Mirl (Red) McCarthy
A key person in the development of the sport in its earliest days, Red was the man responsible for organizing the very first ringette game ever played. Red wrote the first rules of ringette and was the individual to recommend stick colours to identify positions. Red worked for many years with the local association in his home town of Espanola, Ontario.
Red was a key figure in many sports and youth activities in Northern Ontario and was the Recreation Director for Espanola for 41 years.
