Tragic week

The past week has thrown local football and Waterford city and surrounding areas in to mourning with the loss of three young men who were in the prime of their lives. All in Mooncoin Celtic offer their condolences to the family and friends of Gilbert Collins and Avu Idris who tragically lost their lives in an accident last week on the Cork Road and condolences also to the family and friends of Michael Grant who passed away while away on holiday. Having experienced the loss of a young player recently ourselves in Mooncoin Celtic when we lost young Kate Corcoran last November, the clubs and soccer families of the three lads in Waterford Crystal, Villa and St Joseph’s FC respectively will feel a huge loss and will recover in time but for now it’s important to look out for each other and watch over all the young and old players in your clubs in the coming weeks and months. Three good guys have been taken way too soon, two young men who were only making their way in life in Gilbert and Avu, and a truly passionate coach and clubman in Michael Grant.
RIP Gilbert, Avu and Granter.
