Anglesboro native and former Limerick football star, John Quane and former Cork hurling star, Charlie McCarthy are the latest Munster legends to be inducted into the Hall of Fame, it was announced this Wednesday.

The two greats will receive their awards at the Munster GAA Awards Gala Dinner on this  Saturday, December 10th in Rochestown Park Hotel, Cork.

John Quane was an ever present member of the Limerick senior football teams for 14 years from 1991 to 2005. The inspirational midfielder played in the 1991 Munster senior football final against Kerry in Killarney in his first year on the senior team.

He was a cornerstone of the teams that came so near to winning the Munster finals of 2003 and 2004. His heroic performances merited an All Star nomination in 2002.

John represented Munster in the Railway Cup on numerous occasions, a highlight being his contribution to the 1999 win. A career highlight was his selection for the International Rules Series in 1999.

John won his sole Limerick senior football championship with Glenacurrane Rovers in 1991 and his clean sweep of county medals was completed by Galtee Gaels winning the junior championship in 1988 and the intermediate title in 1993.

A true legend of Limerick football, John will go down as one of the best to have worn the green and white.

Other 2016 award winners also announced today are Micheál Mac Conmara of An Clár who receives the Special Service Award for his long and distinguished service to Scór; Cork’s Michael Hurley for Under 21 football, Clare’s David Conroy of Clare for intermediate hurling and Jamie Lee of Limerick for junior football.
