Pat McAuliffe R.I.P.

 

The sad news of Pat McAuliffe’s untimely passing has us all in a state of shock and disbelief. The Multi Sports charismatic Reporter endeared himself to every one he met and engaged with. Pat was a players and a people’s man. Whether in the white heat of a Munster Championship or on a grassy field at a ‘B’ Junior game he was so passionate about the task on hand. Pat loved sport and of course was so willing to put so much in himself.
With Pat around, a team would never be short. Pat wore the Shamrock jersey with dignity and pride and on many occasions he led his younger colleagues to enjoyable encounters and victories. We were all very fond of this genial and courteous gentleman.

He was the ultimate professional when he held the microphone and his voice came over the wavelengths from venues all over Ireland and all over County Cork.
He often related to one of the most fascinating interviews he ever did. Pat attended the 100 Birthday party of The then Shamrock Club President. Jim Russell, at Acton’s Hotel in Kinsale. Pat was with RTE Cork Local Radio then and later he interviewed  Jim and posted the recording for the sports report that evening.
We have lost a friend and a true sportsman.
