Due to a tragic farm accident today in the Loughmore/Castleiney area, tonight’s game in Golden between Loughmore/Castleiney and Eire Og Annacarty/Donohill has been postponed.
The man in his late seventies is from Loughmore and was working on a farm close to the Upperchurch/Ballycahill boundary.
No further details are not being released at this early stage.
Tonight’s game was supposed to be the opening game of a busy weekend of Senior Football action throughout the county but in these tragic circumstances the football can wait.
Loughmore were due to begin their run for an historic first-ever three in a row following on from successess in 2015 (captained by David Kennedy) and last year when Liam McGrath captained the Mid side to lift the O’Dwyer Cup.
Understandably there is a huge sense of grief throughout the Premier County amongst all GAA fans.
