Ballinrobe GAA Club extends deepest sympathy to the Vaughan family, Abbey Street, Ballinrobe, on the death of Eddie Vaughan, Allowdale, Ballymaquirke, Kanturk, Co. Cork.
Eddie had been ill for a short period of time. He was father of John Vaughan, a well-known local businessman who has always been supportive of Ballinrobe GAA Club and other sporting and community pursuits in the town. For many years, Vaughan Shoes, an award-winning business owned and operated by the Vaughan family, were generous sponsors of our club senior team.
Donal, Eddie’s grandson, played with the club at all levels, winning county minor and U21 titles, and bringing great distinction to the club as a consistent member of the Mayo senior team over the past decade. In recent seasons, Donal has played his club football with Castlebar Mitchels.
In accordance with HSE guidelines, Eddie’s funeral will take place privately. He is mourned by his wife Mary; son, John; daughter, Marjorie; grandchildren, Ailish, Donal, Laura, Grace, Katie and Mary; great-grandchild, Rory; brothers, Denis and Dan Joe; daughter-in-law, Tricia; brother-in-law, Tim; nephews; nieces; relatives and friends.
John Flannelly, Chairman, Ballinrobe GAA Club.
