Sadly this week the club lost our President Tony Roche. Tony at the age of 78 played for club and county, winning a Munster Minor medal in 1963, Club Chairman in the 2000’s and County Bord na nOg Chairman for many years and honoured with the title of President of County Bord na nOg. To Mary and Una, Anton, Mike and Aoife and their families, his sisters Eithne and Joan and all his friends we extend our sympathies.
John Slattery and Elaine Tobin and their families also suffered bereavement this week when their sister Anne died in Wexford. To all the Slattery families we extend our sympathy.
