It was with shock and much sadness that we heard the news that Liam Quigley had passed away suddenly. Liam had just been elected back onto the Management Committee and was enthusiastic about the future of the club. Indeed Liam had served Clones Golf Club well standing as President and Captain and in various roles during his time on the Management Committee. Clones Golf Club extends sincere sympathy to Liam’s wife Gay and their sons Donal and Darragh. May he rest in peace.
