Condolences: We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Maggie Hughes and the Hughes and Traynor families on the recent death of little Ruby Traynor. We also sympathise with the Coyle and Finnegan families on the death of Julia Finnegan, Birmingham. We were also saddened to loose club stalwart Frank Lennon last weekend. Frank was an integral part of our club since even before its inception. He was a Tyholland man through and through and will be sadly missed from the sidelines at games and training sessions. Our deepest sympathies to the Lennon family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a nanamacha.
