2017 Club Notes

CLUB NOTES TO APPEAR IN THE HERALD & FINGAL INDEPENDENT ON TUESDAY 19 SEPTEMBER 2017

Here in St Pats, any happenings in GAA & LGFA during the week were overshadowed by the heart-breaking loss of our friend & colleague Trent Latham on Wednesday 13 September.
Although Trent was primarily Mentor with our U10 Boys, he was also involved with girls squads, Mini All Ireland, Juvenile Camps & The Development Committee. He was a club man through and through; his loss is overwhelming.
We offer our sincere and heartfelt sympathies to his wife Hazel and to his adored children Sophia & Cian, to his mother Eileen and his sisters Cheryl & Sonia.
We hope that the huge sea of Green & Black at Saturday’s funeral was seen as a demonstration of the love & esteem we hold Trent in.
To watch the All Ireland Final and hear The Hill explode in applause at the 44th minute made us all so proud & honoured to have known him. #44Trent
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilís; ní bheidh a leithead ann arís.
