Leitrim GAA wishes to convey its sincere sympathies to the family of the late Oliver Casserly, Ballgawley, Co Sligo and formerly Bornacoola, Co Leitrim, who passed to his eternal reward on Thursday last, following a short illness. Oliver was a great Leitrim supporter over the years and was a staunch member of the Sligo Branch of the Leitrim GAA Supporters Club. He worked extremely hard in his promotion of all Leitrim GAA fundraising in the greater Sligo area and indeed beyond over many years and shared and enjoyed in our greatest days in the 1990’s and indeed the Connacht Championship win of 1994 was a great source of pride for Oliver in his adopted county. It is particularly poignant that on the very day that the Leitrim heroes of 1994 will be honoured at the Connacht SFC Final 25th Anniversary, Oliver will be laid to rest in Sligo.
We extend our deepest sympathies to his wife Noeleen, children Sarah, Emma, Colm and Jane, and his thirteen grandchildren, sons-in-law Ciaran, Conor and Kevin and daughter-in-law Noreen, sisters-in-law Mary, Joan and Patricia (RIP) and brothers-in-law Gerard, Joseph (RIP) and Nicholas (RIP), neighbours, relatives and friends.
Remains reposing at his family home on Saturday, 15th June, 4-9 pm. Funeral Mass on Sunday, 16th June, at 4pm in The Church of the Assumption, Sooey, with burial afterwards in Sooey Cemetery. House private on Sunday morning.
Family flowers only, donations in lieu, if desired, to Jack & Jill Children’s Foundation C/o McGowan Funeral Directors, Dromod. Donation box in Church.
