Knockavilla Donaskeigh Kickham GAA club extends its deepest sympathy to Catherine Sheridan and her son Thomas of Limerick Junction on the death of her beloved husband and devoted father Tommy late of Knockavilla after a long illness borne with dignity and courage. We also extend our condelences to his brother Mickie (Knockavilla), his sisters Jean Ryan (Knockavilla), Eileen Carew (Tipperary), Mai Campion (Clonoulty) and their familes on their sad loss. In his youth Tommy had worn the black and amber of his beloved Kickhams with pride and had over the years been a great supporter of the club and had attended matches with Catherine up until recently. As a mark of respect to Tommy and the extended Sheridan family the Club provided a guard of honour on his journey to his final resting place in Knockavilla cemetery.
