Ray Cummins was the bulwark at full-forward, flanked by Seanie O'Leary and Charlie McCarthy for each of those successes. Between them, they amassed 3-23 in the three final victories over Wexford (twice) and Kilkenny.

O'Leary's 1-2 in the 1977 final was particularly noteworthy for the fact that he lined out despite breaking his nose after being struck by a sliotar during the warm-up, with Cork selector Christy Ring famously reminding him that "you don't hurl with your nose" as he received treatment.

IN MEMORIAM - Leslie West

Ten months before Mountain’s Top 40 debut with the powerful “Mississippi Queen,” the band performed “For Yasgur’s Farm” and eight more songs at Woodstock. In our 2009 Woodstock 40th anniversary interview article, guitarist and vocalist Leslie West told Goldmine, “We were performing at the Fillmore West and Winterland in California, heard about what was going on back east, and knew we were going to it. We had to rent our own helicopter, because there was no way we were getting upstate in New York with the freeway closed. I almost fell out of the helicopter when I saw all those people. All of a sudden, in the middle of nowhere, you saw a city. It was something else. I was really nervous. When I did my guitar solo, it sounded pretty loud.
