The Sean Flanagan Cup

Sean & Dermot Flanagan
Sean and Dermot Flanagan in their playing days for Mayo GAA.


This cup, see photo here, was presented by Sean Flanagan to Mayo Gaels GAA club in 1993.
Sean was from Ballyhaunis and captained the Mayo All-Ireland final winning sides of 1950 and 1951 and won five Connacht senior championship medals in all. He also won two National Football League titles in 1949 and 1954. While still a footballer, Flanagan entered into a career in politics.

In recognition of his skills and long-running contribution to the sport, Flanagan was awarded the 1992 All-time all-star award as no GAA All Stars Awards were being issued at the time of his playing career. In 1984, the Gaelic Athletic Association centenary year he was honoured by being named on their Football Team of the Century. In 1999 he was again honoured by the GAA by being named on their Gaelic Football Team of the Millennium.

Mayo Gaels are very proud to have received this cup from Sean and honour his legacy by staging the Sean Flanagan Tournament each year.  Dermot Flanagan, Sean's son, and his family join us each year for the presentation.
