Club Chairman Patrick English was MC on the night and gave a very detailed account of TJ’s playing career and administration with the Club as PRO and Secretary before passing away very suddenly at a young age. Indeed Patrick spoke at length about the Clancy family’s involvement in the GAA as T.J’s father, the late Tom Clancy had a long playing career with the Club coming out of retirement to help out Galtee Rovers in the 1957 County Final. A magnificent cup in memory of T.J was blessed by Fr. Dick Kelly P.P Kilbehenny/Anglesboro before it was presented to Hugh Murphy, Secretary of the South Board by Marie Clancy. Hugh spoke in glowing terms of T.J’s contribution and that of Galtee Gaels to the G.A.A. T.J’s wife Marie and sister Aisling replied on behalf of the Clancy Family. Bill Fox P.R.O of the South Board then presented the Old Murphy Cup back to Galtee Gaels Chairman, as it had been procured from Murphy’s Brewery by Mick Mullins – a then publican in Kilbehenny and a man who was very much involved in G.A.A in the mid 1940’s.
