The death occurred on Wednesday the 18th of March of Tommy Hayes Ballygriffin, after a long illness bravely borne. The committee and membership of Knockavilla / Donaskeigh Kickham GAA Club extends its deepest sympathies to his beloved wife Alice and devoted daughter Margaret, who is our Senior Club Secretary, on their sad loss. Tommy was a life President of our club and was so proud when Margaret was elected Hon. Secretary at the Club AGM in 2013. In his youth Tommy wore the Black and Amber with pride. He played at a time when the Kickham club was a powerful force in Senior hurling in the West Tipperary division, and would have hurled with some of the club greats. He won a minor west medal in 1951 and a junior in 1952. Kickham’s won 12 west senior hurling titles from 1946 to 1960 and Tommy was part of two of those great teams, winning medals in 1954 and 1956. He, along with other players from that golden era of Kickham hurling was honoured at a Club presentation night in 2000 when the club history was also launched. 

Tommy was a tireless and hardworking member of the club. He was involved in the drainage of the original and new fields, club development,

fundraising, management committee, and stewarding at matches up until illness struck in September 2002.However, he still attended matches when

possible as he had a willing driver and able scorekeeper in Margaret. His last Kickham match was the 2014 Junior West hurling final. Tommy didn’t

confine his involvement to men’s GAA only.Margaret was Secretary and a player in the newly formed Camogie club in 1985 and it was inevitable that

Tommy would also be involved. He served as a selector from 1985 to 1992 winning three U/16, one U/18 and two junior County Championship’s as well

as one County junior league. Tommy was a lifelong Kickham and Tipperary Supporter as well as a great community man, husband and father. As a mark of respect to Tommy and the Hayes family, the Kickham GAA and Camogie clubs along with Knockavilla Community Council and lifelong friends provided a guard of honour on the evening of removal of his remains to Knockavilla Church. We also offer our condolences to his extended family, relatives, neighbours and friends at this sad time. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.
