007 All-Ireland final 1940
This is an extremely rare picture of the 1940 All-Ireland hurling final between Limerick and Kilkenny at Croke Park which Limerick won on a scoreline of 3-7 to 1-7. Limerick players in the picture are Dick Stokes (12), Paddy McMahon (14), Jackie Power, John Mackey, Ned Chawke, Jim Roche, Timmy Ryan and Mick Mackey.
Incredibly, the Ahane club supplied eleven of the eighteen players on the Limerick panel that year, including Paddy Scanlan in goals; Mickey Hickey, Timmy Ryan, Jackie Power, Mick Mackey, John Mackey, Paddy McMahon, Tony Herbert, Dan Givens, Paddy Mackey and Paddy Kelly. Dan Givens was father of Irish soccer international, Don.
