All Ireland Final 1931


Continuing our look at Passage hurlers involved in All Ireland Finals we look at a man who was not from Passage but who was involved in the 1931 win for Waterford in the Junior Hurling All Ireland final. Paddy Gough from Fenor came to Faithlegg in the 1940's. When the present Hurling Club in Passage was reformed in 1960 Paddy was to become a major figure in Club being a founder member and of course he willingly put his field at the disposal of the club for years.

Getting back to the All-Ireland Junior Hurling series of 1931 one thing is certain going by the scores in each game by Waterford there was no sweeper involved. Many still say today say it’s a pity it ever came. Like all the games of that era in reports of games there were no full Christian names of players only J or P or T followed by the surname, and little or no photos. In the first round in June which was the Munster semi final Waterford beat Kerry in Listowel 9-5 to3-1. The Munster final then came to The Sportsfield in Waterford with Tipp as visitors in August. Waterford won it 7-3 to 4-5. A problem then arose in Leinster after the Leinster final which Kilkenny beat Dublin easily as Dublin objected and Kilkenny counter objected both re illegal players and both were thrown out. Waterford then met Antrim in Croke Park in the semi final beating them 6-7 to 0-3 in October. They met Lancashire in the All Ireland Final on November 1s t 1931 and the result was Waterford 10-7 Lancashire1-7. Thirty two goals in 4 games between June and November so nothing has changed. Paddy Gough who played hurling with Dunhill and football with Fenor scored 1-1 of the total. See report of final below from Irish Independent Club PRO
