Mick’s daughter, Rose Tully, will also speak. All are welcome to this very special event. It will put a focus on Galway’s first All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship title and the first victorious captain, Mick Kenny, who was born in the parish of Duniry.
He won five County Senior Championship medals with the famous Tynagh club of the 1920s. A farmer, Mick moved to live in Portumna in the early 1930s. He died in June, 1959.
All are welcome to attend.
@GalwayHurling my grandad captained Galway when they won the All Ireland in 1923. Mick Kenny 🙂
