David Martin was born in Belfast on the 1st February 1914. A centre-forward he played amateur football for the Royal Ulster Rifles, Cliftonville and Belfast Celtic.

Major Frank Buckley, the manager of Wolverhampton Wanderers, signed Martin in 1934. He joined a team that included Billy Wrigglesworth, Tom Galley, Billy Hartill, Stan Cullis, Bryn Jones, Tom Smalley, Dai Richards, Billy Barraclough, Reg Hollingsworth and Charlie Phillips.

In the 1934-35 season Wolves finished in 17th place in the First Division winning only 15 of their 42 games. Billy Hartill was again top scorer with 33 goals. At the end of the season Buckley upset the Wolves' fans by selling Hartill to Everton. A few months later he sold Charlie Phillips to Aston Villa for £9,000. It seemed that Buckley and the Wolves board were more concerned with making a profit than winning the First Division championship.

David Martin now replaced Billy Hartill as centre-forward in the team. He did well that season scoring 17 goals in 25 appearances. However, Wolves continued to struggle and in the 1935-36 season finishing in 15th place, only five points above the relegated teams, Aston Villa and Blackburn Rovers.

In 1936 Martin was sold to Nottingham Forest in the Second Division. Although he was unable to get them promoted to the First Division over the next two seasons he had the excellent record of scoring 41 goals in 81 appearances.

Martin joined Notts County in 1938 but his career was interrupted by the outbreak of the Second World War. He retired from professional football in 1945. Martin had the outstanding record of 77 goals in 144 games.

David Martin died in 1991.

Through decades of change and growth, the University has held true to its Benedictine values &ndash community, hospitality, stewardship, listening and dignity of work, among others &ndash which remain central to life at Saint Martin&rsquos.

1890's & 1900's

From parochial beginnings to an incipient college

Photo: Old Main at Saint Martin's University in 1895.

  • 1893 - The site of the University and that of its founder, Saint Martin&rsquos Abbey, is selected by Abbot Bernard Locnikar, O.S.B., of Minnesota's Saint John's Abbey, Saint Martin's Abbey&rsquos mother house. The location sits on 300 acres of peaceful woodlands, meadows and meandering trails.
  • 1894 - On April 21, the parcel that later becomes the Saint Martin&rsquos campus is purchased for $6,920 at a public auction.
  • 1895 - Work begins on Saint Martin&rsquos first building in January, and a four story structure housing both the school and a monastery are completed by late summer. Saint Martin's opens its doors Sept. 11, 1895 for a single student, Angus McDonald, who reportedly travels by canoe from Shelton, some 25 miles away. He is joined by several more students in the following weeks, but until their arrival, receives a full course of high school level classes as the school&rsquos lone enrollee. As with other 19th century American Benedictine schools, the new College enrolls mostly boys and young men between the ages of 10 and 20. Both boarders and "day scholars" are accepted and taught from a curriculum of preparatory and high school classes, plus classical and commercial college courses.
  • 1897 - 29 grammar and high school students are attending Saint Martin's.
  • 1900 - College-level courses are added in to provide the necessary education for candidates planning to enter the Benedictine priesthood.
  • 1903 - "A special building for lay brothers and workers," designed and built by the industrious Father Ulric, is built to the northeast of the original College building.
  • 1904 - A forty-four by sixty-six feet, four story addition is attached to the north side of the 1895 original College structure to double the dining room space and provide room for a "spacious" chapel on the second level. In May, Saint Martin's acquires the services of three Benedictine Sisters from Saint Gertrude's Convent in Cottonwood, Idaho to run its kitchen department.
  • 1905 - The College employs its first lay teacher, Mr. Charles Hoffman. The first gymnasium is built east of the hill.
  • 1906 - Father Sebastian Ruth becomes the first priest specifically ordained for Saint Martin's. Saint Martin's first intramural sports are introduced, including baseball, basketball, handball, tennis and bowling.

1910's & 1920's

From a good cause in the West to an adolescent institution

  • 1914 - Abbot Oswald Baran is elected by his fellow monks to be Saint Martin's first abbot. The first edition of The Martian, a 70 page quarterly publication appears under the asupices of Father Sebastian Ruth and contains fiction, poetry and general campus news.

