Sadly on Good Friday again this year we are mourning the loss of someone associated with the club following the death of Derry O’Leary at this time last year.
The club was saddened to hear yesterday of the death of one of our joint-Presidents in Paddy Casey of Tournamanagh. Paddy played senior football for the club between 1951 and 1959 and although it was a lean period, Paddy and his team-mates always represented the club with pride.
However it is as a loyal supporter of the club that we will most remember Paddy by. He attended most games and took such pride in seeing us win the All-Ireland Intermediate title in 2019 and he never uttered a negative sentiment about the players or club in general. He appreciated the smallest gesture and always acknowledged the importance of the work of the club in the life and youth of the parish.
Many felt his interview with Marty Morrissey the night of the 2018 social was their personal highlight and a very touching moment. Above all else Paddy will be missed for his gentle nature.
May he Rest in eternal peace.
