McKeown, Patsy

Patsy McKeown of 17 Park Avenue passed away at his home on May 19th, 2013, aged 84. A decade ago, Patsy became the oldest organ recipient in Ireland when he received a kidney transplant. From Ballybarrack, he loved gaelic football and was an ardent supporter of St Brides and Louth all his life. Memorabilia from 1957 - including the All-Ireland final match programme - took pride of place in Patsy's home. Members of St Brides GFC provided a guard of honour as he was laid to rest in Saint Fursey's Cemetery.
