St. Mary’s Ahoghill and the wider GAA community in Antrim are saddened to learn of the death of one of their former players, Mary Martin (nee Keenan) who died on Saturday. Mary captained the Ahoghill club to win a County Senior Championship in 1948, and also captained Antrim to All Ireland success in 1947.
Mary’s remains were removed from St. Mary’s Parish Church, Ahoghill following Requiem Mass for Internment in St. MacNissis Cemetry, Randalstown today (Wednesday).
Mary was one five Ahoghill players who won All Ireland medals during strong spells in Antrim Camogie in the 1940s, late 60s and 1979. This is a photo of the five who were honoured five years ago by the club on the 75th anniversary of their formation
The staff at the Saffron Gael offer their sincere sympathy to her wide family circle and to her friends at St. Mary’s Ahoghill where she was held in such high esteem.
