KNOCKGRAFFON COURSING CLUB

Our Club and our village are in shock at the sudden passing of our chairman of over 40 years - John Moloney. He was one of coursing great character and a true gent and kept us all going never missed a days hunting or a day at the field. No matter how wet or how cold we’d be, there was always a laugh out hunting when John was with us. One of the things was he was always in a hurry but half a hour later he’d be still telling the stories. He will be badly missed and it will never be the same without him. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and many friends. R.I.P John.
