An EXCEPTIONAL CORK SPORTSMAN
TOMMY MORONEY was not just a great dual player, but a tremendous all-round athlete, who won County and Provincial Championships in sprints and high jump. However, it looked as if it was going to be as a top class rugby player that he would make his name. He displayed his talents at an early age when starring in Schools Rugby with PBC and while with them was chosen for the Munster Schools Inter Provincial team.

MIAH LYNCH: SUCCESS FOLLOWED MIAH IN SOCCER & GAA

ROY KEANE-Probably as FAMOUS as the RIVER LEE
Roy Keane is no ordinary player and he is what thousands of young soccer players aspire to becoming. He is an iconic sporting figure who commands more media attention than the Irish Government. Yet when his class of 1988 graduated from the Rockmount Soccer Academy, he was one of the lads left at home to mind the house as his team-mates jetted off to commence careers in England. His personal letters to English clubs in search of trials brought negative results and the fact that the Irish U15 International selectors had ignored him didn’t help either.

DENIS IRWIN: A CORKMAN with Grace and Dignity
Denis who was born in Tivoli and reared in Togher and lived just a kick of a ball away from the headquarters of St Finbarr’s, one of the most famous GAA clubs in Ireland. Naturally, he played hurling and football with the Barrs and represented them on Cork U15 inter county teams. He made a name for himself as a promising all-round athlete, excelling at several disciplines and represented Cork in the Community Games in Mosney in athletics, the long puck (hurling) and chess.
