The Barrs were a powerful team at the time and Condon played a big part in their championship wins of 1942 and ’43.
In the historic game against Tipperary in 1950, played in Killarney, Cork lost out to the Premier County despite Condon contributing nine points for the Rebels.
“Condon is simply a pleasure to watch with his beautiful striking of the ball.”
Seán Condon was born near Phairs Cross on the Bandon Road and attended Presentation Brothers School in Greenmount.
Condon played five years as a minor with St Finbarr’s between 1937 and 1941.
Seán scored 1-3 out of his team’s final total of 2-3 in the 1946 Cork Senior championship hurling final as St Finbarr’s defeated Glen Rovers by two points.
He retired from playing in 1951 following an injury in a football game.
