Mary Cleary RIP

Mary Cleary RIP

We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of one of our nicest and greatest Sligo Players – Mary Cleary.  Mary was always a pleasure to meet at the Bridge table either as a partner or as an opponent and in her heyday Mary was unbeatable no matter who she played with.  Thankfully she handed the baton on by training her sister Eileen Keaney and her niece Anne-Marie Keaney.

We extend our deepest sympathies to her husband P.J. and her children Siobhán, Senan, Eimear and Fionnuala and her sister Eileen Keaney and her niece Anne-Marie Keaney and her brother Tom Gilligan, her daughter-in-law Rose, sons-in-law Maurice, Sean and David, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, grandchildren Muiris, Oisin, Ferdia, Naoise, Tadhg, Liam, Aoibh, Aifric, Caoimhe and Cillian, nieces, nephews, relatives, neighbours and friends.
