JACK SULLIVAN

Written by 

Sullivan Jack (Fordsons). 1928 v Belgium (1 cap) 

Jack Sullivan shared the distinction with Paddy Barry of being the first Cork born players to be capped after the Free State Football Association was reformed in 1921.

Jack was a strong commanding centre-half, scored from the penalty spot in Ireland’s 4-2 win over Belgium in Liege in 1928. He made up for a defeat in the 1924 Cup final by leading Fordsons to victory against Shams in the 1926 final. Jack, who was born in Spike Island, won Cork County Senior Football medals with Cobh GAA team and represented his county on several occasions. 

Jack continued to play competitive football for another twenty years and was centre-half on the GSR side beaten 2-1 after extra time by B & I Steampacket in the Intermediate Cup final of 1936. He helped Flour Mills to many successes in Inter House football.
