History

Early Days (1886-1935)

The Waterford County Board was established in 1886 in Kilmacthomas and played in the Munster Championship for the first time in 1888, losing to Cork on a score of 2-8 to 0-0. The next fourteen years would consist of walkovers, first round defeats and not entering the competition at all. Waterford would finally win a championship match for the first time in 1903, defeating Kerry by 5-6 to 2-9. In their first Munster final, which did not take place until 1904, Waterford would lose to Cork. The following years led to another series of opening Munster championship match defeats and the occasional walkover, and Waterford would not win another senior championship match until 1925 when Clare were defeated, only for Tipperary to beat them in only their second Munster final.

At this stage, Waterford was still the only county in Munster to neither win the provincial or All-Ireland hurling title, but there were now signs of improvement. The Minor hurlers reached the first ever Munster final in 1928, losing to Cork. They would make up for this defeat the following year against Tipperary and would defeat Meath in the All-Ireland final. The Junior hurlers secured the counties first ever adult silverware in 1931, winning both the Munster and All-Ireland titles. They would repeat this feat in 1934. // Constituent counties Cork Clare Kerry Limerick Tipperary Waterford Hurling All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championships: 68 Cork: 1890, 1892, 1893, 1894, 1902, 1903, 1919, 1926, 1928, 1929, 1931, 1941, 1942, 1943, 1944, 1946, 1952, 1953, 1954, 1966, 1970, 1976, 1977, 1978, 1984, 1986, 1990, 1999, 2004, 2005 Tipperary: 1887, 1895, 1896...

At senior level, the county was edging ever closer to Munster success, with the 1931 team drawing with Cork in the final to lose the replay by a margin of 15 points. A fifth Munster final appearance ended when the match against Limerick was abandoned due to crowd encroachment late on with Limerick leading by 11 points. The title was awarded to Limerick, who would defeat Waterford again in the 1934 decider. :For more details of Limerick GAA see Limerick Senior Club Football Championship or Limerick Senior Club Hurling Championship. ...


The Golden Age (1936-1963)

The Junior hurlers won the county's third Munster and All-Ireland double at that level in 1936, and the senior hurlers, after those near misses at the start of the decade, were ready to secure the Munster title. An 11 point win over Cork in the 1938 Munster semi-final saw Waterford into their seventh Munster final, where they defeated Clare by 3-5 to 2-5. They reached the county's first ever All-Ireland final after an easy win over Galway, where they went down to Dublin in Croke Park by 2-5 (11) to 1-6 (9). The following year, Waterford played in their first National Hurling League final, losing to Dublin by 1-8 (11) to 1-4 (7). :For more details of Galway GAA see Galway Senior Club Football Championship or Galway Senior Club Hurling Championship. ...

If Limerick had proven to be Waterford’s nemesis in the 1930’s, defeating Waterford again in 1940 on their way to another All-Ireland, the 1940’s belonged to Cork who would win the All-Ireland four years running from 1941 to 1944 and again in 1946, defeating Waterford in 1943, 1946 and 1947.


By 1948 though, Waterford’s time had finally come. Defeating Clare by two points in the Munster semi-final, the margin was even narrower in the Munster final against Cork, Waterford prevailing by a score of 4-7 (19) to 3-9 (18). Galway were overcome in the All-Ireland semi-final, and Dublin – containing RTÉ broadcaster Seán Óg Ó Ceallacháin in the half-forward line – were well beaten, on a score of 6-7 (25) to 4-2 (14). Waterford had won the Liam McCarthy Cup at last. To add to the joy of 1948, the Minor team would win the county’s second Munster and All-Ireland titles, defeating Tipperary (3-6 to 0-3) and Kilkenny (3-8 to 4-2) respectively.

Limerick relieved Waterford of their titles in the first defence in 1949, defeating them by five points in the Munster semi-final. The early 1950’s saw Waterford come up against Tipperary and Cork teams at the peak of their powers, and Waterford would not reach another Munster final until 1957.


