PATTY QUIRKE R.I.P.
The death occurred recently of Patricia Quirke, 4 Lios Mhuire, Clogheen, after an illness bravely borne. Patty as she was affectionately known was the last of the original key holders of Lios Mhuire. Pattie enjoyed life to the full while she could but as of late her health was not the best, she still kept her finger on the pulse and was well up to speed with all that was going on. She is survived by her daughters Carmel, Patricia, Betty, Margaret and Deirdre, sons Noel, Thomas, Billy and Eugene and all her extended family. Removal took place from her son Billy’s house to Clogheen Church on Wednesday, following requiem mass she was laid to rest beside her late husband Tom in Shanrahan Cemetery. Rest in peace.
A table quiz was held in the Village Inn, Ballylooby, last week to raise funds for the under 18 Cahir Park AFC team who will be visiting Fulham soccer Academy in April. Thanks to Tom Fahey for sponsoring the first prize. €600 was raised.

VEE ROVERS F.C.
U13s were home to Clonmel Town B in the Tipperary Cup. Three first half goals from Cian Murphy gave a half-time lead and a cool finish from Shane Cross near the end ensured our passage into the next round.
The Juniors were home to Clerihan in a League fixture. Jimmi Haddu scored after 3 minutes. Cathal Moloney in the home goal saved a penalty. Darren Hannigan scored for Rovers to double the lead. Two valuable points gained to keep promotion hopes alive.
With sadness we learned of the death of Patricia (Pattie) Quirke. The Quirke name has been synonymous with Vee Rovers since its foundation, her family playing roles at all levels. Though getting on in years she took great pleasure in recent times from the exploits of her grandchildren for the Club.
