Terence Chisholm

Terence Chisholm

 On the 6th of November 1999, Terence Chisholm "Chissie" died unexpectedly on his way home from town with friends having just started his Christmas shopping. His loss was felt most by Liz his mother, Lillian & Louise his two sisters & John, Colm and Louis his three brothers.

 

From a Cork GAA and Glen Rovers / St Nick's sporting perspective, his loss was huge. Terence had all the attributes not just to become a senior inter county hurler for Cork but to be a key player on the team also. Terence joined Glen Rovers at the age of 7 playing with his team called Cathedral. This was the beginning of his GAA sporting career. He position was centre back in both codes and a better player you could not find in that position. His short career was a successful won. He won hurling medals at street league, under 12, 13, Feile na Gael at 14, 15, 16 and premiership minor plus an All Ireland U14 Football Feile na Gael in his short career. He represented Seandun and Cork at under age and played Intermediate hurling for Glen Rovers while U17.

 

He was a talent for the future and a role model for his team mates. His natural ability for sport, his team spirit, his discipline on the pitch and his overall enjoyment of the sport was something to be admired. It is a fitting tribute to both Terence and his family that now 10 years on, Terence's memory is still fresh in our mind. This is acknowledged by the fact that this U15 12 A-Side hurling Tournament is being held in his memory and as a tribute to this young man who left a positive impression on all those who met him in his short life.
