Tony Grace RIP
The late Tony Grace, Ballycapple was a member of the Kilruane MacDonaghs minor panel that won the club’s inaugural divisional title in that grade with a victory over Nenagh in 1952. Tony had a great interest in hunting and shooting and the rural way of life had great appeal for him. Club members formed a guard of honour at his funeral and his coffin was draped in the MacDonaghs colours. To his family and friends sympathy is extended.
Sympathy is extended to Mary Walsh, Step Road, Cloughjordan on the death of her mother Teresa Carroll, Knock, Roscrea and to the family of the late Michael White, MacDonagh Avenue and formerly Lacka, Carrig, Birr.
