Tribute-Ned McMunn RIP

Sligo County Committee was saddened to learn of the death of Edward 'Ned' McMunn, Cumann Baile Easa Dara,  who was one of six players to have the distinction of winning four Senior Championship medals in a row in the early 60s. He is best remembered for his performance in an epic encounter with Mayo in 1962, which went to a replay. The Yeats men were eventually to progress to play Roscommon but were defeated by a point when the Rossies scored a fortuitous goal in the dying minutes of the game. Roscommon went on to contest the All Ireland final when they were defeated by Kerry.
