Shock at the sudden death of Peter McCartan

It wasn’t the news I was expecting to hear in the foyer of Breaffy House last Sunday morning as I and a few colleagues mulled around waiting for the start of the Mayo GAA convention. But when the news was broken that Peter McCartan, The Demesne, Hollymount had died the night before, it took a few minutes to register what I’d just heard. Peter wasn’t a man I knew very well, but over the past few years he was someone I’d spent time with on the side of playing fields around the county reporting on games. He was always friendly, affable and good company to be around when covering a football game. He loved his sport and his knew it inside and out and was always on hand if you missed something going on in the game. He’ll be a terrible loss from the pitches and sports pages of the county and unquestionably more to his family and a loved ones. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
