The club would like to extend its sympathy to Marie and Aidan Hayes and the extended Hayes Family on the recent passing of husband and father Pa Joe. He served as club secretary for a number of years and was always willing to give a helping hand at our events. He will be sadly missed by all. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
