It was with great sadness that everyone connected to Ballingarry AFC learned of the sudden death following a short illness of Maurice (Mossie) Doody on Wednesday June 4th 2014 last.
Mossie had a long association with Ballingarry soccer club dating back to its formation in February 1984 when he was a founder member. Since then his involvement had been constant and during that time he held positions on the Management Committee and as Chairperson. He managed the clubs A team from 1984 to 1993 while he was also one on the first people to become a Lifetime member of the club when this facility became available in 2009.
At the time of his passing he was acting Club President having been elected to that position in 2001. This was a position he excelled in proving himself an extremely active President never failing to attend a club function when the occasion arose. Mossie was one of life’s true gentlemen, he took great pride from his involvement in Ballingarry AFC and while he was honoured to be the clubs President it’s equally true to say that it was a great honour for the club to have Mossie as its President. There now exists a void that will be difficult to fill.
It was a great privilege and honour to have known and worked with Mossie over the last thirty years. The club would like to offer its deepest condolences to his wife Celine, son Pat, a former player, daughters Suzanne, Marie, Regina, sons-in-law, daughter-in-law, grandchildren and his many friends and relations. Also to the many friends he had within Ballingarry AFC, Mossie will be greatly missed.
May he rest in peace.
