Trivia: David Gleeson was the third player from Ballinahinch to be involved with Tipperary in an All-Ireland minor final. His brother Dermot Gleeson was involved when Tipperary lost to Galway in 1999. In 1962 Martin O’Brien was involved when Tipperary lost to Kilkenny. Davy joins Ballinahinch players Ger Griffin (‘01), Dermot Gleeson (‘97 +’99), Jimmy Ryan (’73) and Martin O’Brien (’62) in winning a Munster minor title.
