Paul Higgins RIP
Western Gaels GAA Club would like to extend our sincere sympathies and condolences to the family on the untimely passing of Paul Higgins. Paul was a past player and great supporter of our club down through the years. He put up a brave and dignified fight over the long course of his illness over many years and will be sadly missed by his family and his large group of neighbours and friends. The large numbers that attended the funeral on both days was testament to the stature that Paul was held in by all that knew him.
As a mark of respect the player awards night due to be held on Friday night last was cancelled until further notice.
‘Ar dheis Dè go raibh a anam’. May he rest in peace.
