Jones, Eddie

Eddie Jones, who passed away on January 26, 2009 was one of Annagassan's oldest residents and was the last survivor of the great Dillonstown team of 1938. Dillonstown won the old Louth Second Division on Sunday October 2, 1938 when they beat Cooley by 3-2 to 2-2 in Dundalk in atrocious weather conditions. He was right corner back on that team, which was honoured in October 1988 by a special commemorative function. Eddie was a proud man and very much part of the celebrations when Naomh Fionnbarra won the IFC in 2001.
