Seamus Dunne RIP

The club extends sympathy to the family of the late Seamus Dunne, Old Post Office, Carney and formerly Cloughkeating. He was goalkeeper on the Kilruane MacDonaghs U15 team that won the 1961 North final with a victory over Moneygall in Nenagh. On the path to the final Kilruane overcame Lorrha, Borrisokane and Newport. According to the match report, the Kilruane MacDonaghs team lined out as follows in the final: Seamus Dunne, Finbar Oakley, Billy Hyland, Jim Reddan, Paddy O’Meara, Sean White, Billy O’Shea, Jim McLoughney (Capt), Brendan Dwan, Jimmy Minogue, John Joe Hyland, Paddy Peters, Sean Óg Dwan, Raphael Ryan, Denis Casey. Subs: John Reddan, Paddy Williams, John Kelly, Seamus Farrell, Seamus O’Meara, Tony Hogan, Pat Rohan. Seamus served as secretary with the Borrisokane club 1979 – 1981 and 1983.

As a mark of respect, the Tricolour in MacDonagh Park flew at half mast, and club members joined with the Borrisokane club in forming a guard of honour at the funeral in Kilbarron. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
