We offer our deepest sympathy to former player Vincent Guinan and all the Guinan family, The Village and the Keenan family, Ferbane on the sad death of Tessie. The large crowds who visited the house in Coosan and attended the Funeral Mass and burial reflected the esteem in which Tessie and family are held.
