All in Ballingarry AFC were deeply saddened to hear of the untimely passing of former player John Walsh. John played for our club from u10s to u16s. He went on to play 50 times at junior level scoring 13 goals. One of his many highlights was on May 16th 2006 when he captained our u13s team to cup glory scoring the winning goal on the day and also picking up the man of the match award.
He was also part of the group of u14s /u15s boys from Ballingarry AFC that travelled to Croagh Park on the 13th of October 2007 as the official ball boys for the Rep Of Ireland vs Germany in the 2008 Euro Qualifier game.
John was really well liked by all that knew him he will be sorely missed by his family and many friends in Ballingarry AFC. Our sincere condolences to all John’s family and friends at this very sad time.
May he rest in peace.
