Sad day for Carbery GAA as very popular St Mary's clubman passes away

CARBERY GAA has been rocked by the sudden death of former divisional chairman John Corcoran earlier today.

The very popular St Mary’s clubman (current chairman of the club) finished his term as Carbery chairman in December and was a former senior selector to the Cork senior football team, among many other roles.

In a recent Gleanings column, after his time as Carbery chairman ended, Tom Lyons wrote: ‘It was the end of an era in a way with chairman John Corcoran stepping down after completing his three-year term. His term of duty goes back much further than that as he also served as PRO, vice-chairman and club delegate. He has been a huge presence at the board for many years and he will be sorely missed for his colourful character, his razor-sharp wit and his knowledge of every facet of the GAA. His service down the years has been outstanding.’

The thoughts of all at The Southern Star are with his family and friends.
