Conroy, Peter J

The late Peter J Conry from Clogherhead, who passed on to his eternal reward on April 15, 2009 was an inspiration to many during his life. Aged 85, Peter was honorary president of both Dreadnots GFC and Louth County Board. The Sligo native only moved to Clogherhead in the late 1950s but quickly immersed himself in local affairs and became an intrinsic part of the community. He was a member of the St Brigid's underage amalgamation with Termonfeckin and held a variety of positions on the Dreadnots board as well as serving Louth County Board as vice-chairman and Leinster Council delegate. Juvenile and adult members of the club formed a Guard of Honour at the removal. Members of Clogherhead Credit Union (of which he was a founder member) and the County Board also contributed to the Guard of Honour. There were four flags draped across Peter J's coffin - those of St Brigid's, Louth, Dreadnots and the Credit Union.
