Present and former members of the club were saddened by the news that Eddie O’Shea had passed away after a period of indifferent health. Eddie was a member of Dunmore Badminton Club for almost 40 years. His wife, Helen, and son, Paul, had also been enthusiastic members.
A quiet, unassuming man, Eddie loved his badminton and was a loyal and popular club member. He continued to attend the Tuesday morning sessions until relatively recently. Eddie’s commitment was exemplary and he always did his utmost not to let his team down.
A large group of members formed a guard of honour as his remains were carried from St Paul’s Church to the hearse prior to the sad journey to his final resting place. Dunmore Badminton Club offers its sincere sympathy to Helen and family. May he rest in peace.
