Dermot J. Gilitinan Memorial Match

Monday, July 11th, 2022

As President of Cork County Cricket Club for the 2022 season, I would like to take this opportunity to cordially invite you to the Memorial Match for our late esteemed member Dermot J. Giltinan between a Cork County XI and an Ed Joyce XI on Wednesday, 27th July, starting at 2 p.m.

However, it is not merely another match. It will be a further celebration of Dermot’s life and his immense contribution to Cork, Munster and Irish cricket over the years. It will counterpoint the Memorial Service held for Dermot at the club on Saturday afternoon, 9th April, which was so wonderfully organised by our very own Ali Khan.

It will be an opportunity for you to renew acquaintances with old friends and meet new ones. The match will be augmented by a Q & A session conducted by our old friend Alan Lewis and the man answering the questions will, of course, be Ed Joyce, another old friend of Dermot and the club.

In conclusion, I look forwards to seeing you and your family on the day if you can make it.

With warmest personal regards.

Yours sincerely,

Mortimer Kelleher
President

 

Dermot Giltinan Memorial Match

Dermot ‘Galty’ Giltinan RIP

Thursday, October 14th, 2021

The club is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Dermot Giltinan overnight.

Our deepest condolences to his sister Deirdre, brother Noel, extended family, and friends at this time. Galty will be sorely missed at the Mardyke. 

To say we have lost a β€˜Legend’ today does not do justice to Dermot’s legacy at the Mardyke and for Munster cricket as a whole throughout his life.

He was a mentor, teammate, friend, volunteer, supporter and above all a genuine and loyal cricket lover. You will be greatly missed!
