CONDOLENCES: It is with great sadness we heard the news of the passing of Dr Mick Lucey. Dr. Mick and his family moved to Croom in the early 80’s, although he was a Ballingarry man he made his mark on the community of Croom. He was involved in many projects in Croom over the years. Sport was one of Dr. Mick’s passions, especially Gaa, rugby, and golf. Mick was elected President of Croom Gaa Juvenile club in 1984 when it was started and holds that Honorary title to this day. He had a great interest in the welfare of the children and supported them at every game. Mick was our club doctor and gave so freely of his time and care, and looked for nothing in return. Dr Mick celebrated his 80th birthday in 2018 and the senior players made a presentation of a club jacket to him, which he wore with pride. Some would say “it took us long enough”. Mick you were a gentleman on and off the pitch, witty and always with a smile. Croom Gaa would like to offer our sincere condolences to his sons Stephen, Mark and David and to his daughters Caroline and Michelle. Mick will be sadly missed by his children, grandchildren, extended family and friends and by all in Croom Gaa. May Mick's gentle soul Rest in Peace. Ar Dheis Dé go Raibh a ainm.

There are too few of us trying to deliver a first class club, and we are now appealing to each and every member of the club, and also to the parents and families of our members to come on board.
