The club extends its sympathies to the Collins family on their recent bereavements. James, although not living in the area for many years, regularly visited Athea and had many friends in the area.
Billy returned to Athea almost thirty years ago after having worked in London, Germany and Chicago where he set up the Limerick Hurling Club.
He became Honorary President of Athea Hurling club in 2019 and gave the club great assistance in re-establishing hurling. He has been a very happy man to see Limerick Hurling at its peak over the last five years. May they rest in peace.
