With Sympathy – The Executive Committee and members of St. Enda’s GAA regret to announce the passing of our long serving handball stalwart John Smith. A renowned Gael, John (82) was well known throughout the country for his love of Irish culture, our music, our language and our games, but he was particularly fond of the game of handball. He was a founding member of Omagh Handball Club and was also a key driver in the founding of Loughmacrory Handball Club in 1967. The Requiem Mass took place on Tuesday (15th Dec) at 2pm in St. Mary’s Church, Killyclogher. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
