Remembered as a Fine Footballer

Since the announcement of the death of Dick McCarthy on July 11th it’s his football prowess that’s remembered most vividly here.

Though he left the area many years ago that special talent is remembered. No bad legacy.

In fact on hearing of his passing, Killarney Road native and now London resident, Tom Jameson sent the following message:

“Fantastic footballer in his youth. Played No 8/9/11 on the Desmonds U-16 Co Championship winning team. Played No 11 in the final against Stacks. Wonderful ball winner, and finisher with terrific speed and strength. Could shoot long range points all day.” May he rest in Peace.
