Ballinure Hurling & Football Club Winning the Perpetual Trophy in 1987.

The photo, shows a presentation of a Perpetual Cup to the officers of Ballinure Hurling & Football Club in 1987, just days before the official opening of the new club-house, at Ballinure Pitch. (From Southgate, and the archives of Con Hannigan).

“The name Con Hannigan is synonymous with Cork Sport. For almost 30 years, Con captured us all with his entertaining weekly sporting column in the Evening Echo – North & South Gate. In 2009 Con, a thorough gentleman, entrusted Richard T. Cooke with his historical archival sports files and every day this week we’ll be taking a trip down memory lane, looking at the sporting people, the historical events and other stories that happened in the Mahon and Blackrock parishes.”