By this time, Waterford had the nucleus of a team that would contest hurling’s major prizes with Tipperary and Kilkenny for the next six years. A close fought victory over Limerick in the semi-final (4-12 to 5-5) saw Waterford into the Munster final where they defeated a Cork team shorn of Christy Ring due to injury on a score of 1-11 (14) to 1-6 (9). Galway were once again defeated in the semi-final, and Kilkenny waited in the final. The game had a few unusual events. Kilkenny paraded around the pitch with sixteen players as British actor John Gregson was being recorded for his role in the film Rooney[1]. The game saw Amhrán na bhFiann being played at the start of the second half as the referee threw the ball in to start the game before the Artane Boys Band had started the anthem. Waterford led the match 1-6 to 1-5 at half-time and had extended that lead to six points with ten minutes to go, but Kilkenny overtook Waterford with two goals and a point to leave them winners on a score of 4-10 (22) to 3-12 (21).

1958 was the first year Waterford won through to the Munster final having won it the previous year, a win over Kerry setting up the shot at a repeat victory. However, Tipperary were convincing winners on a score of 4-12 (24) to 1-5 (8). Tipperary would also defeat Waterford in the county’s second National Hurling League final appearance in 1959 by seven points. Galway were the first opponents in that year’s Munster championship, and the Tribesmen were well beaten, 7-11 (32) to 0-8. Tipperary were waiting in the semi-final, where they choose to play against a stiff first-half breeze. Waterford took full advantage of this, scoring 8-2 in the first half without reply, and eventually winning 9-3 (30) to 3-4 (13). The county’s fourth Munster title was secured with a three point win over Cork in Thurles. In the All-Ireland final, Kilkenny would make life difficult for Waterford with a string of goals, and with minutes remaining Waterford found themselves in the incredible position of having outscored Kilkenny by seven yet still being three points behind. But Seamus Power’s late goal ensured a draw, 1-17 to 5-5. Waterford did not repeat those mistakes in the replay, securing the county’s second All-Ireland title, 3-12 (21) to 1-10 (13).


Tipperary got their revenge in the 1960 Munster semi-final for the remarkable scoreline the previous year, and they continued to make life hard for Waterford in 1961, beating Waterford in that year’s League final by 6-6 (24) to 4-9 (21). Cork defeated Waterford in the 1961 Munster championship, and while wins over Clare and Cork saw Waterford into the 1962 final, Tipperary hammered Waterford by 20 points to secure a third successive Munster title. The 1963 League final against Tipperary – the ‘Home’ final as the winners were due to meet New York for the title proper – was much closer, with Waterford winning a thrilling match by 2-15 (21) to 4-7. There was to be no such free-scoring the 1963 Munster final though, reached after a six point in over Limerick in the semi-final., Waterford edging a tense affair by 0-11 to 0-8, a result that would be Tipperary’s only senior championship defeat between 1961 and 1965, effectively denying them a 'five-in-a-row'. In the All-Ireland final, Kilkenny were inspired by a 14 point haul from Eddie Keher to a 4-17 (29) to 6-8 (26) victory. There was some consolation for Waterford in the National Hurling League final ‘proper’, where after a scare in a drawn first game (3-6 to 3-6) Waterford won the replay against New York by 3-10 (19) to 1-10 (13).

Dark Era (1964–1991)

It would not have seemed likely in 1964 that Waterford would not win another senior title for nearly forty years, and the county remained competitive in the mid 1960’s, narrowly losing out to Cork in 1964 and only losing to the same opposition in 1965 after a replay. But a young Cork team, containing several of the team that would win that year’s Under-21 hurling championship, defeated Waterford in the 1966 Munster final, and despite gaining their revenge in the first round of the 1967 Munster championship, Waterford were beginning to struggle. Defeat followed in the Munster semi-final to Tipperary, and Waterford would not win another championship match until 1974.

