1990 - A year synonymous with one of the most successful periods in the history of Lismore GAA
As 2020 came to a close, it marked the 30th anniversary when Lismore GAA club were crowned "Club of the Year". It was a golden period culminating in winning all underage hurling titles and also the fact that our U14 team represented the county at Féile na nGael for a record seventh year in a row. It was a testament to the work that was being done at underage level specifically at the Christian Brothers School in Lismore. One also remembers those enjoyable days after all that hurling during the day to go back up to the school yard for yet more hurling with "Dick's Leagues". Dick Ahearne, who was the school caretaker at the time, co-ordinated a series of games (involving forty youngsters) which were run off in clockwork fashion every year. In 1990 Team "C" were crowned U10 champions and was captained by none other than our own current chairman Colin Kearney. In this week's picture we take a look at the U12 team who were crowned Western Champions in 1990 after beating Abbeyside in the final on a scoreline Lismore 7-05 Abbeyside 0-04. A reception at the Lismore Hotel followed on 25th January 1991 where Cork dual legend Teddy McCarthy presented the players with their medals. Next week we look at the U14 team of 1990.
