Tom Brady of Tracton AC...RIP

Someone sent on a note to say that Tom Brady of Tracton AC has passed away.

From Tracton AC... Tom Brady was one of the founding members of Tracton AC. It is with great sadness that we are posting of his passing. He was very well respected throughout Cork county and further afield, both for his success on the athletics field, and for his involvement with club and county athletics boards. He was a remarkable man, and remained committed to Tracton athletics up to the time of his passing. See attached article from the Carrigdhoun Newspaper in 2017 for a further insight into his life. As a mark of respect, adult club training is cancelled this evening (Mon). The funeral arrangements are as follows:-

"On behalf of all members of Tracton AC, both adult and juvenile, I would like to take this opportunity to offer my condolences to the family of Tom Brady who passed away on Saturday 12th May. Tom was a founding member of Tracton AC and an accomplished athlete. He had many successes in the high jump and triple jump but it was in the 56lb throwing event that Tom excelled, winning numerous County titles. He also served as Chairman of the Cork County Athletics Board and President of the Munster Council working tirelessly to promote athletics. Toms hard work and commitment to Tracton AC from the clubs inception over 60 years ago to the present day cannot be underestimated. He was an absolute gentleman who always had plenty of words of encouragement for our juvenile club members, particularly at our annual Sports Day which he regularly attended. Tom will be sadly missed by everybody associated with Tracton AC. Our thoughts are with Mary, Bill, Betsy, Catherine, Tom, Jerry, Mary, David, Ellen and his extended family at this sad time. May He Rest In Peace." Billy O'Mahony, Chairman, Tracton AC.
