Sympathies: Tulach Sheasta GAA Club extends its sincerest sympathy to the family of the late John Ryan (Cregaun) of Madaboy, Murroe and formerly of Ashroe, Newport. John was a very prominent under-age player with Newport, winning a North Under 12 'B' Hurling title in 1978 and a county Under 16 'A' Football crown in 1982, before moving to Murroe.

The 'Cregauns' had a rich hurling history in both Tipperary and Limerick. John's father, Pat, and his uncle Mick helped bring the first championship to Newport (Junior Hurling 1924) and they went on to win a North Tipp Senior Hurling title in 1932. Mick also won a Junior All Ireland with Tipperary in 1926 and lined out with the county in a number of league games. Having transferred to Murroe they soon rose to prominence with Limerick, Mick winning two All Ireland senior titles and three National Leagues, while Pat collected two League medals.
