Derry

Derry beat Cork to win the 1993 mens senior all-Ireland football final. There is a link between one of the GAA founders and Derry. One of the men at the meeting in Thurles was a 22 year old Thomas St. George McCarthy an RIC man who was a noted cricketer and rugby player. Due to RIC men being banned form the GAA a year later McCarthy was unable to take any further part in the Association. However he was sent to Limavady as a District Inspector six years later where he remained for six years. He died in 1942 and two years ago the GAA erected a plaque at his grave in Dean’s Grange Cemetery in South Dublin. Red has always been the traditional Derry colour; they adopted white jersey with a red hoop for the 1946–47 National Football League final and have worn them since. Like to add something?
