It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing of Rory Flannery yesterday.
One of the great club servants, Rory held various administrative positions in the Nenagh Éire Óg club at juvenile and adult level. From his roles as one of the founding members of the club lotto and one of the key men involved in the formation of the Nenagh Éire Óg juvenile club in the early 1980s. Rory served as adult Club Chairman from 1999 to 2003. More recently, he represented the club at County Board level. One of the club’s greatest supporters, Rory hardly ever missed a club or county game of any kind.
The Flannery family have long been associated with the Nenagh Eire Óg club and Rory was first and foremost a family man to whom he was so dedicated and of whom he was so proud. We have all suffered a great loss, so how much greater must be the loss to his own family and extended family to whom is offered our deepest sympathy.
Funeral arrangements are as follows: Reposing in Ryan’s Funeral Home, Nenagh, this Sunday from 4 o’c to 7 o’c. Remains arriving to St. Mary’s of the Rosary Church, Nenagh, on Monday for Requiem Mass at 12 noon. Burial afterwards in Lisboney New Cemetery.
As a mark of respect, the club will be closed on Monday 12th November and this week’s lotto draw has also been cancelled.
