The Late Gerry Nangle, Park Lodge, Castleknock, Dublin 15 and formerly of Cornaroy, Drumshanbo, Co. Leitrim

Leitrim GAA is saddened to hear of the death of the late Gerry Nangle, Castleknock, Dublin and formerly of Drumshanbo, Co Leitrim, who passed to his eternal reward on Thursday last April 25th.

Gerry was a retired successful Dublin publican who never lost touch with his Leitrim roots. He was a lifelong member of the Dublin Branch of the Leitrim GAA Supporters Club and was an everpresent at the gathering of Leitrim Supporters for the Dublin launch of the fundraising event in January of each year. He loved meeting people at these gatherings and was a familiar friendly face to all comers with a word for everyone. He followed the fortunes of the Leitrim Football team all over the country and was most thrilled with the progress shown by the team in this year’s Allianz League promotion run. Gerry was a true Green and Gold Supporter and even if the fortunes of the teams were dipping, as has been experienced on many other occasions, he never had anything but a word of encouragement for their efforts and would applaud the energy of the lads equally in victory and more importantly in defeat, refusing to criticise the team in any eventuality.

We extend our sympathies to his wife Kathleen, sons Gerard and Finbarr, daughters Caitriona and Paula. Gerry will be sadly missed by his loving wife, sons, daughters, daughter-in-law Lesley, grandchildren Paul and Orla, brothers Shane, Mel, Frank and Brian, sisters-in-law, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends.

May his gentle soul rest in peace.
