Bereavements: 
Inis Caoin Grattan’s GAA would like to offer our sincere sympathy and condolences to former Grattan player and administrator and current Honorary President John Boyle on the death of his beloved wife Madge. The very large local turnout at Madge’s funeral was testament to the high regard that both Madge and John were held in by the people of Inniskeen and particularly by the membership of the Grattan’s.
