A meeting will take place in Knockcroghery tomorrow night to discuss plans to erect a statue honouring local hero Jimmy Murray.
Murray, who passed away in 2007 at the age of 90, played at centre half forward on the Roscommon team that won back-to-back All-Ireland SFC titles in 1943 and 1944, and was one of only seven men in the history of the GAA to lift the Sam Maguire Cup on two occasions.
Jimmy ran a pub in his beloved Knockcroghery for many years and embodied all that was good about Roscommon football and the GAA in general.
Discussions are to get underway on a proposal to install a monument in Knockcroghery village honouring 1943/44 All-Ireland winning captain, the late, great Jamesie Murray. A meeting to discuss the idea takes place this Thurs. night in the village. A wonderful idea for a legend. pic.twitter.com/scwbR0am7r— RoscommonGAALegends (@RosLegends) April 26, 2022
