Dungarvan GAA extends its sincere sympathy to the family of Terry Donnolly, Connolly Row who died today Monday November 4th.
Terry was 95 years old and he was the last surviving member of the Dungarvan Four in a row County senior football champions from 1945 to 1948 where he played at wing back in wins over Stradbally, Kilrossanty and Fenor. Terry followed the fortunes of the Dungarvan club all of his life.
