The club and parish was devastated this week as the news of the untimely passing of Bernard Leahy filtered through. Bernard was a hugely popular club man, who was admired and liked by young and old alike. He played with his beloved Lattin/Cullen from his earliest days and played his final game with the club on St. Patricks day last. On the field, though not the biggest in size, he compensated with his determination, courage and raw passion. He loved Lattin/Cullen, and his enthusiasm was infectious. He was a very popular coach to the clubs u10’s last year. As a gifted cabinet maker, the players in the club, young and old, availed of his fantastic hands by sending hurleys to him for repair. This was never too much trouble for him, and the results were always perfect. The huge turnout for his funeral was a testament to the kind of person he was, who endeared himself to so many. Our club will never be the same again without his presence, but we look back and count ourselves fortunate to have shared his presence and good humour. To the Leahy and Gleeson families, his lovely wife Noreen and little son, Tomàs, the club offers our sincere sympathies. Ar dheis Dè go raibh a anam.


Well done to Shane O’Grady who won a bronze medal in the U10 boys handwriting county final in Roscrea on Saturday. Best of luck to our U12 draughts team in the Munster final in UL next Saturday.

The Junior A team defeated Glen Villa by 2 -0 in last Sunday’s Division Two game at Aisling Park. The goals were scored by Chris Power and Alan Hayes. This win moves the team level on points with Killenaule Rovers and these two will now do battle for the league title in Cullen next Sunday. Hopefully, there will be plenty of local people there to support the team.

St. David’s organised a medal presentation in the clubhouse last Saturday for the club’s U.12 team which won the County Division One title and the U.13s which finished runners-up in the Premier League.
