Waterford hurling has lost another of it’s heroes this morning as the death of Mick Flannelly has been announced.
Mick scored 1-1 from half-forward in the 1959 All-Ireland Final replay win over Kilkenny in Croke Park. He also won three senior Munster titles and a National League title with the Déise. He also represented Munster.

In a glittering club career he won 25 adult county medals. 15 senior hurling (playing in 18 finals), three minor hurling, four senior football and three junior football.
He worked for many years in Crokers’ Printers.
Mick is sadly missed by his loving wife Patty, daughters Joanne and Críona, grandchildren Joseph and Ruairí, sons-in-law Dominic and James, nephews, nieces, extended family, relatives, neighbours and friends.
