Ryan, Diarmuid

Garrycastle club members were shocked and saddened to learn of the death of former player Diarmuid Ryan at the age of just 41 last November.

A grandson of former GAA president Seamus O Riain, Diarmuid's family has been synonymous with the Athlone-based club since its formation over 30 years ago. Diarmuid's father Dermot has been involved in the club in a variety of capacities, while his brothers Ciaran and Donal have won Westmeath SFC medals and also played for the Lake County.

The Feis Cup final between Garrycastle and St. Loman's was postponed as a mark of respect to Diarmuid and the Ryan family.

Dermot worked with our company Lynn Group back in the 1990s and all here were shcoked to learn of his death.
