The Corkman - - COMMUNITY NEWS -


It was with great sad­ness that we learned of the death of Ed­die Pow­ell Bal­li­na­mona. Ed­die was syn­ony­mous with the com­mu­nity cen­tre. He was ef­fec­tively the care­taker for the cen­tre when it opened in 1979 all the way up to when he re­tired in 2002. He did all this in his own time and he de­serves mas­sive thanks for all the work he put In.

Ed­die was also a mem­ber of the 1955 Clyda Rovers Hurling team the first to win a cham­pi­onship of any kind for the club. He spent hours and hours coach­ing our ju­ve­niles in the 1970’s. He was chair­man of the se­nior club be­tween 1981 and 1984. He presided over the cen­te­nary cel­e­bra­tions on a his­toric night for the com­mu­nity.

We pass on our deep­est sym­pa­thies to the Pow­ell fam­ily ar dheis de go raibh anam.
