Our Condolences are extended to the McGrady family on the sudden death of MB McGrady (Senior) last week. MB was a former secretary of RGU and his son Mal is a former player and current executive member and Senior Selector. Daughter Fionnuala was a camogie player of great distinction with RGU and Down and indeed was his wife Collette.
Mr McGrady’s Grandsons Conor, Michael, MB (Jnr) and Ethan are current players with RGU Downpatrick. To the entire McGrady family circle we offer our prayers and thoughts at this sad time. Mary Queen of the Gael pray for him
