McCabe, Paddy

Wolfe Tones GFC lost a true legend with the passing of Paddy McCabe over the August Bank Holiday weekend, 2013. Paddy and his late brother Johno had been synonymous with the club. Paddy was part of the great Wolfe Tone Macardle Cup winning teams of the late '50s and early '60s (which produced most of the club's greatest players) and he also had the honour of representing Louth with distinction. After his playing days ended, he was often seen along the sidelines, helping out the next generation of Tones footballer. On any given day, he would be in McCabes shop on Duleek Street talking GAA with his many friends. Players past and present formed a guard of honour as Paddy was laid to rest alongside Johno in Calvary Cemetery.
