Rhode GAA express our Deepest Sympathy to the Leavy Family on the  Passing of Paudge Leavy . 


Paudge will be sadly missed by all who knew him especially, deeply regretted by his loving  wife Mary, sadly missed by his loving family sons & Daughters Teresa, Tom. Brendan, Ger, Mary Pat & Danny grand-children , brother John,brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, daughters- in-law, nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives, neighbours and friends


Rhode has lost one of its greatest Characters in Paudge Leavy.  Paudge enjoyed life to the fullest enthralling many with his stories and humour over a few pints. Paudge was also an avid gardener where he grew spuds and Veg in which he took great pride in.  Both Paudge and Mary were avid followers of the Rhode football teams down through the years and this passion followed onto all their children who are all wonderful supporters of the club and our teams. Pat, Tom . Brendan Ger & Danny all played for the club at under-age and Adult Level. In those Years Pat served on the club committee, Danny Served as assistant Secretary and Brendan went on to serve as Vice Chairman. It was always a pleasure to Visit Paudge and Mary with the Dowling Cup over the years and a great welcome was always given by them both but most especially Paudge who would have us in stitches. Memories like those should never be forgotten

Paudges Funeral Mass took place on Thursday afternoon last in St.Peters Church Rhode followed by burial to the adjoining cemetery 


Rest In Peace Paudge .
