Ballybay Notes

February 20th, 2012

 

Kieran Finlay
Ballybay Pearse Bros are deeply saddened by the passing of our friend, club member and neighbour on the 14th February 2012.
Kieran was a brilliant footballer, family man and club man who was only too willing to help in any way he could to improve the club. The Pearse Brothers Centre and facilities are testimony to that fact. He was so proud of the club where he played his football.
He won many medals at various levels with Ballybay Pearse Bros, Monaghan and Ulster. His distinction was to win an Ulster medal in 1979 with Monaghan scoring 1 goal and 9 points against Donegal, a record he held for 20 years. He will be greatly missed for his expertise of Gaelic football. He was always keen to pass on his knowledge and love of the game by coaching through the years. As well as that many people locally and world wide were entertained by his excellent singing voice and he will always be known for the unofficial Ballybay anthem “Will the Circle be Unbroken.”
We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife Ann, his family Kevin, Paul, Ciara and Laura, also to his mother Carmel, brother Gerard and sisters, Patricia, Bernadette and Shauna.

Rest in Peace Kieran
