Barry Geraghty, RIP.
On behalf of all our members, the Committee of Lurgan Amateur Swimming Club (LASC) would like to express our deep sadness at the untimely passing of Barry Geraghty.
With his children Chloe, Jamie and Conor swimming for the club (and Niall likely to follow), Barry was a valued member of LASC, volunteering for many parent roles as well as leading the Complaints and Disciplinary Committee in his true professional and public-spirited manner. Barry made a strong contribution to LASC and to the local community more broadly, given his coaching role at St Mary’s Aghagallon GAA Club and teaching position at Lismore Comprehensive School. There will be many across the wider community who will mourn his passing.
With our deepest sympathy to Fiona and family,
Everyone at St Mary’s Aghagallon and the wider community are deeply shocked and saddened to hear of the untimely death of our esteemed member Barry Geraghty. Barry devoted a lot of his time into coaching our underage teams since 2017, being involved with P2 Boys, P3 Boys, P4 Boys, U-8 Girls, U-10 girls and was currently part of our newly established U12 girls management team alongside Ryan and Tiarna.
Fellow coaches, players and parents involved with all these teams saw at first hand the positive influence he had on everyone and how he was able to adapt the attributes from his teaching background in his ability to communicate with our children in a simple but always respectful way.
His coaching principles were best summed up in a recent message that he posted on the U12 Girls parents group after a league game on Friday night.
I think me, Ryan and Tiarna get as much enjoyment out of it as the girls to be honest. The hope is that if they enjoy it, they will stick at it. That’s the end goal. Winning matches, which albeit would be nice, was never the main objective for the season. Its getting girls involved in a team, in sport and developing all those skills and qualities of teamwork, communication, resilience etc which they will need in later life and of course developing friendships, which is perhaps the most pleasing part of it for us as coaches and parents. Success for us is having the girls wanting to go to training and games and enjoying the sport, and hopefully returning for another season next year. So well done to all the girls and parents tonight. See you all tomorrow at 1.30pm.
The message just gives a brief insight into the type of man Barry was and what a huge loss he will be to the Club and the wider community.
Our deepest condolences goes out to his wife Fiona, his daughter Chloe, and his sons Jamie, Conor and Niall at this difficult time. Barry was a true gentleman and an inspiration to us all.
May he rest in peace.
Devastated to hear of the passing of Barry Geraghty. Had so much time for me when I was a student and the main reason I went to University.
He taught, he inspired and more importantly, he cared. My Mum, who works in Lismore, says he always asked about me. Even after 20 years of being his student. That was who he was. He never stopped caring!
Was my pleasure knowing him and learning from him and my heart and soul pours out love to his family.
RIP Mr. Geraghty. You will be missed!
We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
