A member of Tipperary’s great minor football team of 1955 that reached the All-Ireland final passed away in San Francisco last Thursday, May 12.
Sean Condon, who was 84-years-old, was a native of Farranalleen, Fethard.

He is survived in the US by his beloved wife Shirley, daughter Tania and grandson Lake and in Ireland by his brother Liam, who lives in Goresbridge, county Kilkenny, his sister Maureen White, living in Bray, county Wicklow and their families.
