This cup in memory of the late Dick Cahill who was a great figure in Glenville GAA circles for many years and this cup is held in his memory.This competition initiated in 2010 started from humble beginnings with 8 teams taking part had grown in popularity over the last three years. Initially St Vincents were the inaugural winners of the competition defeating Clyda Rovers by a goal in the Final and since then the number of teams looking to participate has seen it jump to 24 teams entered last year. Youghal won after defeating Kinsale after a great final in 2011 while last year West Cork side Clanna na Gael playing an impressive brand of attacking football defeated a gallant St Vincents side in the Final in Glenville. As with previous years teams from all over the County are taking part from every division in Cork with the exception of Beara with last years West Cork delegation consisting of teams from Dohenys, O Donovan Rossa, Newcestown and Clanna na Gael. On the other side of the county you have teams from as far as Youghal and to the North you have Millstreet, Mitchelstown so thre geographical spread is Countywide.

This year the competition will commence on the weekend of January 12th with the first rounds of games and following on with subsequent weeks after that.The winners of this round will go into the knockout cup competition while the loser of round one will go to the plate competition which means that every team will have at least two games.