  • 1918 - The eight-foot memorial statue of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in front of Old Main is donated by the men participating in Saint Martin's first Laymen's Retreat (popular spiritual exercises held in Lacey every summer until 1956).
  • 1919 - On Oct. 6, a tragic fire destroys the new gymanisum.
  • 1920 - On Oct. 9, two thousand people hear a speech by Robert Bridges, Farmer-Labor Party nominee for governor who is denied use of the Olympia High School auditorium. No other hall in the capital city is large enough to accomodate the anticipated crowd.
  • 1921 - Father Sebastian's "hobby" radio station develops into a part-time, licensed broadcasting station and is assigned the call letters KGY.
  • 1925 - Father Sebastian inaugurates a campus yearbook, the Marian Annual.
  • 1926 - Athletic teams join a conference (Washington-Oregon Conference) for the first time.
  • 1927 - the yearbook is renamed the Samarco.

Senior Football (Club)

Club Championship Senior Football Cup: Michael O’Connor Cup presented by Munster Council in 1991 to commemorate late Chairman & Treasurer.

Holders: Nemo Rangers, Cork (Captained by Barry O’Driscoll)

The Club Championships were inaugurated in 1964 for the 1964 champions of each county. Though the inaugural championship was not completed in Football until Easter Sunday 1966, for our records below this was the 1964 championship. In subsequent years also the championships were not always completed within the current year but as the competition is for the club champions of each year we feel that the result should reflect that year and not the year the championship finished.

David Martin footballer - History


Raya was born in Barcelona, beginning his football career with UE Cornella before moving to join Blackburn Rovers in July 2012.

He made his way through the club&rsquos academy before signing a professional contract, aged 18, at Ewood Park. Conference Premier side Southport took him on loan for the 2014-15 season, giving him First Team experience before he returned to Rovers.

He made his professional debut in a 3-0 win over Leeds United at Elland Road on 5 April 2015, describing the experience as &lsquoa dream start&rsquo. He would play for a second time on the final day of that campaign, a 3-2 win over Ipswich Town.

For the next two years he battled Jason Steele for the number one jersey, making 13 appearances as the side were relegated out of the second tier.

Despite losing the first two games of the 2017/18 season, with Raya as first choice Blackburn finished second behind Wigan Athletic in League One. He made 45 league appearances in what would become his breakthrough season, staying in place for the following Championship campaign.

Rovers ended the year in 15th before Raya joined Brentford for an undisclosed fee, swapping Ewood Park for West London after 108 appearances during his time in Lancashire.

Irish FA's David Martin issues football for all message after landing Fifa vice-presidency amid European Super League storm

New Fifa vice-president David Martin says he felt 'humbled' to be voted into the prestigious role, declaring that his aim was to emulate the sterling work of fellow Northern Ireland men Harry Cavan and Jim Boyce, who previously held the position.

M artin was elected at Uefa's Congress in Switzerland on what turned out to be a seismic day for football with the European Super League seemingly falling apart with Manchester City out and Chelsea preparing to withdraw from the competition which had initially been supported by them, Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester United, Tottenham, Real Madrid, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Juventus, Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.

The Irish FA president was pressed several times on the Super League issue in a media briefing but insisted last night was not the time to talk about the proposed breakaway league, which has been widely condemned by organisations and clubs across the globe.

Martin would only go as far as to say that he believed football was for all from amateurs to professionals.

Dromore, Co Down man Martin (67) gained 48 out of 55 votes in the election, comfortably defeating FA of Wales president Kieran O'Connor and Scottish FA vice-president Mike Mulraney for the two-year term and an annual salary of £190,000.

The post became available following the resignation of FA chairman Greg Clarke in November and with it comes a place on the powerful Fifa Council.

"It's exciting for me. There's the personal element because it is a big honour but it is also big for the Irish Football Association and Northern Ireland football."

Martin, who lost a vote to Clarke for the Fifa vice-president post in 2019, added: "I've been elected by my peers. That's magnificent and very humbling.

"This position is a Uefa position as part of a team of nine who attend Fifa Council. I will be working as a team player within that team at Fifa for the good of European football and world football.

"Northern Ireland is a small nation of 1.9m people and considered one of the smaller associations. It's a significant position for any association to hold.

