It is with a heavy heart that we must inform you of the death of Mairead Byrne. Mairead was a member of the Castlemitchell ladies team and later went on to become club secretary, A position which she held with great distinction and with the development committee on the building of the Astro Park. Mairead was a great ambassador of the club and an absolute lady. May she rest in peace.
We offer our sympathy to the Byrne, Behan, Wall and Doyle families at this sad time. All club activity has been cancelled until further notice.
