D. Dowling, T. Curtin, M. O’Callaghan, G. Butler, R. Hayes, G. Cullen, G. Quaid, P. McMahon, E. Moloney, J. Keane, J. Lenihan. In the event, ‘Knockaderry managed to knock up a second team and they played an entertaining friendly’. The final was eventually played on 29 June 1980 when Knockaderry won the West Minor title for the second year running by again beating Adare, 2-6 to 2-4.
In the County semi-final, Knockaderry played Castletown-Ballyagran at Dromcollogher on 15 August. This was the day after most of the same players had taken part in the county Minor football quarter final against Galbally.
