It was sad to hear the news that Eamon Mongey, one of the key members of Mayo’s All-Ireland senior football triumphs in 1950 and 1951, has died. He was one of the real leaders of that remarkable team and away from the football field his career encompassed a lifetime of public service, as well as decades as a popular sports columnist and the obtaining of a doctorate in law. More on Eamon and his life and times can be seen in this article in the Mayo News. Eamon died on Sunday morning in Dublin, aged 82. May he rest in peace.
