Liam Sneyd was born in Cabra West on Kilkiernan Road in 1948. He played for St Finbarrs as a school boy and was a member of the winning team in 1961 in Croke Park that won the Geraldine Cup.
His teacher and coach was Padd Byrne (Paddy Ban O’Broin). He also played Senior football and Junior hurling for the Barrs up until 1968. He emigrated to Canada that year.
He has great memories of the many years he played with the Barrs. The great friends he had were Sean, Paddy, Dick, Martin Moyles (RiP), Sean Watters (RiP), Brindsly Louth, Dave Barry & Lar O’Shea to name a few.
All this information was sent in email from Canada yesterday by Liam. He sends his best wishes to all his old pals in the club and best wishes to the Barrs in the future. We want to thank Liam for his email and information.
