In his acceptance speech, Rathdowney-Errill captain Paddy Purcell dedicated the win to Jimmy.The club paid tribute to him in the match programme and, with their permission, we republish that here.Sadly on the 10th of October Jimmy Bergin went to his eternal rest, he was 88 years young.On behalf of the Errill GAA club, and the Rathdowney-Errill GAA club we would like to pay tribute to the late and great Jimmy Bergin.Jimmy was a lifetime supporter of the Errill club and whole heartedly behind the RathdowneyErrill club.Jimmy served the club as grounds man for the past 22 years with dedication, devotion and enormous pride.Jimmy could be spotted daily making the journey to the field on his Massey 135 with mower on tow or transport box filled with powerwasher, strimmer, and lawnmower, shovel, rake and nap sack.When passing Jimmy on the road you would get the customary thumbs up signal, that was his way of saying hello and all is good.Jimmy was an enthusiast of vintage tractors and machinery and restoring old to new, he could turn his hand to anything and keep the gang mower going well past it’s sell by date, it was only Jimmy who knew it’s slight tweak’s and adjustments that we required to keep the field cut to his very own high standards.As many of you who knew Jimmy, knew he also drove buses, and his beloved wife Lucy and he often transported the Errill set dancer and Scor crew to different competitions all over the country.Jimmy treated the Errill GAA field as if he was looking after the best room in the house, always looking it’s best and lying wait of it’s callers and visiting teams.Often visiting teams could be heard complimenting the club on the condition of the pitch and how well the grounds and facilities were kept.Jimmy was a constant positive presence with Errill GAA and a presence that we as a club are going to deeply miss. Jimmy was extremely generous; he had a good nature and kind heart. To coin the phrase, that man was a legend in his own field, Jimmy was a legend of his own right, and a legend in our club and our field and his reputation precedes him far and wide.To his family, his son Seamus, daughter in law Claire and grandchildren Mary, Sinead and Liam we extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to you all.Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.SEE ALSO – All of the results and reports from Day 1 of the Cumann na mBunscol football finals WhatsApp WhatsApp TAGSErrill Facebook Kelly and Farrell lead the way as St Joseph’s claim 2020 U-15 glory GAA Previous articleLaois Heritage hosting conference to celebrate all the county has to offerNext articleIn Pictures: All of the images from the Cumann na mBunscol Football Finals for 2019 LaoisToday Reporter Pinterest Facebook Pinterest Here are all of Wednesday’s Laois GAA results By LaoisToday Reporter – 25th October 2019 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Home News Community Tributes paid to Errill great Jimmy Bergin NewsCommunity GAA last_img read more
