Cork City and County Fire Brigades assisted by Gardai and HSE Ambulance service will carry out a ladder climb to reach the heights of Mount Everest. The climb will be facilitated by a group of emergency service personnel visiting all 23 towns that have fire stations in Cork City and County.

The climb will move from town to town collecting money through sponsorship cards, selling unique collection of once off tie pins from all the services involved to commemorate the event. A bank account for this event is set up in the name of “Climbing for sick kids” under the Cork City Fire Brigade Sports and Social club. Sort code 91-41-78 Acc 77148324

All money raised will go directly to a great charity that has helped member’s families over the years, “Cork City Hospitals Children’s Club”. A committee representing various organisations have been set up to oversee the running of the event, comprising of local representatives who will be collecting and fundraising for this event.

For every ?995 raised, a sick child can enjoy a break to Euro Disney which will hopefully bring a smile back on their courageous faces while undergoing or post treatment.

There is a bucket for collection in the canteen in Wilton.


My brother in law works with Cork City Fire Brigade and is very involved with this event.

Thanking you in advance J
