Dinny Hollywood Death | Passed Away | Obituary
Dinny Hollywood Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Dinny Hollywood.
Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.
This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.
It is with great sadness that the committee of St Michael’s GFC Newtownhamilton pass on the condolences of the entire club and wider community on the passing of our club President Dinny Hollywood.
A simple statement at this time will in no way convey the work, commitment and service Dinny gave to St Michael’s GFC throughout his lifetime. Although Dinny first became involved in the GAA as a player on a parish team, it became apparent very quickly that Dinny’s heart lay in working towards the resurgence of a St Michael’s team in Newtownhamilton. As one of the key drivers in the reformation of St Michael’s in 1974, Dinny became a name synonymous with the club throughout Armagh county and beyond over the subsequent 45 years.
As a manager of both senior and underage teams, a mentor, chairman, secretary and groundsman there was no role Dinny didn’t fill at some point over the last 45 years. On the field he was at the helm as manager when the Club broke through and won a league title in 1980 and a junior championship in 1987. In his capacity as an administrator he was instrumental in the purchase of the lands that are now home to the club’s playing field now. Although the club has enjoyed much success since its reformation it has also seen some lean and baron years and it was during these times that Dinny excelled as a constant presence whose sole motivation was the preservation and betterment of St Michael’s.
A unique and committed Gael who’s service and devotion to his club stands head and shoulders above his piers, Dinny devoted his life to his club. He will be truly missed and is irreplaceable to us all. Go ndéana Dia trócaire ar a anam.
