DR JOE Meehan RIP 5/5/2016

Dr Joe Meehan Vice-President & loyal Friend of Deuglán Naofa GAA Club Ardmhór  - (RIP)

 

Ardmore GAA and wider Community are in Mourning after the sudden bereavement of our Trusted, Loyal and Great Friend Doctor Joe Meehan. After a short illness Ardmore GAA Club and the entire community have lost its dearest and most loyal friend.

The words from George Bernhard Shaw spring to mind– “I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can”.

The aforementioned words utterly epitomise exactly how Dr. Joe lived and served us in the parish of Ardmore for over 35 years. Dr Joe never counted days but made every day count in his professional duties as a GP and no amount of words or superlatives would do justice to a man who meant so much to so many people.
There is a state of disbelief in the parish that Our Vice President has been taken from his family and community. Dr Joe touched everybody with his loving care in both the parishes of Ardmore/Grange and Clashmore/Kinsalebeg as a mentor, friend, GP and trusted confidant.
Dr Meehan followed in the foot-steps of Dr. McNamara (RIP - Club President) by providing his expert medical knowledge to our Club, across all grades. Many an injury & pain were treated by Joe and players will have their own special stories on how the maestro mended the walking wounded and prepared them for duty in the Blue & White of Deuglán Naofa.

Deuglán Naofa GAA Members/Patrons, Players and friends extends its deepest sympathy to his wife Margaret, his children Patrick, Marianne & Jennifer and to the Meehan & Quinn families. We all mourn your great loss and assure all of you of our thoughts and prayers at this most difficult time.

We thank Dr. Joe for the great memories he has left us and may the sod lay lightly on his chest.
