It is with great sadness that we mark the passing of one of our club patrons Fr. Pat Ramsbottom. Fr. Ramsbottom came to the parish as parish priest in 1993 and after his retirement he continued to reside in the parish. He always showed a keen interest in the club.
He has baptised, confirmed and married many of our members. He has helped so many – more than maybe he even realised. He was a saint among men. Heaven has truly welcomed a special one. Sólás geal na bhFlaithis ar a anam
