PÁDRAIG Ó CAOIMH, CLG: During the last years of his time as ArdRúnaí (1929 to 1964) of the GAA, Pádraig Ó Caoimh was in poor health. He had undergone several major operations between 1944 and 1963. Central Council reduced his workload and employed new staff, including his successor-to-be….Seán Ó Síocháin from Cill na Martra.

Pádraig passed away in May 1964, a few months before he could have celebrated 35 years as ArdRúnaí (Secretary) of the GAA. The Irish Times published an appreciation of Pádraig, writing of him in glowing terms.

It stated that ‘under his administrative genius the GAA became by far the strongest sports organisation in the country and reputedly the biggest amateur association of its kind in the world. During his term of office, its membership grew to the huge proportions of today, including powerful branches in the United States, Britain, Australia and Africa; (it developed) imposing stadia, of which Croke Park was his special care. Without his ability to coordinate, plan and inspire, only a fraction of this extraordinary progress could have been achieved.’….16th May 1964. In 1974, a new home for Cork Gaelic Games was built i mBaile an Teampaill (Ballintemple), Cork, on the site of the Cork Athletic Grounds which was opened in 1917.

The new stadium was named Páirc Uí Chaoimh in honour of Pádraig Ó Caoimh. And, 44 years later (2018), we have the new fine modern Páirc Uí Chaoimh….what a nice place to visit….and to ‘pip’ Cork in a Munster Football Final! Beannacht Dé ar anam Phádraig Uí Chaoimh, the Roscommon-born Corkman!
