Michael Cuddy, class '51 -

The Union was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Michael Cuddy (class '51), brother of Robert (Bobby) (class '52), father of John (class '79) and uncle of Noel (class '79).

Michael played in three Leinster Cup winning campaigns with Bective Rangers. In 1958 he made his debut for Leinster, an ever present member of the side for three seasons. Further honours followed with three Irish trials and he was substitute twice for Ireland.

He was also a noted administrator, 10 years the Bective representative on the Leinster Branch before becoming chairman of the selection committee at a time when the province won four interprovincial titles. He chaired the national selection committee in 1984-85, coinciding with Ireland's last Triple Crown success.
