Ballinrobe GAA club join with Mayo GAA board (see their statement below) in exending sympathy to the Coen family, Lehinch, Hollymount, on the death of Nancy Coen. The Coen family are synonymous with Gaelic football in this region, and, indeed, just last September Nancy’s grand-son Stephen captained Mayo to the All-Ireland minor title. Stephen and another of Nancy’s grandsons Darren – a cousin of Stephen’s – are current members of the Mayo senior football panel.
A generation up, members of the Coen family (sons of Nancy) played with the Hollymount club for many years, while one of them, Jimmy, was a well-known referee throughout the west of Ireland. Nancy’s son Liam is the current chairman of the Hollymount-Carramore club.
