Jim Casey RIP

It was with deep regret we learned this morning that our former President (1971-72) Trustee and Honorary Life Member, Jim Casey had past away.

Jim was a true clubman, still attending senior fixtures up to recently, he had his corner upstairs to watch the games, he will be missed by us all.

Three months ago there was a gathering of all former Presidents, it was great that Jim was able to attend, as he was the longest out of office. nearly 50 years, pictured above in the middle of the front row.

We extend the sympathies of all in the Club to Joan, their children, Jack, Gina, Peter, David and Darragh and the extended family.

 Lying in repose at the Temple Hill, Funeral Home, Boreemanna Road of Jerh. O’ Connor Ltd., on Saturday from 3.30pm until 5pm. Reception prayers at 11.00am on Monday followed by Requiem Mass at 11.30am in St. Columba's Church, Douglas. Funeral afterwards to St. John’s Cemetery, Ballinrea. House Private.

U 18's win Development Plate

Congratulations to the U 18's on their 5 point victory over Fermoy at Musgrave Park. It was a great finish to the season, a season where they struggled at the start with numbers but great work by all those involved with the team they build up a strong panel. It's looking good for next season as most of the players will be U18.5 again next season.

The U14's were beaten 27- 24 in the Development Cup final by Sundays Well, unfortunately their 2nd final defeat in a week. All credit to them, they started slowly and scored 19 unanswed points to lead 24-22 just to be overtaken with a try on the last play.
