The Late Jim Brennan RIP 

The club was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of club great Jim Brennan (Lettergeeragh) in Balbriggan last week. Jim was a very elegant, skilful and athletic player for us in the late 50s and 60s and was part of the Feis Cup winning squad of 1960. Even after moving away having become a Garda, the club and parish always remained close to Jim’s heart and he regularly travelled home to watch the Gaels play. To his wife Nora, children Karen, Paul, James and John, brothers and sisters, grandchildren and great grandchildren, extended family and many friends we extend our deepest sympathy.
