Tributes Paid Following The Sudden Passing of Sean Holmes

The Limerick GAA community has paid tribute to Sean Holmes who passed away suddenly on Wednesday. An Oola club man, Sean was a selector for the Limerick U20s football side and part of Gerry O’Sullivan’s backroom team.

Speaking to Sporting Limerick, Limerick GAA Chairman John Cregan says Sean’s passing came as a terrible shock.

“The news of Sean’s passing was met with shock last night. Sean was a very unassuming man and a great knowledge of football and particularly of the younger players”

“To his wife Trish and his two boys and indeed to his brother Dennis who is a colleague of mine on Limerick County board and has been for many years, we extend our deep sympathy at this very sad time for them.”

Limerick GAA secretary Mike O’Riordan echoed the sentiments of his colleague and said

“We would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Sean Holmes. He was a integral part of the U20s football set up this year and last year and would have been involved in previous minor teams.

“Every member of those panels looked up to Sean. He was the kind of guy that would put the arm around a player if things weren’t going well.”
