Henry Deane Cup
Spa Senior men played their Bantry Blues counterparts in the annual Henry Deane Cup on Wednesday, the 4th of September. The game was played in Spa. In a very close and competitive match the sides were level at half-time. The second half saw the forwards of Spa gain control and driven on from the back Spa took a five point lead. Bantry responded well but Spa continued to drive forward and emerged victorious. Michael O Donoghue, Spa captain, lifted the Cup which was presented by the president of Bantry Blues: Fr. Joe McCarthy.
Henry Deane, who sadly passed away in 2010, helped forge strong links between both clubs, especially at underage level. The links continue as was seen a year ago when Bantry Ladies played Spa Ladies for the Cup. Furthermore, the links were very evident when Spa U11’s were invited to Bantry during the summer for a blitz.
Henry, who became close friends with Brian Gleeson, even trekked the country supporting Spa whenever he could. He was in attendance when Spa claimed a Munster Intermediate title in Mallow ten years ago. A GAA fanatic, Henry helped form a friendship between two Clubs on opposite sides of the border and his strong message of supporting Club football lives on each year as we remember him in our games.
