Jack Falvey

(Oldest Posts First)

There's a good piece on Jack Falvey All-Ireland winner 1946 who played with Blennerville and Kerins ORahilly on Terrace Talk. Interestingly he was offered trials for Hull City but turned them down. He was my father's first cousin.

I listened all about Jack Falvey through an old interview with Weeshie Fogarty (r. I. p.). Very interesting Avon. He seemed to be a great player and a renowned boxer as well.
