Seán O’Donoughe (Photo above by David Fitzgerald/Sportsfile), from Tower, will be on the team wearing the Cork colors of red and white when they run out onto Croke Park next Sunday 22nd August 2021. It is a very proud moment for Seán and his parents, Paddy and Yvonne, his family and friends but also for the wider community in Tower and Inniscarra.
Seán plays in the Blue and White colors of Inniscarra GAA club which was founded in 1886. There have been just a handful of Inniscarra players to also don the red and white jersey for the Cork Senior men’s team on All-Ireland final day. Pat McDonnell (two All-Ireland medals) Ger Manley (on the losing side) and Tomás Ryan (one All Ireland medal) have all been proud Inniscarra men to also play at Cork senior level for the final.
And of course, we cannot forget to mention the great Rena Buckley, dual camoige and football player for Inniscarra who has won an astonishing 18 All-Ireland medals at senior level, in both disciplines, for Cork at senior level.
