GERALD McCARTHY is still rated by many as one of the best midfielders ever to wear a Cork jersey.
In John Horgan's team and our fans' poll in recent weeks, he made the starting 15 in the Cork All-Star selection from 1970 to 2020.
Gerald had to wait for four years for his next senior All-Ireland when Cork captained by Paddy Barry defeated Wexford.
“Con Roche hit a wonderful point in the second half that gave us a seven-point lead but amazingly in the last quarter we remained static and ended up losing the game.”
Anyone who knows their hurling, they'd agree Gerald was a master and colossus of the game.
