Alex Walsh Brings Liam McCarthy onto the pitch

15 October 2015


Through former Kilkenny goalkeeper and club stalwart David Herrity, Dunnamaggin Juvenile GAA club was asked to nominate someone to carry the Liam McCarthy cup onto the pitch on All Ireland final day recently. Alex Walsh from Burgess Court in Kells was the lucky member whose name came out of the hat and he was the first Kilkenny man to get his hands on the trophy on the big day!!
At 3pm, just before the teams came onto the pitch and wearing his county colours, Alex carried the famous trophy to a podium on the field which both teams fled past as they headed to warm up. Alex then carried the cup back up to the podium in the presentation area on the steps of the Hogan Stand. Well done to Alex for doing a great job and for representing our club so well on another great day for Kilkenny.