1974 was a brighter year for Waterford, as the seniors shocked Cork in the first round of the Munster championship, and were only beaten by one point by defending All-Ireland champions Limerick in the semi-final. John Galvin won the county’s first All Star award. The county also secured its first ever victory in the Munster Under-21 championship, defeating Clare by 2-5 (11) to 1-3 (6) in the final. Antrim were well beaten in the semi-final to set up another All-Ireland final against Kilkenny, only to see Kilkenny come out winners by a narrow margin once again, 3-8 (17) to 3-7 (16).

However, 1974 was a brief respite on a downward slide for Waterford hurling. A Cork team about to embark on a three-in-a-row of All-Ireland success hammered Waterford by 22 points in the first round in 1975, and the only county Waterford would beat in the Munster championship over the following six years was Kerry. The only bright spot at senior inter county level would be Mossy Walsh’s All Star award in 1980. Mount Sion would also win the county’s first Munster club title, defeating South Liberties of Limerick in the final. James Stephens of Kilkenny would defeat Mount Sion by 3-13 (22) to 3-8 (17) in the All-Ireland final.

James Stephens (nicknamed: The Village), is a Kilkenny based GAA club. ...


1982 was the beginning of one of the blackest periods in Waterford’s hurling history. An unbeaten run in the league stage of the National League was ended only after a replay in the semi-final by Kilkenny, and a one-point over defending Munster champions Limerick in the semi-final raised hopes that a twenty-three year wait for Munster success was about to come to an end. But in their first Munster final appearance since 1966, Waterford were humiliated by Cork, losing by 5-31 (46) to 3-6 (15). There was individual reward in the form of All Star awards for Jim Greene and John Galvin (his second), but the disappointment of that year was compounded in 1983. Having overcome a young Tipperary side seeking their county’s first championship win in eight years, Waterford were back in the Munster final only to be crushed by Cork again, 3-22 (31) to 0-12.


The Centenary year saw relegation to Division Two of the National Hurling League and a one point defeat to Clare in the Munster championship. Waterford would have to wait until 1989 to win another championship match, a period which would see them relegated to Division Three of the National Hurling League. Waterford would return immediately to Division Two and reach successive League semi-finals in 1987 and 1988, where they were heavily defeated by Galway and Tipperary respectively. 1989 would see a revival in Waterford’s fortunes as Clare were beaten by 15 points in the Munster first round then Cork were overcome in the semi-final after two exciting matches. Having let a lead slip in the first game to draw 0-18 each, Waterford reached the Munster final with a two point win. However, the final was a reminder of those grim days in the early 1980’s, Waterford having two players sent off as they slumped to a 0-26 to 2-8 (14) defeat in the 100th Munster final against Tipperary. Cork would end Waterford’s interest in the next two championships by a large margin (17 points in 1990) and a small margin (three points in 1991). Foundation and Early History The man directly involved in the founding of the GAA was a Clareman named Michael Cusack. ...


Modern Revival (1992 to the present)

The 1992 Munster championship was a relatively good one for the seniors, defeating Clare after a replay and only losing by three points to Limerick in the semi-final. It was the underage sides though that would provide Waterford with its best year in nearly three decades. The Minor hurlers, playing in their first Munster final since 1968, needed a last minute Paul Flynn goal to secure a draw, Waterford’s 4-7 to Tipperary's 3-10 . Between that drawn game and the replay, the Under-21’s defeated a Ger Loughnane-managed Clare team by 0-17 to 1-12 (15). The jubilation had barely subsided from that win before the Minors defeated Tipperary in the replay, 2-10 to 0-14. With victories in each grade over Antrim in the semi-finals, a new generation of Waterford fans got to visit Croke Park for the first time. The Minor final ended in a disappointing defeat to Galway, 1-13 (16) to 2-4 (10). The Under-21 final against Offaly was staged a few weeks later in Nowlan Park, Kilkenny. 0-9 to 0-4 down at half-time, a second half hat-trick of goals from Seán Daly kept Waterford in touch before a late goal from Paul Flynn looked to have secured victory for Waterford. Two late Offaly points ensured a replay on a final score of 4-4 to 0-16. The replay once again had Offaly in front at half-time, 2-3 (9) to 0-6. Waterford held their opponents scoreless in the second half and a late flurry of points secured a 0-12 to 2-3 (9) victory and a first ever All-Ireland Under-21 hurling championship title.

