Brian Crummy RIP

We are all very saddened to learn of the passing of one of our long standing members – Brian Crummy.  We remember with fondness Brian’s wit, sense of humour and charm and his masterful command of the spoken word.  Back in the day when a Bridge party really was a Bridge party, no evening was complete without Brian’s extra special talent – his magical singing voice – and his rendition of the ‘Woods of Gortnamona’ still warms our hearts.  May he Rest in Peace.  We extend our deepest sympathies to Dolores and Rena.

Eilísh Keaveney RIP

Eilish Keaveney RIP

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Eilísh Keaveney (wife of Gay Keaveney).  Those of us who had the pleasure of meeting her were always touched by her kindness, her sense of fairness and her abundance of that rare quality – common sense.  The old saying that behind every great man is an even greater woman is particularly appropriate in Eilísh’s case – you don’t get to be the number one player in Ireland without the support of a great and loving wife.  We extend our heartfelt sympathies to Gay, Neasa, Doireann, Fergal, extended family and friends.  May she Rest in Peace.

(Retired Principal of the Dominican College, Taylor’s Hill, Galway) Dearly beloved wife of Gay and much loved mother of Neasa, Doireann and Fergal. Deeply mourned and sadly missed by her husband, daughters and son, sisters Sheila, Moya, Fiona, Mairéad and their families, the extended Keaveney and Coffey families and friends.
