RIP Jimmy Stapleton

The Society wishes to acknowledge Jimmy Stapleton and on behalf of all of our members, extend sincere condolences to his wife Nuala, club members Seamus, Steven, Noel and family on his passing.

Jimmy was one of the original members of our Society when it was founded in 1992. 

He held the position of President in 2000 and in 2009 won the Presidents Prize to add to his All Ireland JB Carr medals in 2002,2003,2004 won with Charleville GC. He also collected a very precious Irish Independent Golfer of the Month Award in July1999. All that knew Jimmy would call him a sportsman, a rogue and a gentleman. For all of the these traits and his great personality he was loved by all and we will miss him dearly.

There is a major probability that there is good fourball currently underway in Paradise with Jimmy, Jerry Molyneaux, Mike McCarthy & Paddy Trainor - and all of the other dearly departed Society members queued up for the coming days.

A legend departed. May he rest in peace.
