The club was greatly saddened to hear that former player Alan Malone passed away recently. Alan played with us in the 1980s and played a starring role in the 1981 U21 final. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam. The club extends sympathy to the family and friends of Georgina McCormack (née Wright), Michael Fallon, and Sally Mimnagh who all passed away last week.
