AS is customary during the half-time break on county final day, the Jubilee team of 25 years ago was honoured.

This year it was the turn of the Ballyduff hurlers of 1991 who beat Kenmare in the final by 0-11 to 0-7. The huge Ballyduff contingent present especially showed their appreciation of the side who were contesting their fourth final in a row that year, having won in 1988 and ’89 but losing to St Brendan’s in 1990.

Each member of the team was introduced to receive the applause of the crowd. It was fitting that the team won the championship that year as it was the centenary of Kerry (who were represented by Ballyduff) winning the All-Ireland Hurling Championship of 1891 for the first and only time.

Ballyduff beat St Brendan’s and Causeway on the way to the final, while Kenmare beat St Pat’s and Austin Stacks to reach their first final since 1947.

The Ballyduff team and subs on that day was;

Liam Boyle, Tom O’Sullivan, Noel Browne, Mike O’Carroll, Chris Houlihan, Liam Ross, Christy Ross, Jimmy O’Sullivan (capt.), Pa O’Rourke, John Enright, John Hennessy, Finbarr Whelan, Mossie O’Sullivan, Jimmy Barron, Kenneth Boyle. Subs; PJ Houlihan, Mike Joy, Mike Houlihan, Brian Purcell, DJ O’Neill, John O’Mahony, Cathal O’Connor, Anthony O’Sullivan, Tadhg O’Sullivan and John O’Halloran.