"I'm following two men from Northern Ireland who also held this position, most recently Jim Boyce and the late Harry Cavan. If I can do half the job those guys did, I will have done well."

Quizzed on the European Super League, Martin stated they were 'questions for another day', preferring to talk about a successful period for Northern Ireland football, hailing the 'two super Tuesdays' with his election and the women's team qualifying for Euro 2022 last week, plus a 'super Sunday' when manager Brendan Rodgers and defender Jonny Evans helped Leicester into the FA Cup final.

Martin has had a rollercoaster ride to this point. In 2010 he was removed from his position of IFA treasurer by then Sports Minister Nelson McCausland, who deemed the organisation not fit for purpose.

Martin and Raymond Kennedy, who left his role as IFA president at the time, had been strongly criticised in an independent report into the departure of chief executive Howard Wells, who took an unfair dismissal case that cost the IFA £500,000.

Determined to return to the IFA, Martin failed three competency tests carried out by independent commissions, as requested by government when anyone wished to become an office bearer in the association. That criteria was changed at the 2013 IFA AGM, leading to Martin being elected deputy IFA president before becoming IFA president in 2016. He will leave that role later this year.

Martin has proved to be an able president and under his watch the new-look Windsor Park has opened, the association successfully staged the Women's European Under-17 finals and the Irish FA won the right to stage the Uefa Super Cup at the national stadium in August.

On his extraordinary journey, the Dromore native said: "It has been 50 years, 10 as a player with my hometown club and 40 in administration, whether it be the Northern Amateur Football League, County Antrim FA or Irish Football Association. This is an extension of what I've done in the last 40 years.

"If you take football at world level in any association you will have your top line professional game but you will also have the amateur game. The game is for everyone, and whatever level you obtain or aspire to attain at Fifa it is the pyramid right from the professional game to the amateur game, and that's what I am. I grew up in the amateur game."

David Martin

David Martin CBS News

David Martin has been CBS News' national security correspondent, covering the Pentagon and the State Department, since 1993. In that capacity, he has reported virtually every major defense, intelligence and international affairs story for the "CBS Evening News," as well as for other broadcasts, including "60 Minutes" and "48 Hours." He also contributed to "60 Minutes Wednesday."

During the invasion of Afghanistan and the war in Iraq, Martin's in-depth knowledge of how the State Department, intelligence community and military operate, both on the battlefield and in Washington positioned him as the "big picture" reporter for CBS News. Utilizing his own sources and reports from CBS News correspondents in the region and around the world, as well as in Washington, he explained and assessed the military's strategies and operations for viewers.

Martin broke several significant stories before and during the Iraq war. He was the first to report on the opening night of the war, that the U.S. was launching a strike on a palace bunker in southern Baghdad in an attempt to take out Saddam Hussein. Martin also broke the story of the military's "shock and awe" strategy for its initial strike on Baghdad. During a trip to Iraq in May 2003, he was the first journalist to visit and report on Dora Farms, where Saddam was said by the CIA to have been hiding on the opening night of the war.

Martin has received several Emmys, most recently in 2012 for his story "Starting Over." He has also received two Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards (2002 and 2004) for his body of work, most of which has appeared on the "CBS Evening News" and "60 Minutes Wednesday."

Regarding the first Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Award, the award committee said that his "consistently excellent reporting on the beat of national security hit its peak this year. break[ing] news on a wide range of defense and security stories with details that only experience and doggedness can ferret out. This is exemplary reporting that repeatedly breaks through the barriers of official statements."

In awarding the second DuPont, the committee said, "David Martin's reports on the Pentagon, the military build-up to the Iraq war and on the war itself demonstrate his exceptional grasp of national security issues. Teamed with his long-time producer, Mary Walsh, Martin consistently breaks new information with clear reporting on the Pentagon's goals. He exemplifies the role of a journalist: to measure what we are being told against what we find out."

Martin also received the 2004 Joan S. Barone Award for excellence in Washington-based national affairs and public policy reporting awarded by the Washington Radio & Television Correspondents' Association.

He joined CBS News as its Pentagon correspondent in 1983. Martin's duties later expanded to include the State Department and intelligence beats.

