N5S1 Pic1 When the Waterford minors lifted the Irish Press Cup last Sunday, Davy and Shelia  Corcoran from Crooke, Passage East relived an experience they had witnessed 65  years ago.
Both Davy and Shelia were in attendance at Croke Park in 1948 when Waterford’s  hurlers last won the title.
The hurling mad couple are in a rare and exclusive Waterford club as they have  witnessed Sunday’s win along with a minor and a senior win on the very same day  in 1948.
Will Waterford have to wait much longer to capture the two titles on the same day?
“Hopefully not!” laughed Davy while speaking to The Munster Express this week.
Davy recalled vivid memories of making the trip to Croke Park in 1948 as a 17 year old.
Along with his brother Michael, they cycled into Waterford City from their home in Cloghernagh along with some friends.
“We left our bicycles in Tom Ryan’s bicycle shop on Lady Lane and went to Mass in the Dominican. I can remember the priest praying for Waterford to win,” he said.
Davy then embarked on his first train journey and his first visit to Dublin.
While last weekend’s visit was vastly different to his 1948 experience, Davy was delighted that the outcome for Waterford remained positive.
“It brought back many memories,” he said.
