RIP Eoin Farrell & James Miskelly
It was with deep regret that St Bronagh’s GAC learned of the deaths of Eoin Farrell and James Miskelly in a road traffic accident last week. An accident which has left another friend, Che Kane, recovering well in hospital. Eoin was a nephew of Lorna McCourt (wife of Chairman Malachy) and a former club player, with numerous other family connections in the village – while James was from neighbouring Mayobridge. Our heartfelt sympathy goes out to both the Farrell and Miskelly family circles, and their friends in this most devastating of circumstances. While we also extend our best wishes and a speedy recovery to Che.
May their departed souls Rest In Peace.
Eoin’s Scania Jacket
Could everyone please share this for us! Eoins Scania jacket with his name on it has been misplaced and we have heard he had given it to someone. (A girl on a night out) If anybody knows who has the jacket could they please return it to us! Mummy and daddy would really appreciate it.
Thanks Sarah Louise.
The P5 team got to the semi-final of the Cup competition on Saturday morning in their last tournament of the year. After a slow start against a very strong Bosco team in the group stages, the young Reds followed up with good victories against Burren and Ballyholland to finish second in their group. However,the hosts were to prove too strong in the semi-final. Thanks to all children who attended and gave their best against strong opposition. Finally thanks to all parents for their continued support.
