Ballinrobe GAA club wishes to join with Mayo GAA (see below) in extending our sympathy to the Feeley family on the sudden death of Alan, who played against Ballinrobe on countless occasions during his all-too-short life.
His death has come as a sickening blow to all involved with the GAA here in south Mayo. We wish the Claremorris club the very best as they struggle to come to terms with the loss of such a vibrant young man who had so much life left to live.
In our case, we think of Alan’s peers in our own club – those players who lined out against him at primary school level and right up through the ranks to senior level. Bonds are invariably formed with opponents too and we know that many of our members are deeply saddened by his death.
The Feeley family have a long connection with Ballinrobe, as his father Willie played rugby for the local RFC for many years, and also covered Ballinrobe in the course of his duties as a member of An Garda Siochana. Officers of Ballinrobe GAA club will officially represent the club at the funeral ceremonies, and we know that dozens of our members will be present too.
May he rest in peace.
Statement below is from Mayo GAA:
Everyone at Coiste Chontae Mhaigheo would like to express their sincere sympahies to the family, friends, neighbours, team-mates and club colleagues at Claremorris G.A.A. Club of the late Alan Feeley (1985 – 2013) who passed away this week.
Our prayers and heart-felt sympathies go out to his parents, Willie and Kathleen, to his brothers Hugh, Donal and Liam and to his girlfriend Louise and his many friends and fellow players.