The progress represented by these underage successes was interrupted in the first round of the Munster championship in 1993 as Kerry won in Walsh Park by 4-13 (25) to 3-13 (22), the Kingdom’s first senior hurling championship win since 1926. The next few years would be frustratingly unfulfilling for a county expecting great things after the events of 1992. A narrow defeat to Limerick in 1994 was followed by a big defeat in 1995 to Tipperary, a year which saw another heavy National League semi-final defeat to a Clare team on its way to a first All-Ireland success in 81 years with much of the team beaten by the Under-21’s in 1992. The Under 21’s had also beaten Clare again in the 1994 Munster final, although had gone down to a 2-21 (27) to 3-6 (15) defeat in an unusual Munster-Leinster semi-final pairing. The Minors reached three finals in a row from 1994 to 1996 and had taken big defeats in each one.

A close loss to Tipperary in Walsh Park in the 1996 Munster semi-final suggested there might be still life in the 1992 generation, and the appointment of former Cork All-Ireland winning trainer Gerald McCarthy as Waterford manager was seen as a step up in intent on behalf of the County Board. A poor first half performance cost them dear in the first round against Limerick in 1997, but the introduction of the hurling ‘back door’ gave Waterford extra incentive to perform well in the 1998 championship, especially with a relatively kind draw in Munster. An excellent run in the National League saw Waterford reach their first final since 1963, laying the semi-final hoodoo with a five point win over Limerick. A tight match in the final saw Cork pull away for a flattering win by 2-14 (20) to 0-13. The morale that had been raised on the back of that run in the League was nearly squandered as Waterford needed a late flurry of point to secure an even more flattering eight points win against Kerry. Despite this, confidence was high going into a semi-final that, due to the Munster finalists being guaranteed a place in the All-Ireland series, had an extra frisson of tension. The Waterford hurlers did not disappoint, securing a 0-21 to 2-12 (18) win over Tipperary. Waterford were back in the Munster final and heading for Croke Park. Gerald McCarthy (born September, 1945) is a former Irish sportsperson who played hurling with Cork in the 1960s and 1970s. ...


The 1998 Munster final was memorable on many levels. On a windy day in Thurles, Waterford struggled to keep in touch with Clare, All-Ireland champions for two of the previous three years, but when Paul Flynn fired a free to the net with the match entering injury time to level the scores, Waterford had a golden opportunity to win it from a 100 metre free. Flynn’s effort drifted wide but the replay was much anticipated by a crowd enthralled by the draw. The replay was an unpleasant affair, a chaotic throw-in eventually leading to the suspension of Clare hurler Colin Lynch, a decision that would leave much bad feeling between the two counties[2], and the sending off of Brian Lohan and Miceal White early in the game set the tone for the match itself. Clare would eventually run out comprehensive 2-16 (22) to 0-10 winners, and Waterford had to play Galway in the All-Ireland quarter-finals a week later.

On the back of two hard matches on the previous Sundays, Waterford were underdogs against Galway. But Waterford dominated from start to finish, ending up easy winners by 1-20 (23) to 1-10 (13). This set up a first championship meeting with Kilkenny in thirty-five years, and a low-scoring game saw Waterford battle back from being six points down midway through the second half to only lose by a point. Incredibly, Waterford had scored five more points over the course of their four championship ties with Kilkenny, yet the record was 3-1 to the Cats.

