Kieran was one of life's true gentleman,and his love of all things, relative to his Cashel roots,was very evident whenever you had a conversation with him.His strong passion,particularly,for both G.A.A. and Politics,was always to the fore,and he always let you know where he stood,without being forceful about it.His passing will leave a great void in our parish of Cashel,and he will be greatly missed.To his grieving relatives and friends,we extend our deepest sympathy.May his Soul Rest in Peace.
