When Con O’Shea’s granddaughter was crowned the Rose of Tralee it was the perfect opportunity to record his stories, and the memories of his companions, Philip “Fan” Larkin and Seamus Delaney (pictured), in one of Kilkenny’s famous hurling pubs. In this interview the foundation and the success of the Clan na Gael Football Club were discussed. Phil Larkin’s great success at playing in nine All-Ireland hurling finals, and winning five medals, are also recalled as he spoke of playing with some of the best hurlers Kilkenny produced.
