CONDOLENCES

Dungarvan Golf Club would like to extend its sincere sympathies to the family of our

much-loved member Tess O’Brien who sadly passed away on Sunday 20th December after a brief illness. Tess joined Dungarvan Golf Club last year and was always a joy to meet both on and off the course. A warm and friendly lady who could light up a room with her smile. Tess was so happy when her daughter Teresa and grand-daughter Katie joined Dungarvan Golf Club this year and they were looking forward to playing their beloved game of golf together. Tess was a wonderful member, so positive and enthusiastic and always had a kind word for everyone. We offer our sincere condolences to her loving husband J.J, daughters Breda and Teresa, son John, grandchildren and extended family members. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam.
