Congratulations to Sean Murphy from Killeagh The overall Individual winner of The Mayor of the County of Cork Community Awards
Born in 1939 Sean’s formal education was limited by visual impairment- he could never drive a car. However, he continued to keep himself abreast with local national and world affairs through involvement with Macra na Feirme , the GAA , local Community Council, Muintir na Tire, Political activity, Horse Racing, SECAD etc. etc.
His education progressed through being an avid listener to radio, through being a seasoned debater in many differing fora and through his worldwide travel
When hit by health adversity Sean always bounced back. Concern for his family was first, then came the vibrancy of his local Community Council , the progress of the local community Centre, the progress of Killeagh GAA affairs, the achievements of Cork County Federation of Muintir na Tire, and the general well being of Killeagh and Knocknagree his father’s native sod!!
In recognition of his Leadership skills Sean was made a life member of Killeagh Inch Community Council. In 2009, he was honoured locally for 50 years dedication to Killeagh.
Sean is currently County President of Cork County Federation Muintir na Tire and
Was recently honoured by the East Cork GAA Board for 54 years unbroken service.
