Stephen Rooney Obituary, Death – It is with heavy hearts and profound sadness that the committee, players, and members of Glasdrumman GAC announce the passing of Stephen Rooney, a beloved member of our extended GAA family. Stephen’s departure leaves an indelible void in our hearts and our community, as we remember the man who brought joy and strength to those around him.
Stephen was not only a cherished father but also a respected member of our esteemed committee, where his dedication and passion for the club shone brightly. His son, Colm, who serves on our committee, carries forward the legacy of commitment and love for our club, a legacy passed down from father to son.
As a father-in-law to Lynette, a devoted club member herself, Stephen shared his warmth and kindness with the entire club family. His love extended to his grandchildren, Blaine and Taylor, who are budding stars in our juvenile ranks. Stephen’s support and encouragement undoubtedly played a pivotal role in their development as young athletes.
In this time of profound loss, we extend our deepest condolences to Stephen’s beloved wife, Linda, and his children, Colm, Stephen, Aidan, and Ciara. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all, as you navigate through this difficult period of grief. May you find strength in the cherished memories and the love that Stephen brought into your lives.
Stephen’s legacy will forever be etched in the annals of our club’s history, and his spirit will continue to inspire us on and off the field. As we bid farewell to a dedicated family man and a true pillar of our community, we say, “Ar dheis dé go raibh a anam” – may his soul rest in eternal peace.
