About Maurice (Mossy) O'Sullivan

O'Sullivan, Mossy 17 September 2009 Mossy O'Sullivan goes to his eternal reward

The death of Maurice O'Sullivan (Mossy) formerly of Charleville, but who resided for many years in Ballyhea parish, leaves only three surviving members of the famous Charleville team of the 40's that won the Cork County Intermediate Hurling Championship in 1946/47. A native of the town, Mossy played on the Charleville minor team of 1938/39/40 and was then on the junior team that defeated Ballyhooly in Doneraile in the North Cork final in 1945. He wore the number four jersey with distinction for Charleville and went on to figure prominently in the team's two victories in the 1946 and '47 County Intermediate finals and was an automatic choice on Charleville teams of that era. In the 1946 final, the locals defeated Cloughduv and in the 1947 campaign they accounted for Buttevant, Doneraile, Clonakilty and next door neighbours Newtown-shandrum. This game was played in Fr. Con Bucjkley Park, Buttevant, before an attendance of 5,000 people, where Charleville won by a goal to retain the county championship. He was a member of the Cork Junior Hurling team in 1948 and played in the Munster Junior final of that year when Cork was defeated by Limerick in Dromcollogher. Mossy was, for many years, a member of the staff of the now defunct Morrissey's Provender Mill in Charleville, where as a driver he was known far and wide within the farming community, to whom he delivered animal feed in his familiar red and white liveried lorry. When he moved to live in Ballyhea, he joined the local GAA club there and won a Cork County Junior Hurling Championship medal with the club. He was also a keen coursing and track enthusiast and, as a member of Charleville Coursing Club owned many a good greyhound. Predeceased by his wife, Mary, the affable Mossie was never in bad humour. He reared a large family in tough times and was always ready to help a neighbour in any way he could. His death leaves a void in his native town and in his adopted parish of Ballyhea. There was a large and representative attendance at both the removal of his remains to Ballyhea parish church and at the subsequent interment at St. Brighid's cemetery Buttevant. Sincere sympathy is extended to his immediate and extended families and to his large circle of friends. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam.
