Tim Liffey R.I.P: Our club sends its condolences to the family of Club President Tim Liffey who died last week.  Tim played hurling and football for Moneygall for many years and was right half back on the team that won the north and county Intermediate hurling titles in 1949.  He played on the football team that won three north junior titles from 1949 to 1951, and also had a successful cross-country career with Moneygall.
After spending many years working in London he returned to Moneygall in the early 1970s, and remained a loyal supporter of the club ever since.  Tim was elected Club President in 2007, and his contribution to the club throughout his lifetime was remembered on Sunday afternoon, when a guard of honour escorted the hearse on its journey from his home to St. Joseph’s Church for requiem mass.

The club also extends condolences to the family of Maura Murphy, Ballingarry.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a n-anamacha.
