Our Club was saddened to hear the news of the death of Fr. Paddy Kilcoyne RIP. 
Fr. Paddy was Parish Priest of Coolaney and former Chairperson of our Club during the 90s. He left an indelible legacy in the community and especially in our Club during that time and was an avid supporter ever since. A gentleman to the core, he was a tremendous coach to so many youngsters. We’ve lost a great Club servant who was revered and highly respected by all who knew him. We extend our sincerest sympathy to all of the Kilcoyne family, Tubbercurry and beyond. May Fr. Paddy rest in peace. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Our Club extends sympathy to all the family of the late Dr Seamus McGuiness (formerly Knockadoo, Coolaney). Seamus was a member of our Club’s 1958 Sligo senior championship winning team. We enjoyed a wonderful team reunion with Seamus and his family in 2008 leaving us all with many cherished memories. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
