Josie Murray Memorial
Thursday 24th October
Thursday was a fitting tribute to the memory of the late, great Josie Murray helped enormously by the kind sponsorship of the Murray family with the prizes being presented by Josie’s son and great Cuala man, Declan Murray. There was a very tasty provision of soup and sandwiches by Charlie and Michaela in the kitchen, also sponsored by the Murray family, and many tales were shared about the exploits of the late Josie. There were so many prizes that, as one wit remarked, ‘there was almost one for everyone in the audience’, with too many prize-winners to list here but the main winners were:- 1. PJ Sharkey (41 points); 2. Reggie Carroll (37); 3. Michael Comerton (37); 4. Aidan Sheerin (37); 5. Robbie Donaldson (37). In his acceptance speech, PJ Sharkey recalled a round of golf he had with Josie some years back in the company of another GAA legend and how much he had enjoyed the day with Josie. Thank you Declan and the Murray family.
