Gerry Keane RIP
Kiltubrid GAA Club would like to extend its sympathy to the Keane Family Drumshanbo on the untimely death of Gerry Keane on Sunday last. To his wife Jessica, brother Joe, sisters Maureen & Margaret and all his relatives and friends. Unfortunately a day that started so brightly turned to tragedy as news filtered through of Gerrys sudden passing. Gerry was a well known face in the town of Drumshanbo along with his many years of involvement with Allen Gaels and he will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.
