Sean Finn Remembered – 100 Year Anniversary – 30th March 2021
Last Tuesday, March 30th, amidst the golden sunshine in Rathkeale, Sean Finn’s 100 Year Anniversary was marked in St Mary’s Cemetery. Due to the gathering restrictions that are currently in place, Paul Foley from Limerick GAA and James O’Connor of Rathkeale GAA, kicked off the short memorial in front of a very small number of representatives.
Pat Sheahan laid a photograph of Sean Finn, while John Cregan, chairman of Limerick GAA laid a wreath in his honour. Fr Willie Russell proceeded to say a few words of prayer before blessing the grave.
Liam Lenihan,Chairman of the Munster Council and Mike O’Riordan, Secretary of Limerick GAA were also present on this special day. Other representation from Rathkeale GAA included Mary Liston, Mike Dillon, Jim ‘Blackie’ McEnery, Deane Maune & David Gilbourne.
