It was with great shock and sadness that we learned of the sudden death of Dominic (Dom) Browne of Kilmore and formerly Knockavilla on Saturday

night the 2nd of May .He was attending the under 21 All Ireland football final between his beloved Tipperary and Tyrone in Parnell Park Dublin

when he took ill, and despite the best possible medical assistance, sadly passed away. Dom who was a life President of the Kickham club, died

watching the game and county he loved. Football and Tipperary GAA were some of his favourite passions in life. He had been attending Football

All Ireland finals since 1948 and had earlier this year travelled to Armagh and Drogheda to support the County during their National football

league campaign. In his youth Dom played hurling for his beloved Knockavilla Donaskeigh kickhams. He won a minor west medal in 1951 and a junior

in 1952.  He along with club mate Billy Hayes of Donaskeigh also won an all-Ireland minor hurling medal with Tipperary in 1952. Playing at full

forward against Dublin Dom scored a goal in the match. Dom played his hurling at a time when the Kickham club was a powerful force in Senior

hurling in the West Tipperary division. Kickham’s won 12 west senior hurling titles from 1946 to 1960 and Dom was an integral part of those great

teams, winning divisional medals in  1954,1955,1956,1958 and 1959 as well as a Crosco Cup in 1957. Dom, along with fellow players from that golden

era of Kickham hurling was honoured at a Club presentation night in 2003 when the club history was also launched. The Browne family have a long

involvement with the Kickham’s and continue to be involved in the club to the present day, with his son Michael the present Juvenile Club PRO

and his grandchildren featuring on many of the clubs teams.  The esteem and respect that Dom and the Browne family are held in was evidenced

by the large attendance of mourners for his funeral at his home in Kilmore on Wednesday night last and again on Thursday morning when the members

of the Kickham club, along with representatives of Tipperary Co. Football Board and his many GAA friends from near and far formed a guard of honour

as his remains arrived at Knockavilla Church. Following requiem mass, Dom was laid to rest in the nearby St Senans Cemetery. The Committee and

membership of Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickham’s GAA Club offer our deepest sympathies to Dom’s devoted wife Eileen, his sons John and Michael,

daughters Miriam and Margaret, Sisters Peggy Ryan and Mai Doherty, his 9 adoring grandchildren, Sons in law John and David, Daughters in law

Margaret and Mary, brothers in law, sisters in law, nephews, the extended Browne family, relatives, neighbours and friends. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh

a anam.

 We also offer our sympathies to those from the club who have been bereaved in recent times, including Gerry and Mary Ryan and Family, Deerpark on

the tragic death in Glasgow of Gerry’s niece Karen Buckley of Mourneabbey, Mallow, Co. Cork. We also offer our condolences to Davy and Lorraine

Heelan and family, station road Dundrum on the death of Davy’s Sister Denise chapman nee (Heelan) who died in England. May they all rest in peace.
