Kildorrery GAA Remembers Stuart
This week the club was very saddened to hear of the passing of local man and former club player Stuart Greaves who passed away after a short illness. Before we adjourned the meeting on Monday night to mark his passing members paid tribute to Stuart who was known as an unrelenting and tough opponent and who always gave a full and honest effort. He was described simply as a great footballer who lit up the North Cork final in 1990 when as a tenacious and committed seventeen year old he played a huge role in the replay against Glanworth in Fermoy where Kildorrery were to prove victorious. To the Greaves family our heartfelt condolence. He will always be fondly remembered as a quietly spoken man whose passion for the outdoors was so evident. And if you were lucky to engage in a conversation GAA related you could see his eyes sparkle with enthusiasm and joy. He was a quietly determined and truly unique man.
