Gael McManus Obituary, Death – On Thursday, Gerry McManus, a former player, coach, and Executive Member of Gaeil Colmcille, passed suddenly after a brief battle with sickness. He was 65 years old. Gaeil Colmcille are extremely upset by the news of his passing and wish to pay tribute to him as an authentic Gael in every way. He was known as Gaeil Colmcille to the backbone all those years ago, when Gerry was serving on the club’s very first Executive Committee. Those years are now in the past. During Gaeil Colmcille’s championship run in the Keegan Cup in 1966, Gerry was a very effective goalie who came in as a substitution for the team. He played for Gaeil Colmcille.
Gerry, who was waiting his turn patiently, was his club’s goalie in 1968 when they won the Keegan Cup by defeating Walterstown. Walterstown was the team they played against. They have now won the cup twice in the last three years thanks to this victory.
After that, Gerry assumed a number of roles within Gaeil Colmcille, one of which was that of Team Selector in the year 1991, the same year that Gaeil Colmcille won their third Keegan Cup.
Gerry is survived by his loving and compassionate wife, Moll, as well as his son Colm, who serves as the Chairperson of the Meath Ladies, his daughter Carol (Thornton), who serves as the Secretary of the Gaeil Colmcille, and his daughter Geraldine.
The celebration to bid farewell to the Gaelic Centre, a site where Gerry would have spent a significant amount of time, has been rescheduled for the weekend of November 26. The postponing of this event is being done out of respect for Gerry, who died away not too long ago.
