Joe McDonagh and Jack Boothman pass on - Rest in Peace

Sad to hear the untimely passing of former President of the GAA, Joe McDonagh following on the recent death of another President, Jack Boothman. I had the pleasure of meeting both men in California back in the 90's, Jack, the first protestant President of the GAA with a very calm affable style. Joe was the inspirational guy who led the crowd with The Wests Awake after a stirring cúpla focal as gaeilge by Joe Connolly in 1980 All Ireland (which I also had the pleasure of attending). Great to have had these lovely men lead our Association. Rest in Peace.
