Sympathy: It is with saddened hearts that we learned of the passing of the late Tommy Moylan R.I.P., husband of Mary, father of Moira (O'Meara), Thomas and Eamon. On behalf of everyone in C.L.G. Tulach Sheasta we extend our deepest sympathy to the Moylan family on their sad loss. Tommy Moylan was a loyal and lifelong supporter of Newport and Tipperary teams, seldom missing a match involving club or county. In his playing days he lined out with Mulcaire Rovers teams during the 1950's and served on the committee of that club in its final years before disbandment. He was involved in the development of Newport Juvenile Club and followed the fortunes of local teams in all grades. Quiet-spoken but engaging, Tommy was always ready to converse on any GAA-related topic and was never slow in expressing an opinion on the issues of the day. His presence will be sorely missed at games across the country.  Ar dheis Lámh Dé go raibh a anam.
