Our club un­veiled a plaque on the hurl­ing wall in our club grounds in hon­our of the late Peter Keogh on Sun­day morn­ing. The plaque was un­veiled by Club Chair­man Damien Byrne and Danny Byrne, Pres­i­dent of the club. Peter’s daugh­ters Josie and Breda, sis­ter Kath­leen and other mem­bers of the Keogh fam­ily at­tended.

County Chair­man Martin Cole­man and other mem­bers of the County Board at­tended along with a large gath­er­ing from the lo­cal com­mu­nity in­clud­ing the boys and girls from the four lo­cal na­tional schools; they played mini hurl­ing games in his hon­our. Peter had a great in­ter­est in this game with the lo­cal schools.

This hurl­ing wall on our club grounds was Peter’s idea back in 2006 as he trav­elled the coun­try with words say­ing, “Your not a hurl­ing club till you have a hurl­ing wall.” And the club granted his wish back then.

Josie Keogh, on be­half of the fam­ily, thanked the club for their kind ges­ture and for their help and sup­port over the past year. Rre­fresh­ments were served by the lo­cal ladies and the club wish to thank ev­ery­one for their help and sup­port on the day.

The first an­niver­sary mass for the late Peter Keogh takes place in Tal­bot­stown Church on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 25, at 6pm.
