‘Sam Maguire’ has a Perpetual Home in Cork

As we look forward to tomorrow’s All-Ireland Football final between Mayo and Dublin we wonder who will lift high The Sam Maguire Cup.  It’s worth remembering that Sam Maguire himself was a Cork man.  This is the 90th anniversary year of Sam’s death, and the cup that bears his name was being feted in Dunmanway, County Cork last Saturday, 9th September for a very special tribute to the man himself within the community where he was born, went to school, went to church, and came home to die.

You can read all about that special event  – a community bells project of hope and reconciliation – HERE.

Here are the photos taken by photographer Andy Gibson last Saturday in Dunmanway at that historic occasion:
