NOT for PROFIT VOLUNTEER FOUNDATION: 2006 - 2023 Re-Launch
In July 2006 two former Passage West, Co. Cork, Ireland,1950's classmates, Derry JF Doody and Tony Leahy,R.I.P. linked up to pioneer a Not for Profit Community Hall of Fame website enabled by volunteer writers and production personnel. The focus was the Online honouring of Irish legends of SportsLife, MusicLife and HeritageLife, with special emphasis on Ireland's Uncelebrated heroes who were worthy of greater Recognition/Appreciation.Poshumous Hall of Fame Tributes also featured in many instances. All production volunteers involved were lifetime Sports, Music and HeritageLife enthusiasts over many decades.
Prior to 2006 www.ScoreBoardMemories.com was previously honouring on 'exclusively special occasions' a unique Collection of former G.A.A. players and Town/Village Community Volunteers for their outstanding Sports and Community services over many years.
Meantime the requirement of an Online Hall Of Fame facility to provide greater local, national and global recognition for inductees honoured was a major missing link. The enrolment of Tony in 2006 as a managerial production volunteer enabled the foundation of Not for Profit Volunteer projects i.e. "All Ireland SportsLife; HeritageLife and MusicLife Online Galleries under the domain of www.ScoreBoardMemories.com.
May 2020 Passing of Co-Founder Tony:
During the worldwide devastation of Covid in the fall of 2019, www.ScoreBoardMemories.com also suffered the devastating news on Friday 22nd May 2020, that co-founder Tony at 74, decided to end his own life. Also in May 2020 a staunch music and events colleague of our group and a famous Cork G.A.A. supporter, Tim (Jonty) O'Leary, also passed away from a cancer illness.The entire volunteer led project went in to great mourning for our colleagues, Tony and Jonty, and in July 2022, a further great loss to the group occured with the death of volunteer, Frank Murphy, native of Rochestown and resident of Blackrock. Frank's wife, Marie, was also an outstanding volunteer colleague on presentation events.
Health is wealth again intervened throughout 2022 as Derry and his wife, Eileen, fought a long and arduous health battle and in late 2022, Derry made the difficult decision to relaunch and also commemorate Tony, Jonty and Frank, (all R.I.P.) memory by rebuilding Not for Profit www.ScoreBoardMemories.com Cork, Ireland, through the Google and Facebook global facilities.
It was also decided to instigate a 2023 Special Cork Volunteer Award to commemorate former colleagues, Tony, Frank and Jonty in conjuction with the launch of our Facebook new project - Cork Online Hall Of Fame Award.
With Cork as the founding homeplace, the new Volunteer award will be inscribed as "Tony; Jonty & Frank Award" focusing on all Cork Community Volunteers worthy of consideration.
