He was a very quiet, unassuming man who worked all his life until a serious injury at work a number of years ago caused him to retire early. His two sons, Philip and Paudie, both returned home from Australia for the funeral and his daughter ,Annette eulogised him in the most glowing of terms in the church after Requiem Mass. He is survived by his wife, Patsy, Daughter, Annette, sons, Philip and Paudie his sisters, Sr. Mary, Mairead and Kathleen, brother, Michael ,his good neighbours and friends. He was predeceased by his daughter, Veronica and sister, Bernie O Dwyer. Following Requiem Mass in St Michael’s Church, Cappamore the burial took place in Doon cemetery.

Sliabh Feilim Golf : The year started off in March with an outing to Ballykisteen. There were over 30 golfers present on the day with 6 Junior members and some new adult members. There are now 3 lady members in the society and more are welcome. We had a team event and the scoring was very keen, the weather was great and notable on the day was that two of our new members, local Vet ,Brian Ryan and Mary Bourke picked up prizes. Well done to both. The next two outings were the society’s trip away in April. We played Galway Bay on Saturday. Twenty golfers teed off on the day and we had another beautiful day. The course was in great order and the scoring was very good. We had a Singles competition where Dan McKenna was first, Ger Ryan ,second and David Ryan was third. Seamus Ryan and Seamus Keating picked up nearest the pin prizes. We played Gort on the way home on Sunday. This was a team event with 24 golfers present , but we were very unlucky with the weather. So, it was a bit of a struggle but we enjoyed it and all golfers got home safely. The next day out was in Dundrum in May. The fine day brought out a big gang of golfers- 43 in total. Some job picking the teams! Once again we were lucky with the weather and the course was in perfect order. A team was held with the winning team of Ger Ryan, John O Dea, Ann Creamer and Lee Ryan bringing a great score of 110 points. Well done to Ann who narrowly missed out at this venue last year. James O Dea and guest Niall Sheehan getting nearest the pin prizes. Our next day out is on 23 June in Clonmel, a course we have not played before. So, I hope we will have a good day out. I’d like to thank Pa Creamer for all his help with organising the outings and Dan McKenna for looking after the prizes. Also, Davy Charles for marking the cards after each event. So ‘til the next outing ,happy golfing.
