GAA Museum induct six more players into Hall of Fame

GAA

The GAA Museum at Croke Park has announced the induction of six more iconic players into the Hall of Fame for 2019 covering the period 1985 to 1989. The addition of these six new Gaelic games stars to the Hall of Fames brings the total number of inductees to 54 across hurling and football.

This year, for the first time since the Hall of Fame was launched in 2013, all three hurlers and three footballers from the five-year time-frame 1985 to 1989 were announced in the same ceremony. Hurling greats Nicky English Tipperary, Conor Hayes Galway and Terence Sambo McNaughton Antrim join an illustrious line-up in the GAA Museum Hall of Fame. On the football side, this years inductees are Denis gie Moran Kerry, Colm ORourke Meath and Larry Tompkins Cork.

Uachtarn Chumann Lthchleas Gael, John Horan, said: We cannot have great games without great players and today we get to pay due recognition to a group of footballers and hurlers who have a very special place in our history.

"The GAA Museum Hall of Fame initiative is an opportunity to honour three hurlers and three footballers - not just for their exploits for club and county and for the success they enjoyed, but to acknowledge the enormous impact they had on our games and the inspiration they were to a generation who were lucky enough to see them play.

"Thanks to our GAA Digital Archive, their exploits have been preserved for future generations to savour and I congratulate them all."

Niamh McCoy, GAA Museum Director added: For us at the GAA Museum, inducting footballing and hurling legends into the Hall of Fame is one of the most important events in the calendar. The GAA Museum Hall of Fame shines a light on the heroes of our games and is a way for their prowess on the field to be remembered permanently at the home of Irish sport. Its a great honour for us to have these incredible players here celebrating with us today.

Inductees to the GAA Museum Hall of Fame are chosen for their extraordinary talent, skills, sportsmanship and their ability to contribute to the overall performance of their team. These men have made a huge impact on hurling and football in their individual counties.

Personal objects from each of the inductees, including medals, jerseys, awards and other sporting memorabilia are on display in the GAA Museums Hall of Fame. This permanent exhibition is one of the museums most popular attractions and includes match footage featuring all 54 inductees narrated by Mchel Muircheartaigh.

In 2018, the GAA Museum welcomed 160,000 visitors, of which 30 were from overseas.

The museum, which opened in 1998, houses a vast collection tracing the birth and growth of Gaelic games and is the starting point for the Croke Park Stadium Tour and Ericsson Skyline Tour.

That was Denis "gie" Moran who won senior All Irelands in 1975, 1978 1981 and 1984 1986. gie also stands apart as the only player to win these eight All-Ireland medals playing in the same position. Over the course of 12-year senior inter-county career, Ogie Moran also won 11 Munster senior championship medals, 3 National Leagues and was an All Star in 1981.

Colm ORourke Meath

A three-time All Star in 1983, 1988 and 1991, Colm also won five Leinster championships and three National Leagues. He made 59 championship appearances for the Royal County, scoring 16 goals and 105 points. With his club, Skyrne, Colm has won two Meath senior championships in 1992 and 1993. As a student at UCD he won a Sigerson Cup medal in 1979.

Three-time All-Star winner Larry Tompkins enjoyed a nine-year senior inter-county career with the Cork footballers and was captain when the Rebels won a second consecutive All-Ireland senior title in 1990. Larry also won six Munster senior titles and a National League. Larry first came to prominence on the inter-county scene as a 16-year old in 1979 with his native county, Kildare. A member of the minor, U21 and senior football teams, he experienced All-Ireland success with the U21 team in 1983.On return from the United States in the mid-1980s, Larry settled in Cork and thus began his career for the Rebel county.
