Jim Sorohan RIP
The club was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of one of our great players from the 50s and 60s, Jim Sorohan (Drumhass), at the weekend. Jim starred on the 1953 and 1955 senior championship winning teams at midfield and full forward respectively. Everyone at Fr. Manning Gaels extends their deepest sympathy to Jim’s family and friends.
