We extend our sympathies to the family and friends of the late Cissie Russell, Carrick-on-Suir. Mrs. Russell’s daughter, Catherine McTiernan, is well known to everyone in our club for her tireless work as club secretary while her sons Seán and Dermot, and daughter Tara all play for our club while Catherine’s husband Pauric is a great supporter of our club.
