Tragic Loss Of Our Friend & Teammate


It is with a heavy heart that we have to report the sad news of the passing of a member of the St. Colmcilles family, a player, our teammate, our friend, Joe Deacy.

At 21 years of age, Joe had a bright future ahead of him. He had an amazing energy and a real lust for life. He was a great friend and people were drawn to his character, his humour and outlook on life.

Joe loved playing Gaelic Football and being a part of the senior team here at St. Colmcilles. He had fantastic ability, great pace and was always a threat in front of goal. He has been a key member of the squad in recent years and has been very important to the success that the team has achieved recently.

It is difficult to say goodbye to anyone at any age but when it happens to someone so young it is especially difficult. He will be sorely missed by us all.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Joe’s family and friends at this time.

You will always be remembered by all of us here at the club, your friends and teammates.

Rest in peace Joe.

    Shocking. Thoughts and prayers to the family. This is where the club can, and will, come into its own in helping people through the dark times ahead
