Tulsk GAA Club was deeply saddened this week by the passing of Monsignor Austin McKeon following a short illness. Monsignor McKeon was parish priest of Tulsk since 1990 and will be remembered for the trojan work he put into developing the schools and parish services in the area. Sincerest sympathy to Monsignor McKeon’s family and friends.
Sympathy is also extended to Kevin Kennedy, Carrowgarve on the loss of his brother Jack, in his 102nd year.
May they rest in peace.
