It has been a hard year for the heroes of 1963/1964 Junior and Intermediate Championship wins. Following the deaths of Kevin Darcy and Joe Joe Faherty earlier in the year comes the passing of Joe Richardson. Joe passed away unexpectedly on Sunday in his adopted home in Limerick. Originally from Tooreeny, Joe was a defensive stalwarth in the early to mid 60's. Supporters from that time have a particular memory of Joe in Athenry bursting out through a wall of attackers at the town end and striking off his favoured left hand side a magnificent point at the opposite end of the field.

Funeral on Thursday Oct 30th after 11.30am Mass in Christ the King Church, Caherdavin to Church of The Immaculate Conception Cemetery, Moycullen, Co. Galway, arriving at 2.30pm approx.

Family flowers only please. Donations, if desired, to The Diabetic Unit at University Hospital, Limerick.
