Teddy Meaney Enters the Cobh Gaa Hall of Fame


- Big turnout to honour Minor hurling County winners.

The Annual Dinner Dance of Cobh Gaa was held recently in the Commodore Hotel, Cobh. Guests of honour were the Minor hurling team who were presented with County and East Cork championship medals by the new Cork senior hurling captain Kieran ‘Fraggie’ Murphy. Other presentations on the night went to, Adam McCarthy (Young Player of the Year), Lee McDermott (Junior Player ), Stephen Kearney (Intermediate Hurler), Willie O’Donovan (Administration), John O’Keeffe (Clubm

an).

The final award of the night was the Hall of Fame, which was presented to Teddy Meaney for his lifetime contribution to the Gaa in Cobh. Teddy won an Intermediate hurling championship medal in 1963 and followed this with a similar medal in football in 1968. He also represented the club on the Cork Junior hurling team in 1968. He went on to being a member of the building committee that completed the Gaa pavilion in Cobh in the ‘70’s and made his swansong as a player in 1983 winning an East Cork Junior B hurling championship medal. During the ‘80’s Ted was a selector on a number of underage teams in Cobh and looked after the running of the Junior B hurling team throughout the ‘90’s as well as acting as an Intermediate selector for a while. Still to this day he gives his time to the club and is an integral member of the group

which organises the weekly club lotto.

‘Bog The Donkey’ provided the musical entertainment into the early hours and the attendance of 180 people had a very enjoyable night indeed.
