Three Munster Senior Cup wins followed, in 1982, 1985, and 1989, the latter when Bradley captained the team at Temple Hill.
As a scrum-half, Bradley might have been underrated by some commentators, but true followers of the game were always quick to recognise the qualities that made him an invaluable member of club, provincial, and national squads.
Michael Bradley won 40 caps between 1984 and 1995.
Bradley played a big part in the Cork Con team that won the inaugural All-Ireland League in 1991.
He was on the Irish team that won the Triple Crown in 1985 and scored five tries for Ireland.
Michael was appointed coach of Connacht in 2003 but has also coached at Ireland (interim), Edinburgh, CSM Bucuresti and Zebre.
Bradley, along with Paul Derham, coached the 1999 Cork Con AIL winning team.
