RIP: William Smith - Down GAA Irish and Cultural Officer
It is with great sadness that I am writing to you to let you know of the death this evening of our Irish and Cultural Officer William Smith. William was a man who served the GAA in this County with distinction, with his Club Glasdrumman, as Chairperson of the South Down Committee , as Vice Chairperson of the County Committee and most recently as Irish and Cultural Officer.
His wise counsel will be missed by each and everyone of us, a man with a passion for all things Irish, We were privileged to be able to call William a friend and a colleague.
On behalf of the family that is Down GAA we extend our sympathies to his wife Aileen, his sons and daughters, his grandchildren and the Gaels of his beloved Glasdrumman.
At Dheis Dé go raibh a anam.
