Denis Hayes RIP - 20/05/2020

Carbery Rangers GAA Club  members and the community in Rosscarbery were saddened to hear of the death of club stalwart Denis Hayes this morning. RIP 

Denis gave a lifetime of service to the club as a player, administrator, Scór Officer and one of our greatest supporters up to the time of his death.

He was an outstanding corner back on the successful 1955 Minor team St Fachtnas, (composed of players from Carbery Rangers and Kilmacabea ) that won the West Cork Minor Championship for the first time and went all the way to the county final only to lose out to Nemo Rangers.
He also played Junior championship with the club in the 50’s and 60’s.

He served the club in various capacities from the 1950’s right up to the present. He was a most efficient and conscientious Runai of the club for many years and served as delegate to the West Cork Board where he was highly respected. He acted as the clubs Co-ordinator for the Cork GAA clubs draw and promoted this draw at every opportunity as he had a deep and lifelong interest in all county board matters and was a great supporter of all Cork teams and travelled with his family all over the country supporting them. He served the club and the West Cork Board as a Scor Officer and 
always had a keen interest in this aspect of the GAA.

In later years his family home became the headquarters for the club lotto where all GAA matters local and national were discussed, analysed and debated.

Denis was a true gentleman and will be a huge loss to the club but most importantly to his family, his late wife Betty RIP, daughters , Geraldine, Catherine and Deirdre and sons Anthony, Brendan and Denis RIP.

Ar dheis De go raibh a h-anam dhilis.

John Murphy, Chairman Carbery Rangers Gaa Club.
