A Carlow GAA club has been plunged into mourning following the death of one of its brightest prospects.
Eoin Byrne was a rising star of Clonmore GFC, which is the club of Leinster Council chairman Jim Bolger. He scored 1-1 from centre forward when Clonmore defeated Mount Leinster Rangers in the county minor 'B' football championship final two years ago and had only lined out last weekend against Palatine in Carlow's new U19 championship.
Since sympathy is extended to his family.
Clonmore GFC is in mourning following the death of one of our finest young players Eoin Byrne today. Eoin was centre-forward on our 2017 MFC winning team & played for our U19s last Friday The club extends deepest sympathy to the Byrne & McCarney families. May Eoin Rest in Peace. pic.twitter.com/m5v2nd0f6g— Clonmore GFC (@ClonmoreGFC) November 10, 2018
