The late Micheal Loughlin, Glasnevin, Dublin and Ballinaglera, Co Leitrim
 
One of the great Leitrim GAA Supporters, the late Michéal Loughlin was the first Chairman of the Leitrim GAA Supporters Club in Dublin. He was so passionate as a supporter he used to attend the Leitrim team training sessions in Dublin. After a game he would recall every move, every kick, every score and every wide that he claimed he would have scored himself. He was always great to meet and the one thing with Mick was he was never in a hurry. He was always up for a song with Lovely Leitrim top of the list followed by the Joe Dolan’s  song ‘More & More’ His favourite Leitrim players were Mickey Quinn & Mickey Martin
 
Mick retired as an Inspector of Taxes 5 years ago. He coped heroically and most positively with an illness over the past 5 years during which he taught us all a lot about life and the values that really matter. The sudden end has come as a shock to all.
 
The Leitrim GAA Supporters Club would like to extend their sympathy to his family & friends particularly his sisters Teresa, Eileen, Margaret, Madeline, Laureen, brothers Gene, Cyril, Seán, Noel, brothers and sisters-in-law; aunt Margaret, uncle Ted and all his extended family.
Michéal was laid to rest in Fahy Cemetry on Monday last, July 4, following his funeral mass in St Hughs Church, Ballinaglera.
 
Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.
