Tallow GAA would like to congratulate our club President Eddie Cunningham on being awarded the Séamus O'Brien award in this year's Local bar Waterford GAA awards.

Pat Grant spoke eloquently of Eddie's involvement in the association on WLR FM. He stated how he served as secretary of Tallow GAA club at the age of sixteen and has held nearly all positions of his club. He was selector of Waterford minor footballers in 1967. He was selector of both hurling and football at minor grade for Waterford in 1968. His greatest achievement on the county stage was in 1992 as minor hurling selector as Waterfordwon Munster but lost out narrowly to Galway in the 1992 All Ireland Minor Hurling Final. On the administration side he served as Western board chairmain and treasurer for several years. He worked on committes for both Croke Park and the Munster Council as well as being a referee assessor. For Tallow he was involved in nearly all aspects of teams from the sixties onwards. A selector in our 1974 intermediate triumph, he was there in our senior glories of the eighties and a minor selector in 1997. His last team involvement was part of the management team of 2011 that guided Tallow to a county final appearance. Cunny has given a lifetime of service to our club and we would like to acknowledge his outstanding work and no man deserves this award more.

Well done to the Cois Bhríde U16 footballers who won the u16 football County final on Sunday in a rain swept Bushy Park against Clan Na Gaeil. The same opposition we beat fifty years ago in the minor football final. Noelie Sheehan scored two goals, Tom Doyle and John Hartigan three each and Mossie Walsh with two points.
