Sadness at passing of ladies football legend Patricia Butler

November 24, 2019

Fans make there way into Walsh Park for the Munster SHC clash between Waterford and Clare

The death has taken place of former Ballymacarbry and Waterford ladies football star Patricia Butler.

Patricia was one of the most decorated ladies footballers of all-time, winning four All-Ireland senior medals and one All-Ireland junior with Waterford as well as 10 All-Ireland club titles with Ballymacarby. Most of her successes came under the watch of former Waterford and Westmeath hurling manager Michael Ryan, who has managed / trained / coached 32 All-Ireland winning ladies football teams.

Patricia, who will be laid to rest in Fourmilewater tomorrow, was honoured at this year's All-Ireland ladies football finals in Croke Park as a member of the Waterford 1994 Jubilee team.