Expectations were once again high in Waterford and they seemed to be justified when they secured a narrow one-point win over Limerick, their first win over Limerick since 1982. Waterford found themselves in the unusual position of being favourites against Cork, but a poor Waterford effort and a spectacular eight points from play from Michael O’Connell in the Cork midfield left Waterford losers on a score of 0-24 to 1-15 (18). Another good run in the 2000 National League ended once again in the semi-finals, this time to Galway, and Waterford went out of the Munster championship with a whimper, beaten 0-17 to 0-14 by Tipperary. The Gerald McCarthy era, which had promised so much, ended in a cruel manner against Limerick in 2001. Waterford raced into a 2-6 (12) to 0-1 lead after fifteen minutes, but Limerick hung in and scored three goals in the last ten minutes to break Waterford’s resistance, winning in the end by 4-11 (23) to 2-14 (20).


It was with this unpromising setup that another former All-Ireland winner with Cork, Justin McCarthy became manager. An unremarkable League performance did not suggest Waterford were ready to topple Cork, but despite having a five point second half lead eroded to nothing late in the game, Waterford held their nerve to score a late point from Ken McGrath and a 1-16 (19) to 1-15 (18) victory. In the Munster final that followed, the reigning Munster and All-Ireland champions Tipperary were warm favourites, but a spectacular display of shooting from Waterford gave the Déise a 2-23 (29) to 3-12 (21) victory that was even more impressive than the final margin of eight points suggested. Waterford were confident of adding the All-Ireland crown to this first trophy in 39 years, but despite a flying start in the semi-final against Clare, they eventually faded to lose by three points. The season was still a success from a Waterford perspective, and Fergal Hartley, Eoin Kelly and Ken McGrath were selected for All Star awards. Justin MCarthy (22 November 1830 - 1912) was an Irish politician, historian and novelist. ... This article does not cite its references or sources. ...

Waterford began the defence of their sixth Munster title with an easy win over Kerry before meeting Limerick a match where, unusually among modern GAA championship matches, no cameras were present due to a fire safety issue at Thurles, thus ensuring only those who were there got to enjoy a thrilling tie, with Waterford as in 2001 racing into an early lead only to be hauled back by Limerick. The match ended level, 4-13 (25) each, but the televised replay was an anti-climax, with Waterford hanging on for a 1-13 (16) to 0-14 victory. The Munster final against Cork featured a hat-trick of goals from a player on the losing team, in this case John Mullane of Waterford. They had failed to make a first half breeze count and, despite the heroics from Mullane, Cork won by four points, 3-16 (25) to 3-12 (21). John Mullane’s performance would be pivotal in him securing Waterford’s sole All Star for the year, as the season petered out in the All-Ireland series with a disappointing 1-20 (23) to 0-18 defeat in Waterford’s first ever championship match with Wexford.

The 2004 National League saw Waterford reach their seventh final, secured by finishing top of a second phase of group games thanks to a late equalising point from Paul Flynn against Tipperary. There was more disappointment though as Galway were convincing 2-15 (21) to 1-13 (16) winners. To regain the Munster title, Waterford were going to have to do it the hard way by beating Clare and Tipperary just to reach the final. A measure of revenge for 1998 was secured against Clare as Waterford sensationally trounced the Banner County by 3-21 (30) to 1-8 (11), a performance illuminated by a hat-trick of goals from Dan Shanahan. The semi-final was a much tighter affair, with a late goal from sub Paul O’Brien needed to beat Tipperary by 4-10 (22) to 2-15 (21). The final against Cork was hailed as a classic and a match that ebbed and flowed turned on an audacious dipping medium range free from Paul Flynn that surprised the Cork backs for a goal. Waterford secured their seventh Munster title with one point, 1-21 (24) to 3-15 (25), win. The All-Ireland semi-final saw another clash with Kilkenny and another three point defeat, a first half salvo of three goals giving Waterford a mountain that proved too difficult to climb. Gallingly for Waterford, Kilkenny had come through the All-Ireland series, and would lose out in the final to Cork who themselves had come through the ‘back door’. Paul Flynn’s tally of 0-13 against Kilkenny would copperfasten his first All Star award, with Dan Shanahan getting his first and Ken McGrath winning his second, only the second Waterford man after John Galvin to win multiple All Stars. Dan Shanahan (born 4 January 1977) is an Irish sportsperson. ...


