Teddy McCarthy Obituary, Dual GAA Star Has Passed Away

Teddy McCarthy Obituary, Death – This next weekend will see the funeral of Teddy McCarthy, who was a dual GAA star. Huge numbers are expected. The requiem mass for the 57-year-old man from Glanmire is scheduled to take place on Saturday morning at 11 am in St. Joseph’s Church in Springhill. Family and friends of the deceased will be present to pay their final goodbyes to him.

Tanaiste Micheal Martin, who was among those paying their respects to the Sars and Glanmire clubman, said that Teddy “will forever live in our memories” because he was the only player ever to win an All-Irel football and hurling title in the same year. Teddy was the only player ever to accomplish this feat. Teddy played half forward for Meath in the football championship two weeks after scoring 0-03 in the final of the 90-minute hurling competition against Galway.

During his eleven-year inter-county career, he was successful in both rugby and soccer, winning four All-Ireland crowns and nine Munster championships. After hanging up his cleats, the midfielder transitioned into a career as a coach and eventually managed both Sarsfield and Bandon in hurling. In addition to that, he was a selector for the teams representing Cork, and he managed the hurlers for Laois.

During the time that they were sending their condolences to his family, one of the people who paid respect to him was Sarsfield, who called him a “true ambassador” for the club. They commented, “We at Sarsfields Hurling Club are beyond devastated at the sudden passing of our much loved Vice-Chairman, Teddy McCarthy.” Teddy McCarthy was a longtime member of the club.

“Teddy was our most famous player and the only player to win medals in both the All-Ireland inter-county hurling competition and the All-Ireland inter-county football competition in the same season. Teddy was the epitome of a true advocate for both our club and the GAA family as a whole. His death has created a tremendous void for all of our members, young and old, and he will be greatly missed by each and every one of us. The Club would like to express its sincerest sympathies to his wife, Oonagh, as well as to his sons Cian and Niall, daughter Sinead, and other members of his extended family. Arrangements for the funeral will be forthcoming.”
