Popular Gerry was a great supporter of the Rock and Gers


Gerard (Gerry) Tuite, Marlbog Road, Haggardstown, Dundalk, died suddenly at home on 5 May, 2019.

A native of Blackrock, he was one of four children born to Laurence and Moya (nee Murphy).

A keen follower of sport, Gerry enjoyed many a day fishing and shooting. He was also an avid supporter of both local football clubs, Rock Celtic and the Geraldines. He served on the committee of the Geraldines following his retirement from ECCO in the 90s.
