Austin Deasy R.I.P.



Austin Deasy R.I.P.
On behalf of all in our club we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of the late Austin Deasy, who passed away yesterday. Prior to his election as a TD, where he served Waterford for twenty five years in the Dáil, including five as Minister for Agriculture, Austin had been deeply involved in our club for many years.
After hanging up his playing boots Austin served as a club committee member, going on to become club Treasurer in the 1960's and he was centrally involved in the successful amalgamation of our club in 1967. Austin was also a selector on numerous club teams including the Senior Hurling team who contested the 1969 County Final.
A lover of all sports, but especially GAA and horse racing, Austin remained a lifelong supporter of our club and indeed he had an encyclopedic memory of matches going back to the 1950's. He greatly enjoyed recalling these memories or discussing the issues of the day in the company of others over a drink or two and he remained a very popular figure around the Village up to his recent illness. 
Once again we send our sympathies to Austin's family especially his wife Kathleen and children John, Sally, Jane and Jamie.

Sympathy
On behalf of all in the club we would like to send our sympathies to the family and friends of the late Margaret (Peggy) Burns, Tramore who passed away recently. Peggy’s son Johnny was a key member of our successful Senior Football teams in the 1970’s and 80’s, after which he gave many years coaching numerous underage teams to County Titles. Peggy’s grandsons featured on some of those teams and her great grandchildren continue to wear the club jersey today. Once again we send our sympathy to Johnny and all the Burns family on the death of Peggy.
