It was with great sadness and a heavy heart that I learned of the passing of 1957 legend Kevin Beahan on Sunday morning following a short illness.

I’d met Kevin many times over the years at football games and social functions, but we had become good friends over the last 10 or 15 years through the sport of golf. While I was too young to witness Kevin’s exploits on the football pitch, his prowess and skill with St Mary’s Ardee, St Patrick’s Armagh, Sean McDermott’s (Dublin) and Louth were the stuff of legend.
