The late Jim O’Meara

The death has occurred on Friday, October 19, of Jim O’Meara of St Patricks Place, Fethard. Jim was a very popular 
member of Fethard Community and very active in sporting circles, in particular, Fethard Sports Centre in the 1970s and again in 1987-88 when the season saw a very welcome revival of handball at the centre culminating in Jim O’Meara winning the Masters 40x20 County Championship title. Jim was also an active member and supporter of Fethard & Killusty Community Games, Fethard GAA and Killusty Soccer Club.

Our sympathy to his daughter Norah, sons Denis, Willie and Jimmy, extended family and friends. Interment took place in Calvary Cemetery.
