All Ireland Minor Medal winner Sean O’Leary of Mastergeeha is the toast of the parish and Kilcummin GAA club after his superb performance in Croke Park on Sunday last in the heart of the Kerry defence. We all reflect in the glory of his achievement being the first person from the parish to win a minor medal at this level since Timmy Joe Fleming in 1994. Our heartiest congratulations to Sean and his family and we believe even greater accolades await this talented and affable young gentleman in the future. Special mention to James Foley who is a selector with this successful team for a second year in a row and who is also a valued member of Kilcummin GAA club.
