The Club extends its sympathies to the family of Sheila O Donoghue( née O Meara) who passed away during the week.
Sheila was a member of the O Meara family whose pub and grocery store in High Street ( located where Penneys is now) was an unofficial clubhouse for the Legion for many years. The family was very proud of its association with the Club. Sheila’s late brother Donal, served in various roles and officerships in the club while Padraig ,though domiciled in Sligo, never forgot his roots, arranging many outings to and from Sligo for his adopted Club. Sheila’s twin sister Eileen only died last Christmas and with Sheila’s passing a generation of O Mearas has now sadly departed. Of course Michael Bernard continues to carry the torch, involved with Senior and Junior teams recently, and his own son Jamie is relishing his visits to the Saturday MorningAcademy.
Sheila herself was a familiar face at Kerrys inter county matches and rarely missed an outing with her great friend Aine Ni Suilleabhain.
May Sheila and her departed brothers and sister all Rest in Peace.
