Condolences to Sheehy Family

Castleisland Rugby Club members would like express their sincere condolences to the Sheehy and Hickey familes on Joe’s passing.

Joe was a former coach to many of our young, senior players on the present team and his son Joseph is a member of the current senior squad.

Joe’s funeral cortege paused outside the grounds on its way to Cordal this morning as members of the club gathered there to pay their respects. May he rest in peace.
