Corn Sheáinmhic Mhurchidh - Under 18 ½ C Football

Cup Description

The trophy is named after Shane Ó Murchú, Coláiste Ghobnatan Baile Mhúirne and Clondrohid GAA. Shane was an outstanding underage talent excelling at both football and hurling equally. He won numerous medals and awards throughout his tragically short career, winning man of the match scoring 3-1 in the Munster Under 16 Vocational Schools final in April 2012. He was destined for huge things prior to his tragic passing on the field of play in December of that year having become the inspirational leader of the Coláiste Ghobnatan Senior team, and indeed it was fitting that the team went on to win the County and Munster Vocational Senior Colleges titles that year in his memory. On an emotional January day in Mallow last year, Coláiste Ghobnatan found themselves up against Thurles CBS in the inaugural Munster PPS C Final, and when it was announced to trainer Mickey Ned Ó Sullivan prior to throw in, that Shane’s teammates would be playing for the Shane Murphy Memorial Cup, come hell or high water they were not going to be denied. A quiet, unassuming lad that was destined to wear the county jersey in both codes, he is greatly missed by all that had the privileged of knowing him. Ar dheis dé go raibh a anam óg.
