Louth GAA mourning passing of Brendan Carthy
Louth GAA is mourning this morning following the passing of Minor Board chairman Brendan Carthy.
The Roche Emmets clubman has been pivotal in reviving the underage game in the county in recent years and was hugely influential in implementing the OgSport Lú and Go Games programmes.
Brendan, who worked in Dundalk IT, also had a major role to play in the development of the Darver development, where was project manager in the early years.
Despite battling illness in recent years, Brendan remained committed to Louth GAA and many will mourn his passing.
Brendan was beloved husband of Mary (née Lennon), devoted father of Liam, Dermot, Conor and the late Padraig (who died in infancy), dear son of Margot and the late Hugh (Ard Easmuinn, Dundalk) and brother of Seamus, Sean, Una and the late Ciaran. He will also be sadly missed by his mother-in-law Eileen, aunt, uncles, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law and a large circle of relatives and friends.
Brendan is reposing at his home in Killin, Brid-A-Crin from 6pm to 10pm on Mondya and 4pm to 8pm on Tuesday. Removal on Wednesday at 10.45am to St Joseph’s Church, Castletown, arriving for Mass at 11.30am. Funeral afterwards to Kilcurry Cemetery.
