Former and present players and management of Ballingarry AFC were saddened by the news of the death of former player, following a short illness, Micheál Mulcahy on Monday April 25th 2016 last.
Micheál, or Kimo as he was widely known, made his debut for the clubs B team on the 29th of November 1992 during a Division 3 league game at home to Bally Rovers. He would play during ten seasons for the club making all but four of his appearances for the A team. While he was unlucky not to have won a winners medal during his career he was part of the squad that won promotion to the Premier Division in 1993/94 and he was part of both squads that reached the Division 1 league cup finals of 2000 and 2002.
Following his retirement from the game he would continue to contribute to the club by managing at underage level and in more recent times with the ladies teams where he was part of the management setup that secured the ladies triple in 2013/14. He will be remembered as a highly skillful player with a silky touch that enabled him to beat his man with ease and a possessor of a keen eye for a pass. By the time he played his last game for the club on August 28th 2002, a Division 1 league cup game at home to Kildimo United, he had totalled 104 games for the club scoring 13 goals.
An extremely popular figure within the parish of Ballingarry and the wider area he will be sadly missed by all that knew him. Ballingarry AFC would like to offer its condolences to his parents John and Ita, brothers Johnny and Donal, sisters Catherine and Eithne, uncles, aunts, cousins, relatives, neighbours and many friends.
May he rest in peace.
