Minor family ties www.unison.ie/irish_independent/stories.php3?ca=96&si=1043287&iss
WITH Donncha Cody hoping to emulate his father Brian's achievement in
1972 by winning an All-Ireland minor medal next Sunday, the question of
father and son medal-winners at this grade is given a topical focus.
A reader asked us some weeks ago to research this topic, and we have
been making enquiries since among the well-informed. So far, our
informants have come up with:
CORK - Der ('28), Frank ('61) and Der ('67) Cogan; Willie ('38 and '39),
Kevin ('64) and Brendan ('68) Cummins; Martin ('67) and Martin (2001)
Coleman; Séamus ('69) and Seán ('95) O'Farrell; Eamonn ('69) and Aidan
('98) Fitzpatrick; Charlie ('64) and Cathal ('98) McCarthy; Seánie ('69
and '70) and Tomás (2001) O'Leary - all hurling, except for Frank and
Der Cogan Jr, Eamonn Fitzpatrick and Brendan Cummins.
DERRY - Eamonn ('65) and Gary ('89) Coleman, football.
DUBLIN - Paddy ('59) and Tony ('82) Delaney, football.
KERRY - Mike ('63) and Billy ('88) O'Sullivan, football.
KILKENNY - Richie ('75) and Richie (2002) Power; Paddy ('77) and David
(2002) Prendergast, hurling.
TIPPERARY - John ('47) and Michael ('76) Doyle, hurling.
