The club extends its sincere sympathy to the family of Maurice Hackett, Fitzgerald’s Tce, who died recently. Maurice’s son Patsy played in goal for us in our junior hurling and intermediate championship winning teams of 1975 and 1978.
Sympathy is also extended to the Kyne family of the death of Nurse Mary. Mary’s dad Tom served as secretary and chairman of our club in the 1930’s and 40’s as well as being chairman of the Western Board.
The death of Teresa Kiely, The Orchard, robbed the club of one of our best supporters over the years. Sincere sympathy is extended to Jimmy and family at this sad time for them.
50 YEARS WED
Congratulations to our club president Margaret Cunningham, O Connell St. and her husband Jim who celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary over Christmas. Margaret never misses a game we play in whatever the grade.
ON THE INJURED LIST
Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Darragh Lyons and Michael Kiely who received serious injuries playing for the County hurling and football teams respectively last week.
A big welcome is extended to David Hayes and Ryan Duggan who transferred to the club for this year’s championships.
Congratulations to Patricia Silke, who was elected chairperson of our juvenile sub committee at our recent adult club meeting.
