Vice Chairman of Garryowen F.C Eoghan Prendergast passed on his condolences to Seamus' family on behalf of the club.

"Last year we had a reunion and it was so great to see him again, even though he wasn't in the greatest of health. Every club needs a person like Seamus, he had such a pleasant personality and great ambassador for the club as well."

"He was one of our own and we are really sad to hear of his passing today. A lovely person and our sympathies to his family."
