Recent Bereavements
It is with deep sadness that our club has learned of the death of Rose Scanlon, the mother of Margaret Conroy and mother in law of Ger Conroy. Margaret’s father, John Scanlon is only recently deceased on the 25th December 2018.

We send Margaret, Ger and the extended Scanlon family our deepest sympathies at this very sad time.

All in Bray Emmet’s send our condolences to our former club chairman Michael O’ Byrne and his family, on the death of his brother Nicholas. Our sympathies are also sent to the extended O’Byrne family.
