Club Member: It was with great sadness we learned of the passing of Cathy Meehan. Cathy was a long standing member of the Club. She was the inaugural Lady President and held this position for four years. Cathy was a true lady and a great supporter of the Ladies Club. She will be greatly missed. We extend our deepest sympathy to Cathy’s family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.
