There is deep sadness in Limerick GAA circles this week following the sudden passing of U20 football selector Sean Holmes.

Sean, who died on Wednesday, was part of this year’s county U20 management team that led Limerick to victory over Tipperary before losing to eventual winners Kerry in the Munster semi-final. He previously served as a county minor football selector and won a Limerick SFC medal during his playing days with his native Oola in 1979.

He is survived by his wife Patricia and sons John and Alan and extended family.

Today we lost one of our Football family in Limerick. Sean Holmes was a lovely man who worked tirelessly & was fully committed to helping Limerick football move forward. A great character.
