PATRICK CORRIDON R.I.P
On behalf of Crotta O’Neills Hurling Club we wish to extend our sincere sympathy to the Corridon family, Ballyheigue on the sad passing of Patrick. Patrick was one of the nicest people you could meet, his love and dedication to Hurling in Kerry was inspirational and respected by all in particular all the kids who loved him. We had good chats during the Eddie Hayes Ground hurling tournament held in Crotta when he was involved and through his county co-ordinator role with U12 hurling competitions. He will be truly missed around the GAA fields of North Kerry. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a h’anam.
