Eddie Forde R.I.P.
We have just received the sad news of the death of Eddie Forde in Dublin and late of Ringaskiddy. Eddie was a former hurler and footballer with the Club. He was an outstanding under age player and played in the club’s first ever under 14 Hurling South East Final against St. Patrick’s Upton in 1960 when Ger. Coveney was in charge. He won a South East under 21 football medal with Shamrocks in 1967. He played Intermediate Hurling and Junior Football with the Club and played football with his Alma Mater Colaiste Criost Ri.
He was a member of an old Ringaskiddy Family who ran Forde’s Pub ( now The FBI). His brother Michael was a member of the Shamrock Junior Hurling side that won the S.E. title in 1959. He was predeceased by his other brother Denis.
Deepest sympathy is extended to his wife and family.
Breda Barry R.I.P. late of Shanbally;
Earlier this week the death of Breda Barry in Toronto, Canada was announced. Breda was married to Joe O’Sullivan of Castle Farm and after getting married in the mid 1950’s emigrated to Canada.
Joe died in 1981. Breda made many visits home over the years and perhaps part of her never left Ireland.
We send our profound sympathy to the Barry and O’Sullvan families.
At this most challenging time in all our lives, the GAA has announced a new initiative in partnering with Musgraves (SuperValu and Centra) to assist Ireland’s elderly and the most vulnerable in communites across the island.
The Club has decided to support our local communities by taking an active part in this initiative with Barry Collins SuperValu Supermarket in Carrigaline.
Working together, we will establish a volunteer support network to assist with the delivery of essentials (groceries, pharmacy prescriptions etc.) to elderly and isolated members of our communities.
Please contact the following numbers if you wish to avail of this service.
