The Tipperary GAA County Board would like to send their condolences to the Leahy family on the death of former Tipperary player Rory Leahy. A nephew of the late Paddy Leahy and brother of Seamus Leahy (Clonmel), Rory played against Clare in the first round of the minor hurling championship in 1942 but the championship was abandoned due to wartime restrictions and was not resumed until 1945. He was under age for the two years during which no championship was held.

In 1943 Rory was on the Munster Colleges team which won the All-Ireland and in the same year he was on the Tipperary senior team which won the 4 Counties League, a competition which was intended to give counties some games at a time when the National League had been discontinued. In 1944 he was again on the Tipp team which won the same competition. In 1946 he was on the Tipp team which beat Galway in the Monaghan Cup in London.

We extend our sympathy toSimon Moroney, Rúnaí / Priómh-Oifigeach Munster Council on the death of his mother- in-law   Bridie Carney RIP, and all the Carney family and friends.

May they both Rest In Peace.
