Paddy Tighe RIP

All at Bunbrosna GAA were deeply saddened to learn of the sad passing of Paddy Tighe, Rathowen, on Tuesday evening last.

Paddy was a club stalwart and will be greatly missed by all who knew him. He was a vital part of our Championship winning teams in 1969 and 1971. He was a teak-tough defender who never gave an inch to any forward.  He was a strong supporter of the club when he retired from football and this continued right up until his passing.

He took tremendous pride in watching his son, Pádraig, emulate his success with Bun when winning an Intermediate Championship in 2006 and this pride was again in evidence at seeing his grandson, Cian, make his transfer to Bun last year and then make his Championship debut later in the year.

Paddy was a gentle soul and had a smile for everyone. He had a great rapport with people of all ages and always had a kind or positive word for all those he met.

To his children, Suzanne, Paul, Catherine, Damien, Eileen and Padraig, his adored grandchildren, great-grandchildren, extended family, neighbours and wide circle of friends, we offer our deepest sympathies to you all at this sad time.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.

Westmeath Senior Hurlers

Well done to Shane McGovern who lined out at midfield for the Westmeath Senior Hurlers against Antrim in the 2nd Round of the Walsh Cup on Sunday. In what was a very good display, Westmeath came away with a two point win in Abbotstown. Well done to all.


Congratulations from all at the Club to Aidan and Laura Finnan on the birth of their son, Jack, earlier in the week. We are sure his big sister, Kate, will take great care of him. We wish you four, all the best for the future.


All at Bunbrosna GAA wish to offer our sincere condolences to the Kenny family, Ferbane, on the sad passing of Marie last week.

To her children Helen, Marian, Thomas, P.J. and Tony, grandchildren, Paula, Brian, Neil, Alan, Kerry, Roisín, Aisling and Tom, great-grandchildren, sisters Doris, Martha, Nancy and Emily, extended family, neighbours and friends, we offer our deepest sympathies to you all at this sad time.

We also wish to offer our sincere condolences to the Fulham family, Rathowen, on the sad passing of Teresa (Tess) Fulham who died in England earlier during the last week.

We extend our deepest sympathies to her family, relatives and friends at this sad time.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh síad.
