Paddy was part of the fabric of Old Bridge

It was with great sadness that the Old Bridge community heard of the death of Paddy Fitzgerald. Paddy was the last surviving member of the original committee for Edel Quinn Park. He was a valued member of the community and a familiar figure up to a few months ago, walking with his little dog. A great raconteur, he loved to chat about all aspects of the area of which he had great knowledge.
