Tragic Death of Shane Hourigan

Tragic Death of Shane Hourigan

 It is with deep regret that I learned of the tragic death of Shane Hourigan as a result of a road traffic accident on Monday.

I have known Shane since he was a child and value my friendship with him and his extended family.

Shane was a highly regarded G.A.A. Referee and we had expected that he would be in charge of an All Ireland Senior Hurling Final within a few years.

I convey my sympathy to his family and friends.
