The club offers it's sympathies to the Taaffe family Legga on the passing of John Taaffe after an illness. John passed away in Dublin having previously spent a number of years in New York. John had a strong interest in Gaelic games and was a keen follower of the fortunes of his native Dromard and Longford. May he rest in peace.
