Former schoolteacher Gerard Kindlon, Monksland, Carlingford, who passed away on January 29th, 2013, will be remembered with great affection by all those in the Cooley peninsula who knew him. Gerard founded Cooley Youth Club and enjoyed a spell at Cooley Kickhams GFC. But it was in the development of schools football that he was most prominent. He coached many successful Boher NS teams down through the years and always encouraged girls to play the national game. Gerard loved all aspects of Irish culture - sport, music and language - and was a man of great faith.
