Farewell Party for Tom Earley ...

Our final event in Springfield on Saturday last was a small party organised to mark Tom Earley's retirement from the Community Employment Scheme. The esteem in which Tom is held in the Mullingar Shamrocks family was evident in the numbers who were present in The Clubhouse to mark the occasion and acknowledge the contribution of a special man. Barry Kelly, Chairman of the club's under-age committee presided and thanked Tom for his dedication and commitment to the club over the years where Tom's good humoured presence was an essential feature of our Saturday morning coaching sessions and our annual blitz tournaments. And just as the function ended an email was received from the Vatican with the information that Tom Earley was on a list for consideration for Beatification, an essential step on the road to sainthood. Pope Francis explained in the communication that any man who pleased our wonderfully efficient under-age secretary Pat Collins whoe attention to detail is reaching legendary status, with such ease had to be a saint.

We await further infornation.
