Paddy Kelly won the title with his two brothers, Brian and John.

BALLINCOLLIG ENDED THEIR 127 year wait for a Cork SFC title after beating Carbery Rangers in the final yesterday. Cork’s John Miskella (36) won his first county football title after 19 years with the club.

It was also a special day for the Kelly family as brothers Paddy, Brian and John all played for Ballincollig. John Kelly scored a crucial goal and he had just returned from his honeymoon for the game.

Their father, John, won a Cork intermediate title with Ballincollig in 1994, and twenty years on his sons helped win the club’s first senior title.
