Death of former Clonmore player, Nicksey Byrne.

November 8, 2018

Clonmore GFC would like to send sincere sympathies to the family and friends of the late Nicksey Byrne who passed away last week. A very popular character around Hacketstown, Nicksey played football for Clonmore in the 1960s and ’70s and was also a talented handballer, winning a County Championship with the Hacketstown Team of Six in 1980.

Nicksey died peacefully on Wednesday, 30 January, after a long illness, aged 61.
