John Egan RIP
Uachtaran Chumann Luthchleas Gael Criostoir O Cuana has offered his sympathies on behalf of the Association to the family and friends of former Kerry footballer John Egan who passed away over the weekend.
The GAA President said: 'John was an iconic footballer on arguably the most iconic team of all time and his undoubted skills and dedication were handsomely rewarded in an era that will be remembered fondly by Kerry supporters for evermore.

'His role as a classy forward in the emergence and sustained brilliance of this team was a hugely significant one and admiration for his contribution to the game and by extension the Association, exists far beyond his home county.

'At this time I extend on behalf of the wider GAA family my heartfelt condolences to his immediate family, wife Mary, son John and daughter Maureen, Sneem GAA Club and his wide circle of friends.'

Solas na bhFlaitheas ar a anam uasal.
