Charlie McGeever helps Clonmel Commercials to first Munster SFC club title

Charlie McGeeverFormer Finn Harps player and manager Charlie McGeever has managed Tipperary champions Clonmel Commericals to their first ever Munster Senior Football Club Championship title.

In dreadful conditions in Mallow, they beat Cork kingpins Nemo Rangers by 1-7 to 0-9 with an injury time goal from Michael Quinlivan sparking wild celebrations.

Afterwards a delighted McGeever said that this could be "the first of many steps forward" for the club.

McGeever, a noted soccer and gaelic footballer in his day, has been involved with Clonmel Commercials for over a decade.

McGeever was a key figure in the Fanad United fairytale during the club's early years in the Ulster Senior League when they enjoyed considerable success, and caused several major cup upsets.
