The sudden and untimely passing of Terry McCormack at the weekend has brought great sadness to the community of Killoe and we extend our sympathy to his wife Josephine, their children Sean, Sineád and Padraig, his extended family and wide circle of friends.
Terry has left a significant imprint on the parish, particularly through his achievements and involvement in football and the GAA. Apart from his many honours as a player and his involvement in management for Killoe Young Emmets, he had an important role in the formation of Ladies Football in the parish and was part of the management team of the first senior team that won the inaugural county league title in 1980. He was also the first chairman of the Ladies County Board. While we can sometimes take for granted the strong position of our club within the GAA family in Killoe today, it all began as a result of the enthusiasm and support of people like Terry in those formative years. He and his family have played a significant part in GAA success and development within Killoe over the past few decades and it is hard to imagine parish life without him.
