Liam MacCarthy & Sam Maguire


The names Liam MacCarthy and Sam Maguire are well known when it comes to the respective All Ireland Trophies played for in Croke Park every September, both the Liam MacCarthy Cup and the Sam Maguire Cup are named after London GAA men Their contribution to the infant days of the GAA in London is immeasurable but they achieved so much more with their inspired involvement with organisations like the IRB and the Gaelic League. Michael Collins relied on their friendship, their funds, discretion and work ethic when coming back and forth from Ireland to England. Much more is known about Liam MacCarthy because he had, and still has, many relatives in London, but sadly very little is known about Sam Maguire as Sam never married and has no known relatives. One thing for certain, their names ring out every year as the trophies are lifted by the winning counties of Ireland. At least once a year their cup still overflows. Published in a single limited edition of 650 worldwide, each print is individually numbered and signed by Brian O’Flaherty, and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist.
