RIP Cyril O'Flaherty

  • PDF

Cyril contribution to football went beyond Clonmel Town. For many years he was on the committee of the TSDL and served as Chairman on South Tipperary's governing body. He was also a member of the Tipperary Sports Panel, an honour he was most proud of. His concern for the growth and welfare for football was almost up most in Cyril thoughts. He was a man with deep convictions on how they game should be played and administered. Cyril was a larger than life character and was one of our club's favourite sons. It is impossible to come to terms that we won't see him around the Complex again but Cyril hasn't gone to far he has merely moved location. No doubt when ever a Town team takes to the field, there will be a twelfth man on the pitch. Each and everyone of us in Clonmel Town are very honoured and privileged to have known and worked alongside him. We will do everything to maintain the high standards at the club, standards by which Cyril helped to create. Cyril O'Flaherty's and his memory will live long and never be extinguished. God rest you Cyril. We will never forget you.
