The late Mark Rooney, Glencar, Co. Leitrim and Glencar/Manorhamilton GAA Club.
Leitrim GAA wishes to express its profound sympathy to the Rooney Family, Glencar, Co Leitrim on the sad and untimely passing of the late Mark Rooney, after a long illness, bravely borne.
Mark played at the very highest level with his club Glencar/Manorhamilton, and won a SFC medal in 1999, while still eligible for Under 21 grade, as the club bridged a 22 year gap from its previous and first ever title recorded in 1977. He also shared in the clubs 2009 triumph as selector/player in the midst of the clubs four-in-a-row series of triumphs.
Mark, a multi talented sportsman, represented Leitrim at all underage grades from Under 16 to Under 21 from 1993 to the end of the millennium and was a most skillful player, in addition to being the ultimate sportsman.
He will be missed by all who were lucky enough to have known him over his all too short 38 years, but mostly by his family. We wish to record our deepest sympathies to his wife Natalie, sons Zach and OScór, mother Dympna, his brother Aidan, sister Rosaleen, brother in law Camillus, sister in law Denise, father and mother in law Tony and Patricia, nephews and nieces Nathan, Eden and Eli, his uncles, aunts, cousins, extended family and many friends.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh sé.
