This coming Saturday two special tribute games will be played to honour the late, great, Teddy McCarthy.

The Sarsfields and Glanmire clubman remains the only player in the history of the GAA to win All Ireland Senior Hurling and Football Championship medals in the same year - when the footballers beat Meath and the hurlers beat Galway in 1990.

Teddy passed away this year at the age of 57, and now Cork GAA will honour him with two games in Páirc uí Chaoimh on Saturday.

The current Cork footballers will face Meath at 3pm, while the hurlers will face Galway at 5pm.

Captains of the Cork teams in 1990, Tomás Mulcahy and Larry Tompkins, joined Ruairi to talk about Saturday's game, and remember their team mate. Press play below.

The day will begin with a function for Teddy's colleagues from the 1990 teams, who will also be introduced to the crowd at half-time in the respective games. Mini-games will include Glanmire Ladies Football, Sarsfields and Passage Underage teams as well as the North Mon first years.

Also on the day, a series of interviews will take place with some of Teddy's former colleagues and opponents at a special event in the Seandún room.

Match tickets are priced €20 and €17 (OAPs & students) and are available to purchase on the Cork GAA website.  All U16s are free.  All proceeds go to the Teddy McCarthy Memorial Fund, and full details are available here

The game against Meath’s footballers will throw-in at 3pm, while the game against Galway’s hurlers will throw in at 5pm. Specially commissioned memorial trophies will be presented to the winners of each game.
