Sadness as Eamonn passes away on golf course

Pádraig Byrne

There was a lot of sadness around Bunclody recently, particularly in the golfing community, following the passing of of Eamonn Nash of 9 Ryland Wood while out playing golf at Bunclody Golf & Fishing Club.

A native of Dublin, Eamonn moved to Bunclody back in 1974 when he took a job as a Quantity Surveyor for Patsy Furlong & Sons before joining the management team there.

A familiar face around the Fairways at Bunclody Golf Club, Eamonn was out golfing with two friends when he took ill and collapsed. Emergency Services were called to the scene, but Mr Nash, aged in his late sixties, was unfortunately pronounced dead.

Eamonn is survived by his loving wife Olive and his children Eleanor, Christine and Edward, for whom his passing has come as a devastating blow. A funeral service took place on Tuesday at The Church of the Most Holy Trinity, Bunclody, which saw mourners travel from all over the country to pay their final respects. Afterwards he was laid to rest in Calvary Cemetery.

Eamonn is survived by his loving wife, his three children, his brother Tony, sisters Maureen and Louie, grandchildren Rebecca, Aoife, Eoin, Oisín, Robbie & Áine, his son-in-law Gerry and partners John and Sarah, relatives, neighbours and friends. May he rest in peace.
