Danny McGee RIP: A dark cloud has been hanging over our club and parish since word filtered through last Thursday that young Danny McGee had tragically passed away in New York. Danny was a terrific underage player for St. Vincent’s. He excelled in every age group and could play in any position where his pace, fielding, and an ability to kick accurately with both feet caused many headaches for the opposition. He was equally prominent for the Gaels U21 side and had played for the senior team shortly before emigrating to the United States. Poignantly, Danny was set to return home early next year and a bright future lay ahead of him in both his studies and the field at Monaduff. Above all else he was a young genetleman with a great sense of humour and he will be sorely missed by all. We extend our sincerest sympathy to Danny’s parents Don and Colleen, his brother Brian and sister Eva, extended family and wide circle of friends. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dhílis.
