Sad News As Rathnew Loses A One In A Million Lady, Ann McDonald

Share This Post


Heartbreaking news comes from Rathnew this morning with the news that legendary Rathnew GAA woman Ann McDonald has sadly passed away.

We would be guilty of the over use of the word legend but in Ann’s case the term legend doesn’t come close to covering the amazing woman she was and the huge impact she had on each and every member of Rathnew GAA club. There’s not a player in Rathnew who hasn’t in some way shape or form been influenced and inspired by Ann to take up and play in the famous Red & Green of Rathnew.

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to Ann’s family and friends and all in Rathnew GAA club who dearly loved Ann and her legacy will forever live on in the players who put on that red and green jersey. May She Rest in Peace.
