Martina Power tribute
An Brú AC lost a good friend and club member Martina Power, Martina was an intergal part of club for eight years.
Not only was she a member but was also a very active in the committee and gave up a lot of her time to help out at any events that were organised by the club.
Her husband Graham and her two sons Aiden and David are also part of An Brú AC.
She is a big lost to us all in the club not only as a club member but as a very good friend.
We would like to thank all who turned up for the guard of honour and to extend our sympathies to her husband Graham, her sons Aiden and David and to her parents, brothers, sister and all her family and friends.

May she rest in Peace
