Did you know that in the 1928 to 1930 period Dick Walsh of Tubradora fame one of the three Walsh Brothers who played senior hurling for Tipperary bought a farm in Graigue, Clerihan and started a team of his own. This team only lasted a short time and some of the players from this team joined the Moyle Rovers. Some of the players were Jim Egan, Maurice Flannery, Jack O Donnell,and Andy Moloney. This team went on to win the county junior football championship in 1931. They defeated a combination of Ballyneale and Carrick United in the South Final on a score of 2-2 to 0-1. They defeated “mid Tipperary” in the county Final by 2-5to 1-0. Members of that team were as follows:Ned, James & Paddy Murphy, Dick Lonergan, Pat & Mick Markley, Maurice Flannery, Wm Quinlan, Jim Egan, John McGrath, Wm Burke, Pat Hannon, Andy Moloney, Jack O Donnell, Mick Fahey, Willie Lonergan, Wilile Bergin. Imagine the achievement, just within three years of being formed, The Moyle Rovers team were crowned county junior Champions. Having won the county junior championship the Moyle Rovers were now playing in the Senior Football championship in 1932. Little did they know as the time but it took another almost 60 years before the Moyle Rovers would win their first south senior championship which happened in 1991.
