“To Debbie, Jack and Alex, we extend our sincere sympathies. Our condolences also to Mark, the extended Griffin, Hurley and O’Donovan families and in particular to Helen. A Guard of Honour will be arranged and those participating are asked to wear Club colours.”

We send our condolences to his close family and friends at this time, May Padraigh Griffin  rest in peace amen.
