Local man, Mike Sheehan and Ger were great friends. Mike is involved in the organisation of the big day on February 25th.
“Ger was a total gentleman who loved Liverpool Football Club. He had the red Liverpool cap knitted to his head – you could say.
“He was popular with young and old alike. He had a good word for everyone and he could always see the funny side of things.
Huge Circle of Friends
As a result he had a huge circle of friends. He is a huge loss to his family and to his community.
“He was a great friend and a supporter of everything local and very knowledgeable in all sports. He was a supporter of Firies GAA Club; Ballyhar Dynamos; Killorglin Golf Club and he was a founder member of the Farranfore Golf Society.
Great Pride in Farranfore
He participated, always successfully, on teams in local table quizzes and he took a great pride and an active part in Farranfore Tidy Towns efforts over the years.
“Ger was always in good form and he was the kind of person you’d look forward to meeting and being in his company.
“The day is all about remembering Ger and making a bit of money for the Kerry/Cork Health Link Bus as it was his favourite charity. We all have happy memories of him and we’ll celebrate that on the day as well,” said Mr. Sheehan.
