The late Patsy Connolly, Cornalough and Toome.


The death took place last week of Patsy Connolly, Cornalough, Castleblayney. Sympathy is extended to his wife Mary and his sons and daughters.

The late Patsy will be remembered fondly also by the Toome GAA club. When it was decided to purchase and develop a new playing pitch for the Toome club, Patsy was prepared to work with the development. He had already been involved with Toome underage teams, and for a time, acted as club official.

As treasurer of the then newly formed development committee, he was a major force in raising funds and ensuring that these funds were spent in a wise fashion. Patsy encouraged his family to join in the many fund raising events organised by the committee.

The club will be forever grateful for his efforts as treasurer of the development committee, which was chaired by the late Tommy McMahon. Since Patsy’s death, many stories were told about the efforts to gather what was a large sum of money at the time, to complete the development. During those many meetings which were held, Patsy was always pleasant and sincere when dealing with people.

As the Toome community mourns the passing of Patsy, they give thanks for having such an honest hardworking gentleman as part of the community.

May he rest in peace.
