After his Leaving Certificate he entered St. Patricks College Maynooth and was ordained there on 2nd June 1958.

After his ordination in 1958, he took up a teaching position at St. Mary’s College where he very quickly became a hurling mentor.

Miko McInerney

1926 -2024

Miko was born in Limepark, Ardrahan on 5th June 1926 to Tom and Annie McInerney. He attended Ardrahan National School in Labane and entered St. Mary’s College in September 1940. After his Leaving Certificate, he attended University College Galway and graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree and a H.Dip in Education. His main subjects were Irish and Geography. He spent long periods of his teaching career in Wexford CBS, St. Kieran’s Kilkenny and Ennistymon CBS.

In hurling, the past holds a rein on the present and with the news of his death, Ardrahan GAA lost its last link with the successful intermediate and senior hurling teams between 1948 and 1956. Miko was also the last surviving member of Galway’s All-Ireland final hurling team of 1953.
