Leitrim GAA wishes to record its sincere sympathy with the family of the late Fergus O Rourke, Dunshaughlin, Co Meath, and formerly of Aughavas, Co Leitrim on his sad passing yesterday.
Fergus was a former Leitrim County Player of the 1960s and also played Senior Club Football with his native Aughavas in that decade, a decade during which Aughavas won two Leitrim SFC titles in 1963 and 1966 and in each of which Fergus played a pivotal role.
The O Rourke Family relocated to Skryne, Co Meath during the early 1960s and have gone on to enjoy many successes both on and off the field of play in the intervening decades. We tender our sincerest condolences to all family members on this sad occasion.
Fergus, who died peacefully at Connolly Hospital, Blanchardstown, is survived by his loving wife Aidie and sons Tiernan, Brian, Breffni and Fergus Jnr. He will be sadly missed by his family, his adored grandchildren, daughters-in-law Rebecca and Louise, son-in-law David, brothers, sisters, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives and his many friends.
His remains are reposing at his home from 2pm this Wednesday afternoon. Removal on Thursday to St Patrick & Seachnall Church, Dunshaughlin, arriving for Funeral Mass at 12 noon. Burial afterwards in adjoining cemetery. House Private on Thursday morning.
