John Smith, R.I.P.
Last Sunday we laid to rest a great clubman and lifetime servant of Cumainn Churraichin Mhic Naoimh Ui Phadraigh, Currin Sons of Saint Patrick.
To his children, Sinead, Siobhan, Aileen, Brian and Diarmuid, we in Currin GFC, extend our sincere condolences. To his sisters Mary, Margaret, Anne and Sabina and his extended family and his many friends we also offer our sympathies.
John Smith, son of Henry and Maggie Kate Smith grew up in Corrineary, Scotshouse. He left Scotshouse at the age of 17 to work in Dublin but always found a way to get back and line out for the Sons of St Patrick until he permanently returned home in 1979 after 22 years. To put everything in a nutshell John played, mentored and administrated for Currin GFC all his life.
John ended his playing career with a J F C medal in 1968 and then began a period of almost 50 years of unbroken and continuous voluntary commitment to the Currin club off the field of play. Along with mentoring and managing many teams, John has served the club in all areas of administration, most notably as Secretary and county board representative, being awarded Club Official of the year and Volunteer of the year for his efforts.
John and his beloved wife Margaret, ‘looked after the jerseys’ for ALL our teams, juvenile and senior for all these years and he also ‘took care of the field and the club rooms’ during this time, both vital and time-consuming tasks. He never missed a game, juvenile or senior, home or away. He was always there, first man in the gate, jerseys and footballs in hand, and of course his famous notebook, the copybook in which he meticulously recorded the team sheets and match details. Currin Sons of St Patrick has had many fine sons in our 137 years, but few could rival the contribution of John Smith.
His love of Monaghan and his joy at our recent successes brought great satisfaction to John. He took great delight at being able to travel down south and talk football on equal terms with the aristocrats of the game in Munster, proudly wearing his Monaghan colours. The GAA is built on a foundation of people like John Smith, selfless, unassuming, positive and genuine. We here in this small rural community of north Monaghan can say with pride that we have known one of the best who epitomised all that is good about the GAA.
The Currin community, young and old turned out in great numbers to proudly carry John to his final place of rest. May the Currin and Scotshouse sod lay softly on his head and may the angels bear him gently to God’s happy playing fields.
