On behalf of all in the club we send our deepest sympathies to the Houlihan family and all in Dungarvan GAA Club on the tragic death of David Houlihan last week. Whilst David was of course a proud member of Dungarvan GAA Club he had many friends in Abbeyside and the news of his untimely death shocked and saddened everyone when they heard it last Wednesday. David had an infectious personality which meant that he endeared himself to anyone who ever met him and had played against us only a few short weeks ago in Intermediate Football. The fantastic response to the fundraising activity to help with returning David home is testament if any were needed to the high regard David was held in by all who knew him. Indeed it is often said that only the good die young and this is certainly true of David. He will be deeply missed by all his good friends in Abbeyside / Ballinacourty GAA Club and we once again send our sympathies to all the Houlihan Family and the members of Dungarvan GAA Club.
