In 1972 Miah became the hero of Cork when he scored a hat-trick in Hibs’ epic FAI Cup win over Waterford, as he recalled on that very special day.
“For some reason Brian Clough didn’t like me and I never got the chance to fulfill my true potential with him.”
Amazingly Miah played football with Mayfield side Village United up to the age of 51 in the Cork AUL.
Miah Dennehy will always be remembered for his outstanding contribution to the game of soccer.
Miah Dennehy scored a hat-trick in the FAI Senior Cup final against Waterford in 1972.
Dennehy won 13 full international caps as well as three amateur caps and one U23 cap.
He retired from soccer in 2001 at the age of 51 as his last game was with Village United in Mayfield.
Dennehy scored four goals on his debut for Cork Hibs in a Munster Senior Cup game against UCC in 1968.
