All at St Johns GAA club were shocked to hear of the death of Padraig O'Grady,RIP, Laghey, Donegal and formally of Ballinacarrow and Carraroe, who passed away last week. Padraig was the captain of the then newly-formed St Johns team that won their first Sligo Junior title in 1988. He was a fine footballer and a great man for our community, where he served as our parish priest. Even after he moved on from Carraroe, Padraig maintained a great interest in the fortunes of St Johns and kept up to date on all the current club activities. To his wife Tina, daughter Katie, sons Tom and Ultan, granddaughter Mia, mother Annie, brothers and sisters we extend our sincere sympathy. May his gentle soul forever Rest In Peace.
