The club are saddened to record the passing of Jimmy Madden at a relatively young age after a long illness, Jimmy will be remembered to those of us who saw him play as a very tough uncompromising corner back who along with his great friend the late Pat O’Shea kept the best of corner forwards very quiet in the 60s and early 70s. Though medals were scarce on Jimmy’s cv due to hurling at a time when we were not strong and his subsequent emigration his affection for the Swan never waned and he was always delighted to see any cups we won being brought out to the ‘little village’ of Faugheen where upon with a little persuasion he would sing a few songs and join in the celebrations. To Jimmy’s heartbroken family we offer our sincere sympathy. Jimmy is being waked in Walsh’s Funeral Home on Thursday evening from 5pm-7pm, on Friday morning at 10.15am he will be brought to Windgap church for funeral mass at 11am following which he will be laid to rest in Faugheen cemetery, the club’s flag flies at half mast in honour of one of our own. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilis.
