Paddy Duggan Park Official Opening Takes Place

Our departed forefathers, Paddy Duggan and Mick Barry, must have been looking down on Sallybrook on Saturday as the rain stayed away for the official opening of Paddy Duggan Memorial Park. The monument was offically unveiled by the Chairman of the Munster Council, Mr. Jerry O’Sullivan, ably assisted by our Club Chairman Dermot O’Connell and Anthony Duggan, son of Paddy. we were delighted to welcome our Speakers Dermot, Jerry, Ger Lane Chairman of the Cork County Board, Dick Fitzgerald Chairman of the East Cork Board, and Anhony Duggan, who paid a poignant and heartfelt tribute to his late Father and Paddy’s close friend Mick Barry and the legacy they left with Glanmire GAA. Also present were County Board Secretary Frank Murphy, Vice Chairperson Tracey Kennedy, Bishop John Buckley, Fr. Martin Barry, members of the Duggan and Barry familes and members both past and present of Glanmire GAA.

Huge Credit must go to Dermot O’Connell for coordinating the event, and also to Denis Kelleher, John McCarthy and Angela O’Callaghan for their help on the day. Also many thanks to the Mayfield Brass Band for providing entertainment, Tony O’Connell and John Murphy for Photography, Finbarr O’Keeffe for the sound logistics and Tim McCoy for videography.
