The passing of Anne Cunningham of St Thomas’ club has brought back fond memories of a dedicated servant of Camogie in Galway. The Ardrahan native gave a lifetime of service to the St Thomas’ camogie and hurling clubs and took immense pride in watching her son Anthony achieve much success on the sporting fields. However, it was her service to camogie that will be fondly remembered in the county. Anne was involved in St. Thomas’ camogie club from the early eighties serving at all levels within the club and was also delegate to the Galway County Board. Anne Cunningham served on many committees in Galway Camogie Board over the years. Anne was always ready to help out at every level of the association without ever wanting the limelight and her hands on approach and carefully selected words were an inspiration to many. Ann was honoured for her service to Galway camogie with the positions of Vice President and President, before being made Honourary Life President following the passing of Frank O’Grady who had held the position for many years.
Galway Camogie Board extend sincere sympathies to her sons Mathew and Anthony, daughters Grace and Regina, in-laws, grandchildren, sister and brother and extended family.
May her gentle soul rest in peace.