Before that, he covered defense and intelligence matters for Newsweek magazine from its Washington bureau (1977-83). Martin was a reporter with the Associated Press in Washington (1973-77), covering the FBI and CIA. He also was a member of the AP special assignment team (1977).

Martin began his journalism career as a researcher for CBS News in New York in 1969. He then became a news writer with the AP broadcast wire (1971-72) and a fellow at the Washington Journalism Center (1973).

Martin is the author of two books, "Wilderness of Mirrors" (Harper & Row, 1980), an account of the secret wars between the CIA and KGB, and "Best Laid Plans: The Inside Story of America's War Against Terrorism" (Harper & Row, 1988).

He was born July 28, 1943, in Washington, D.C. He graduated from Yale University in 1965 with a bachelor's degree in English. During the Vietnam War, Martin served as an officer aboard a U.S. Navy destroyer.

Martin and his wife, Dr. Elinor Martin, live in Chevy Chase, Md. They have four children.

‘Irresponsible’: Historians attack David Garrow’s MLK allegations

Two years ago, renowned historian David J. Garrow was dismissive of newly released FBI files claiming Martin Luther King Jr. was a “whole-hearted” communist.

“The number one thing I’ve learned in 40 years of doing this,” Garrow said in an interview with The Washington Post, “is just because you see it in a top-secret document, just because someone had said it to the FBI, doesn’t mean it’s all accurate.”

Garrow, 66, who won a Pulitzer Prize for “Bearing the Cross,” his 1986 biography of King, noted that FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover was out to discredit the civil rights leader and said FBI files should be treated with skepticism.

As he faces a wave of criticism from other historians for an essay published Thursday in Standpoint, a conservative British cultural magazine, he now says some FBI files are more reliable than others.

Garrow claims new evidence shows King, whose extramarital affairs have long been known, was a “sexual libertine,” alleging sexual activities with dozens of women and describing them in graphic detail. One of the claims would constitute a crime if true.

His evidence? FBI files purported to be summaries of recordings of King and his colleagues in the 1960s when their rooms were being bugged and phones wiretapped by Hoover. The summaries were apparently inadvertently included in the John F. Kennedy files maintained by the National Archives and released online in 2017 and 2018. Garrow discovered the inadvertent release.

It is not known whether tapes and transcripts that correspond to the summaries exist. All of the King recordings are under court seal at the National Archives until Jan. 31, 2027. Garrow acknowledges that he has not listened to them or viewed transcripts. But he argues the new documents pose “so fundamental a challenge to [King’s] historical stature as to require the most complete and extensive historical review possible.”

Garrow’s willingness to believe that the FBI summaries are accurate is being questioned by other historians. At the time the reports were made, the FBI was engaged in a years-long disinformation campaign to undermine King’s standing and at one point encouraged him to kill himself.

The King Center in Atlanta declined to comment on Garrow’s essay.

In a statement provided to The Post, King’s personal lawyer Clarence B. Jones vociferously denied the claims, adding, “J. Edgar Hoover is laughing in his grave today.”

Donna Murch, a Rutgers University historian who specializes in the civil rights movement, said the story had a “strange trail of evidence … that seems just very, very flimsy to me.”

The most incendiary claim is made in a handwritten notation by an unknown person on one of the typed summaries. If accurate, the notation indicates that King was witness to a sexual assault.

“I would question the veracity of an anonymous, handwritten note on an FBI report,” said Yale historian Glenda Gilmore, who has worked extensively with FBI reports on civil rights activists. Files such as these contain “a great deal of speculation, interpolation from snippets of facts, and outright errors.”

Johns Hopkins University historian Nathan Connolly, who has also examined FBI files, said, “I would be deeply suspicious.”

That the allegations “can just be put out there by a historian as if it happened is obviously the height of being archivally irresponsible,” Connolly said.

In 1981, Garrow published a book about King and the FBI, chronicling many of the tactics the FBI used to surveil and attack King. In the other sections of the Standpoint article, he further details some of those tactics, using documents he discovered in the JFK files.

Despite this, he thinks the summaries made by FBI agents who were spying on King are accurate, he said in an interview with The Post. Different types of records warrant different levels of trust in their accuracy, he said. The files claiming King was communist “are coming literally third- or fourth-hand from a human informant,” he said, so their accuracy is “highly dubious.”

