Ballinrobe is in mourning this evening with the news that Fergal Loftus, Carrowkeel, Ballinrobe, passed away today after a lengthy illness that he bore with great courage.

Fergal was a member of a highly popular and respected local family. He played for our club at all levels, including senior, and was held in high esteem by colleagues and opponents alike. The Loftus family have always been strong supporters of the club and, indeed, a wide variety of other sporting and community activities in Ballinrobe and the wider south Mayo region.  

He will be sadly missed by his loving parents Vincent and Ann, sisters Majella and Jacinta, brothers Ivor and Walter, brothers-in-law David and Padraig, sister-in-law Debbie, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives, neighbours and many many friends.

Fergal’s Funeral Mass will take place privately (in accordance with COVID-19 guidelines) in St. Mary’s Church, Ballinrobe on Sunday at 12pm. (May 31st), burial afterwards in new cemetery Ballinrobe. A mass to celebrate Fergal’s life will take place at a later date.  You can express your sympathy HERE

We extend our deepest sympathy to the Loftus family at this sad time. 

John Flannelly, Chairperson, Ballinrobe GAA Club.
