Corn Seán Ó hEathírn - Under 15 E Football

Cup Description

Sean Aherne started teaching in Kilmacthomas in 1974 and immediately set to work in organising Gaelic games. The school won its first Munster title in 1979. Sean continued to organise and promote GAA as a teacher and then Principal for over 30 years in what became St. Declan’s Community College. A golden era of success was achieved with over 10 further Munster titles including a Munster Senior Double in 2000 and many Waterford titles won. The ongoing strength of Gaelic Games in St Declan’s is the legacy of Sean’s inspirational work. Sean was deeply ingrained with his native Stradbally, winning 3 County Senior Football titles and a Junior Hurling County title as well as representing Waterford Senior Footballers. Sean was manager of Stradbally in later years, helping them to win 7 County Senior titles, including 5 in a row from 2001 to 2005. Sean’s contribution to GAA in Club & School in Waterford is fondly remembered by all who came in contact with him, and he left a rich legacy for future generations.