“But with the electronic surveillance records, those are very highly reliable, other than when the FBI can’t understand who’s talking,” Garrow said.

Connolly disagreed, saying the culture of the FBI at the time was that agents were “sent out with marching orders, not simply to recount what is happening on the ground.”

Gilmore said the same: “Often agents and informers were writing toward an overarching narrative that clearly impacted their judgment and activated their impulse to please their superiors in Washington.”

“I have no way of knowing if these reports represent the reality that will be revealed when the tapes of King speaking or the audios on the recorded incidents are opened to researchers,” Gilmore said. “But neither could Garrow.”

Garrow has come under attack from other historians before. In 2017, his biography of former president Barack Obama, “Rising Star,” was also a source of controversy for its harsh tone, and for Garrow’s swipes at other Obama biographers.

Post associate editor David Maraniss, author of “Barack Obama: The Story,” tweeted at the time that Garrow was a “vile, undercutting, ignoble competitor unlike any I’ve encountered.”

But Garrow said “close to three dozen” historians, authors and journalists had read his article before it published “and are 100 percent supportive” and had given him “zero criticism.” He said that “if random people who spend their time on Twitter are unhappy about it,” then “their unhappiness is with the JFK Records Act and the National Archives.”

Garrow listed Yale historian Beverly Gage as one of his supporters. But when she was contacted by The Post, Gage, who is writing a biography of Hoover, cautioned: “This information was initially gathered as part of a deliberate and aggressive FBI campaign to discredit King. That doesn’t necessarily mean that the information is false. But it does mean that we should read the documents in that context, understanding that the FBI was looking for information that it could weaponize and was viewing events through the lens of its own biases and agenda.”

In 1956, Hoover initiated a counterintelligence program, known as Cointelpro, that sought to surveil, infiltrate and discredit suspected communists and, later, civil rights leaders. Starting in 1963, the FBI wiretapped King’s home and office and bugged his hotel rooms.

In November 1964, Hoover publicly called King “the most notorious liar in the country.” A few days later, King’s wife, Coretta Scott King, received an anonymous letter sent to the King home. The author, who claimed to be African American, accused Martin Luther King of being a “a colossal fraud” and “a dissolute, abnormal moral imbecile.” The letter suggested King would be exposed unless he killed himself. The letter came in a package that also allegedly included audio evidence of King’s infidelity.

Brandon Martin’s Career

Brandon Willie Martin was born on August 24, 1993. The California native and his brother, Sean, are the sons of Michael and Melody Martin. Martin is biracial, and allegedly struggled with his identity.

Brandon had been a top baseball prospect since he was a student at Santiago High School. His teammates believed he would be the next Derek Jeter.

Sure enough, the Tampa Bay Rays signed Martin in the 2011 MLB draft. He was the 38th pick overall and had a promising future that started with a $1.0 million signing bonus. His contract also included $144,000 to go towards his college education.

But his playing career, short as it was, was rife with excessive splurging, prosecutors said. The money and fame went to 18-year-old Brandon’s head, per the DA’s trial brief.

He was renting expensive homes and buying cars for himself and his parents. But worst of all, he was getting addicted to drugs and alcohol, the brief said.

After moving from the minor leagues to the majors, Brandon was playing well until 2013, when he suffered a fracture in his thumb. After recovering, he was assigned to the Bowling Green Hot Rods in Kentucky.

Hay Player

On turning 80, David Hockney sought out rustic tranquillity for the first time: a place to watch the sunset and the changing seasons a place to enjoy simple pleasures, undisturbed and undistracted: "We have lost touch with nature rather foolishly as we are a part of it, not outside it". So when Covid-19 and lockdown struck, it made little difference to life at the centuries-old Normandy farmhouse where he had set up a studio the previous year, in time to paint the arrival of spring. In fact, he relished the enforced isolation. His book affirms the capacity of art to divert and inspire, based on a wealth of conversations and correspondence with Martin Gayford, his long-time collaborator. Their exchanges are illustrated by a selection of Hockney’s new Normandy drawings and paintings, many previously unpublished. Martin Gayford is art critic of The Spectator. His books include A History of Pictures (with David Hockney) and Shaping the World: Sculpture from Pre-History to Now (with Antony Gormley).
