David McBride, Ard Easmuinn, Dundalk passed away on April 18th, 2013, seventeen months after being diagnosed with illness. He was only 51. One of nine children of the late Larry and Kathleen McBride from St Mary's Road, he served as a dedicated teacher for over quarter of a century. David was a member of staff at Patrician High School in Carrickmacross, County Monaghan for 20 years and, as guidance teacher, he sent many young people along the correct path in life. On the GAA front, hurling was his great love. As a young man, he represented Naomh Moninne and the Louth minors. He became actively involved with Moninne again when his sons Shane and Conor started to play and, as well as coaching, he served as language and cultural officer. He represented the club on Coiste na Iomana and worked with county development squads. David was particularly proud when Shane and Conor togged out together on the same Moninne minor team. As David's remains were taken from his home to the Church of the Redeemer, members of Naomh Moninne Hurling Club provided a guard of honour.
