This morning after the buzz of Mini All Ireland week, our thoughts turn sombre as we remember our friend and fellow Mini All Ireland volunteer Sharon O'Brien.

Sharon was a familiar face during past Mini All Irelands. She was the comforting, supportive face of the First Aid tent and things always ran smoothly when she was on the job.

It was a tremendous shock to get the news of her death on the morning of Finals Day.

She was remembered ahead of both the Senior Finals with a minute's silence and round of applause held in her memory.

Her son Mikey carries on her giving tradition completing his Bronze Gaisce Award through his volunteer coaching at our Academy. Although only in TY, he worked so well with the children and also with the adult coaches who were always delighted to have him in their groups.

We were honoured to be asked to line the road as Sharon makes her way to the church.

We're holding her husband John and her children Lucy, Mikey and Sean very much in our thoughts - today and in the times ahead.

Ní bheidh a leithead ann arís.
