A dark cloud of deep sadness and sorrow swept over the town of Carrick-on-Shannon and surrounding area’s on Wednesday last when news broke of the sudden and untimely passing of our dear friend and colleague Bernard Murray. Bernard, known widely as Bertie to his many, many friends, was a hugely popular figure in the club and town. He was a player with and great supporter of St. Mary’s GAA and Carrick Hurling Club. Bernard represented the club at all levels in football, giving everything he had in training, playing and volunteering. He represented all that was good in sport and in humanity itself. He mightn’t always have agreed with his opponents but he always respected them and he was unique in that he had the respect and friendship of every player that he played with and against. Bernard’s sporting life reflected his personal life, always respectful, always willing to serve, always thinking of others and putting them before himself, always being selfless and generous in every way that he knew. After serious illness Bernard showed amazing resilience to return to the playing fields, back among his friends. His community life extended to many other clubs, societies and organisations and the full extent of his contribution to the life of our community is beyond measure.
Bernard was predeceased by his beloved mother Mena. We offer our deepest sympathy and support to his heartbroken father Johnny, his sisters Kathy and Caroline, his brother in law Olcan, his nephews, Eoghan and James and his niece Mena and his many relatives and friends.
While we will all miss Bernard terribly and will take some time to come to terms with his departure from us, we are grateful for his life and pray for comfort and healing for all who mourn his passing.
Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details. Thanking you in advance for your support and generosity.
