Tom Loftus RIP.

Monday, March 21, 2011

All associated with our club were very saddened to hear of the death of Tom Loftus. Tom was a great worker for our club when it was going through a lean spell in the 1980s. He was involved in the GAA in Dublin for many years and was elected Chairman of their County Board for a number of years. He was also Chairman of Leinster Council from 1972 to 1974. After retiring from his job in the ESB, Tom came to live in Bray in 1981 and immediately got involved with our club and the North East Wicklow Juvenile Board. He worked tirelessly for the Emmet's to keep the club functioning and also promoting juvenile games in the North East. Our club and the North East Board were very fortunate to have a person with Tom's vast experience to guide them. Our club provided a guard of honour at the funeral on Wednesday 9th March.

Representatives of Central Council, Leinster Council and Wicklow County Board were present. Many of the past members of the North East Board were also there to say goodbye to their former colleague. Also there were our two Presidents, Jackie Napier and Tom Walsh. It was fitting that Tom Walsh sang the 'West Awake' at the graveside for his great friend. Our condolences to his daughter Marie, sons Paul and Thómas and their extended family.

We would like to thank the following for their recent sponsorship
