In 1949 he was a member of the Ireland team that defeated England 2 0 at Goodison Park, becoming the first non-UK team to beat England at home. He was the uncle of Jim, Sharon, Caroline and Andrea Corr who make up the Irish musical group The Corrs. His brother Gerry is their father. After a three-year long battle with Alzheimer’s Disease, Corr died in a nursing home in Goosnargh in June 2001, aged 77.
