AUL JAN 2001


Paddy Byrne, the recently appointed treasurer of the Murphy's Stout Cork AUL, began playing football with Richmond Boys where one of his opponents was Johnny Giles, then catching the eye with Stella Maris.

Dubliner Paddy went on to play senior league football with St Patrick's, Bluebell United, and Johnson Mooney and O'Brien. Indeed, he played centrehalf with the LSL representative side in a game versus the MSL.

Paddy, who moved to Cork in 1975, is married to Dymphna and they have four children. He has worked with BSS for the past 32 years and is a keen golfer, being a member at the Killarney and Lee Valley clubs. He also enjoys the odd swim.

He joined Ballincollig as soon as he moved to Cork, beginning 23 years as a member, and played a few years with them. He soon joined the committee as assistant treasurer before going on to become treasurer and eventually chairman (a position he held for 14 years, up to his joining the AUL last season). He is now a vice President at Ballincollig.
