Drumcliffe Rossa club notes

January 18, 2021

We were saddened to hear of the death of our former Club Chairman and friend, Kieran McDermott. Our deepest sympathies to his wife Nuala and the McDermott family.  Kieran had a long and distinguished association with our club and with Sligo GAA. He was Club Chairman from 1991 to 1994. He was also Patron of Sligo GAA, a former Chair of the county board (1991-1993) and Central Council delegate (1996-2009). He was deeply involved in the re-development of Markievicz Park during the 1990s.  It was his original motion proposed at the club’s AGM in 2004, later at County Convention – and then to Annual Congress in 2005, which saw the Association remove Rule 42, which opened Croke Park to other sports. In his youth, Kieran was also a noted athlete – setting a Connacht Colleges record for the 440 yards dash in 1958 – a record which stood for many years afterwards. Due to Covid restrictions, the funeral mass this Tuesday (Jan 19th) at 12 noon is private to family – but it can be viewed online on drumcliffemaugherow.ie. 

Condolences also the Kerrigan family following the recent bereavement of Sean Kerrigan. Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.
