DEATH OF A CLUB AND COUNTY HURLING STALWART : Jack Quaid
The death has taken place of Jack Quaid late of Danganbeg Feohanagh. Jack was a stalwart for Feohanagh and Limerick for many years. His career ran parallel with that of his twin brother Jim. He won a county junior hurling title with Feohanagh in 1954. Jack played in the half back line and Jim starred at midfield. They both played with Western Gaels and lost the 1954 county final. Limerick won the All Ireland Junior hurling title in 1954 and Jack and Jim were key players. He played senior for Limerick in 1955 and they won the Munster final against Clare. Both had long and distinguished careers with Limerick. He also won a Railway Cup medal with Munster. Jack won a county cup with Feohanagh in 1964. He was a fierce competitor and well able to take care of himself. When he retired he began refereeing and gave great service to division and county. Jack was a great club man and sold the Mackey stand draw for many years. Jack had the unique distinction of being the father and grandfather of All-Star winners. Jack passed to his eternal reward on Monday 22nd February. We extend our sympathy to his family.
Limerick GAA wish like to be associated with Feohanagh-Castlemahon GAA Club in extending Sincere Sympathy to the Quaid family members .
