Young Oisin Williams -Cloghjordan RIP

(Oldest Posts First)

just seeing this here on the general news, how sad, condolences to his family and friends and secondly his club and supporters etc. It is a very very tough time on young people, and I hope when the powers that be are reviewing essential things for 5th April, surely to God training can resume locally for with the necessary restrictions for all sports. Our thoughts are with this young man and his family tonight.RIP.

There is nothing that can prepare you for this kind of awful tragedy. Hope his family can cope in time.
May he rest in peace.

I know its sad and tragic, but by acknowledging his passing here in forum, his family and friends will see/hear that we as GAA supporters are fully aware of their grief and acknowledging their son is remembered. Thanks all for your kind words.

I hear what your saying, if it gets parents talking about that very thing (lifting restrictions as best as possible) it will be worth it, and hopefully the Government will see enough positives to allow our youngster back training at the very least everyone would be happy with at this stage...we don't know or are not inferring any connection with the purpose of this post, I am merely saying it will be a welcome relief hopefully if some return to sports is permitted after April...nothing wrong with saying that..this young man and his family are all that matters right now..

There has been a number of unfortunately similar outcomes in many houses all over Ireland during these lockdowns adding to all already growing trend in this country. The Government need to give more consideration to this issue in these lockdown decision making.
Dont underestimate how big a lift and distraction the All Ireland championships were to so many people last September to December, gave an interest and something to look forward to watching each weekend. RIP to this young man.

Oisin's club Kilruane Mcdonaghs ran a Cheltenham fundraiser and the club decided to donate €500 from that to counselling services for its juvenile members and another €500 to Pieta House, nice touch.

The GAA intercounty last autumn kept me sane anyway..the games were a bit strange with little or no crowds but by God they were a great source of "escapism" for me and thousands..getting the youngsters back at whatever code of sport they play is critical now, in a safe manner and I will go as far as to say even if the numbers are not too low...us adults will survive if we know our children are living some sort of normality again...I honestly think underage should have been allowed with restrictions...one size was not needed to fit all in this case..anyway..we will see..thanks for your post.
