Late Dinny Lonergan.
On Friday, April 29, we were saddened by Dinny’s passing at his home in Glengar just short of his 83rd birthday. He was one of nature’s true gentleman, who possessed great knowledge and was always a joy to meet. During his lifetime he was always a keen supporter of all Father Sheehy’s activities. He was Club Secretary when we annexed the County Junior Football title in 1960. A quiz enthusiast he with Jackie Condon and John Clohessey brought huge honour to the parish when they won the All Ireland Scor Question Time for Fr Sheehys and Tipperary in 1978. Before our match with Fethard on Sunday, May 1, the club held a minutes silence in his memory and at his removal on Wednesday last we preform a Guard of Honour to salute this unassuming and dignified clubman. The club extends our sympathy to the Lonergan family especially his brother Tommy. Ar dheis de go raibh a h-anam.
Sympathy - We extend our sympathy to the O’Brien Family, Rehill, and Crotty Family, Skeheen, on their recent bereavements.
