All in the club were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Eddie who succumbed to illness last week. Eddie, also known as Womble, was a great follower of sports but we were lucky to have him involved with us in many different roles, he was a proud father as he watched Bobby and Alan turn in big performances for the club in both hurling and football. In later years Eddie helped out coaching the children on the Green and was a great influence on them. He never courted the limelight but went about his work in a nice quiet way, a friendly dignified man who was very much well respected by all who had the honour of knowing him. Eddie will be greatly missed by his wife Betsy, daughter Vanessa and sons Robert and Alan, brothers, sisters, daughter-in-law Sarah, grandchildren, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
The club are also deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Tommy Waters of St John’s Terrace. Tommy won two senior championships as a very skilful mid-fielder with the Swan in 1958 and 1959 along with his late brothers Willis and John. They were later joined by younger brother Mattie to make it four on the team for the losing senior finals of 1960 and 1962. Tommy was a humble man who never boasted about his achievements in the game and was always a very nice man to have a chat with whenever you’d meet him. We extend our sympathy to Tommy’s wife May, his sons Bernard, John, Kevin, William and Brian, daughter Ann Marie, brother Mattie, sister-in-law Josie and to all of the extended family and friends.
The Swan club would like to offer our condolences to the Faulkner family of Carrick and New York on their recent bereavement.
