Elaine Tate –R.I.P.
All of life in the Rockcorry GAA club and surrounding community came to a standstill on Saturday afternoon when news reached us that our friend and supporter Elaine Tate (nee O’Hart) had passed away. Elaine wife to our senior player Anthony and mother to underage players Fionn, Patrick and Ava was a regular attendee at club functions including football matches and the Drive in Bingo and never allowed having to deal with serious illness deter her from supporting the club and her family. The high esteem with which Elaine was held by all in the community was evident with the numbers who turned out to show their respects in beautiful summer sunshine on Monday morning with guards of honour been provided by all the club underage teams, as well as the senior panel/management, and club committee and members. To Anthony, Ava, Patrick and Fionn as well as Elaines parents Caith and Kieran, brother Ciaran, sisters Edwina, Emma and Ellise, extended family and large circle of friends the club extends their sympathies. Elaine we thank you for your presence, smiles, guidance, support and loyalty. May you rest in peace.
