Club stal­wart feted

Ke­hoe Memo­rial Tro­phy for Sea­mus

New Ross Standard - - SPORT -

A FEA­TURE of the re­cent Gusser­ane O’Rahilly’s G.A.A. club A.G.M. was the in­au­gu­ral pre­sen­ta­tion of the Paddy Ke­hoe Memo­rial Cup.

This fine piece of sil­ver­ware was do­nated to the club by the Ke­hoe fam­ily of New Ross in re­mem­brance of the late, great Paddy Ke­hoe.

Paddy, of course, had rep­re­sented the O’Rahilly’s club as well as Wex­ford’s hurlers and foot­ballers with un­prece­dented suc­cess through the 1940s and 1950s.

The club was al­ways close to Paddy’s heart and it was de­cided that the clubper­son of the year would be hon­oured with this per­pet­ual tro­phy go­ing for­ward.

A richly-de­serv­ing win­ner of the in­au­gu­ral pre­sen­ta­tion was pop­u­lar Kin­nagh man and well-known Gael, Sea­mus Cullen.

A for­mer stal­wart of Gusser­ane foot­ball teams of the 1970s and 1980s, Sea­mus con­tin­ues to work tire­lessly and self­lessly for the good of the club.

Paddy’s daugh­ter, Julie, was on hand with her hus­band, Jackie, to present the im­pres­sive cup to Sea­mus.
