Michael Maher (former Munster GAA Chairman) RIP
It is regret that we have learned of the death of former Munster Council Chairman Michael Maher of Tipperary.
As a player, Michael was a renowned full-back playing with Tipperary as part of what was known as Hells Kitchen along with John Doyle and Kieran Carey.
Michael won an All-Ireland Minor Hurling medal in 1947 before graduating to the Tipperary Senior panel in 1951. Over the next 15 years, Michael won 5 Senior All Ireland titles and 6 Munster medals in addition to 8 National League medals, 5 Oireachtas medals and 4 Railway Cup medals. At club level, Michael won 3 County Senior Hurling medals with Holycross-Ballycahill.
In the years after his retirement from hurling, Michael became involved in GAA Administration and served as Tipperary County Board Chairman from 1979 to 1982 before becoming Munster Council Chairman from 1989 to 1992. Michael served on many National committees including the Management committee, Brd na bPirc, Policy and Planning, Audit and Finance. Michael also spent several years as Chairman of Semple Stadium Committee. At the time of his passing Michael was Vice-President of Tipperary County Board.
Speaking on behalf of Comhairle na Mumhan, Cathaoirleach Jerry OSullivan said It was with great sadness that we heard of the death of Michael Maher. Michael gave outstanding service to the GAA, both as legendary hurler with Tipperary in the 1950s and 1960s and subsequently as a most able administrator serving at County, Provincial and National level over a long number of years. We pass on our sincere condolences to Michaels family and his wide circle of friends. Ar dheis D go raibh a anam.
