A sad day for Wicklow GAA on the passing of Michael Murphy

It is with deep sadness that hear of the passing of Michael Murphy. Michael was secretary of Wicklow GAA from 2004 to 2015 and is the current secretary of St. Patricks GAA Club and is Wicklow’s representative on Leinster Council.

Michael was born and raised in Ballincollig, Co. Cork. He moved to Wicklow Town in June 1976 to work with An Post. After briefly playing for St. Patricks Michael took over as Juvenile Secretary om the club and over the years served on numerous committees including the Minor Board and the North District Board.

In 2004 Michael was appointed as administrator of Wicklow GAA and quickly established himself as a popular and efficient fixture in the GAA community in Wicklow and with his provincial and national colleagues. Michael will be missed by all Wicklow Gaels and fellow officers.

On behalf of Wicklow GAA we send our condolences to Michael’s wife Angela, sons Mark and Ian, daughter Rhona, daughter in law Aileen, brother Liam and sister Margaret and all his extended family. May he rest in peace.