For the most part, 2005 and 2006 saw Waterford go backwards under Justin McCarthy. A narrow defeat to Cork in the Munster semi-final left Waterford in a round robin group in the All-Ireland qualifiers, where facile wins over Dublin and Offaly were rendered moot by a 4-14 (26) to 0-21 defeat to Clare in the final group match in Ennis. This left Waterford with a more difficult quarter-final against Cork, in which stout Waterford resistance was only ended five minutes from the end by a Brian Corcoran goal, Cork eventually winning by 1-18 (21) to 1-13 (16). An eight point defeat by Tipperary in the 2006 Munster championship, Waterford’s largest championship defeat in eight years, suggested Waterford were in decline, but a 1-25 (28) to 2-20 (26) win over Galway in the qualifiers, allied with comfortable wins over Westmeath and Laois, gave Waterford another shot at Tipperary in the quarter-finals, and this time they took their second chance, surviving a late Tipperary rally to win by 1-22 (25) to 3-13 (22). Cork stood between Waterford and the final, and another tension-filled match saw Cork only overhaul Waterford in the last ten minutes. Waterford kept in touch to the point where a late Ken McGrath free from his own half could have given Waterford a draw, but Cork goalkeeper Donal Óg Cusack took the risk of blocking the ball from going over the bar and Cork held on for a one point win. Eoin Murphy won his first All Star award, while Dan Shanahan and Tony Browne both won their second award, Browne his first in eight years.

Justin McCarthy secured another year in charge on the back of the performance in 2007, and after an indifferent run in the group stages of the 2007 National League which say Waterford just qualify for the quarter-finals, there was little to suggest a successful year. But tight wins over Tipperary and Cork saw Waterford into another League final, and with the scores level going into injury time in the final against Kilkenny, two late points gave Waterford a 0-20 to 0-18 victory and only their second National League title. Waterford’s winning ways continued with a three point win over Cork in the Munster semi-final in a game overshadowed by the suspension of three Cork players in a brawl that took place before their first round win over Clare. In the final against Limerick, Dan Shanahan scored three second half goals as Waterford won the Munster title for the eighth time. The Intermediate hurling team also won the Munster title for the very first time, although they would eventually lose to Wexford in the All-Ireland final.

A shock loss by Cork at the hands of Tipperary in the qualifiers meant Waterford had to face a full-strength Cork in the quarter-finals. Ahead for most of the game, Waterford once again found themselves behind as the match entered injury time, but a Stephen Molumphy goal and a controversial pointed free from Eoin Kelly, after Donal Óg Cusack had been penalised for lying on the ball in the small square, gave Waterford a second chance. A week later, two Dan Shanahan goals proved instrumental in giving Waterford a 2-17 (23) to 0-20 win. Waterford had only one week to prepare for an All-Ireland semi-final rematch with Limerick and this time it was Limerick who got off to a flying start, leading by ten points inside the first ten minutes. Waterford would cut the gap to a point late in the second half but frailties in the full back line were punished by Limerick with late goals to give them a 5-11 (26) to 2-15 (21) win, condemning Waterford to their fifth All-Ireland semi-final loss in ten years. The season ended on an upbeat note with a record five All Star awards, Tony Browne and Ken McGrath winning their third awards, Dan Shanahan his second, and Stephen Molumphy and Michael Walsh their first. Shanahan also won the Hurler of the Year award. Stephen Molumphy (born 1984) is an Irish sportsperson. ... Michael Brick Walsh (born 1983) is an Irish sportsperson. ...
