All Ireland Sevens

Continuing our look at Passage hurlers who have played in All Ireland Hurling finals we now leave the stars of long ago and continue our look at those who played in All Ireland Hurling Finals this time since the present day Club was reformed in 1960.We start believe it or not with a Passage Club team. In the Kilmacud Crokes All-Ireland Hurling Seven's the Passage Club became the first Waterford team to reach the Final of this event on Saturday August 31st 1991. The youthful side did the Club and County proud and were loudly applauded by friends and foe alike as they gave tremendous performance in all their games. In the first round they beat DrumcuIlen (Offaly) by 4-12 to 2-11,in the second round they defeated Kiltormer (Galway) a team containing Conor Hayes and Ollie Kilkenny 3-10 to I-2. In the Quarter Final they beat the host Club Kilmacud Crokes (Dublin) by 2-8 to 1-9. After a great performance in the Semi-Final against Shannon Rovers (Tipperary) they won by 2-12 to 1-5.In the final they went under to Patrickswell of Limerick who had Gary Kirby and Pa Carey in their panel. In total the Limerick side fielded seven Inter County players, the final score was 3-4 to 1-3. The Passage Team was: Eamonn Cullinane, (Capt.), Raymond Barry, Martin Murphy, Sean Cullinane, Seamus Keating, Paul Fitzgerald, Anthony Fitzgerald, Edmond Fitzgerald and Francis Cullinane. Every member of the Passage Team, which was managed so well by Mick Kinsella and Seamus Keating, were heroes. Goalkeeper Ray Barry gave a terrific performance during all games and for good measure scored 2 points also. The squad were met at "The Point" on Sunday night and escorted through the village to "Twomey's Lounge" where a great sing song took place. This time the" Wave Curve " of likes should be the highest so far being just 29 years ago. Club PRO
