Dalton, Betty

Predeceased by her husband Peter 13 years earlier, Betty was a great woman who reared 11 children, seven sons and four daughters. Most of her sons have played hurling with Castletown-Geoghegan and football with either Kilbeggan Shamrocks or St. Malachy's. Indeed, Emmett bravely lined out for Kilbeggan in their JFC semi-final defeat to Multyfarnham the day before Betty's passing.

Peter Jnr, meanwhile, has represented both Westmeath and New York in senior hurling.
