Tir na óg GAC
As a club we are lost for words…It is with a heavy heart that we announce the loss of our dear friend, committee member, former senior camogie, Gaelic for mother’s and others and u21 coach, former juvenile coordinator and current senior dual hurling and football coach, James. For the first time in our club history James helped to deliver a much sought after Intermediate Hurling Championship only months ago.We extend our sympathy to James’ family circle. We offer our condolences and will do all we can to support you in these challenging times.
Ar dheis lámh Dé go raibh a anam uasal Gaelach. Séamus Mac an Bheatha – fear uasal, Gael go smior, a thug a bheatha ar son a theaghlaigh, an chultúir Ghaelaigh agus ar son Thír na nÓg. Gabhaimd comhbhrón le Jim agus Louise agus lena theaghlach ar fad. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal Gaelach. Mairfidh tú linn go deo.(James McVeigh – a gentleman, an Irishman to the core who dedicated his life to his family, Irish culture and Tír na nÓg. We extend our sympathy to Jim and Louise and to all his family circle. May his noble Irish soul rest with God. We will never forget you.)
