Emerald Park, the home of St Catherine's FC and, inset, the late Pat Rowan
St Catherine’s FC have extended their sympathies to the family of the late Pat Rowan, Killybegs.
A great servant to the Killybegs club, Pat fulfilled a number of duties and was secretary in the 1970s.
“It is with great sadness to hear of the passing of Pat Rowan, Marine Drive, Killybegs,” reads a statement from St Catherine’s FC. “Pat was a great St Catherines man and enjoyed everything that happened around Emerald Park from club development to all our team successes from under age up to senior levels.
“Pat, along with his brother Donal, and two close friends Michael Boyle and Joey Murrin (RIP), would be seen sitting in their regular seats in our main stand shouting on The Saints.
“He was secretary of the club in the 70’s and took great pride in his role. During his time in this role the club won the double, winning the Donegal League and IAWS Cup.
“We would like to extend our sympathy to his sons Dessie and Denis, daughters Patricia, Terry and Glenda and all his extended family members. May he rest in peace.”
Pat’s remains are reposing at his residence - 116 Marine Drive, Killybegs - from 12 noon to 10pm on Friday and Saturday. Removal on Sunday morning at 10:30am to St Mary of the Visitation Church, Killybegs, for 11am funeral mass. Burial afterwards in the local cemetery. Mass will be streamed live on www.mcnmedia.tv.
House private on the morning of the funeral please. Family flowers only, donations in lieu, if desired, to the Oncology ward at Sligo University Hospital care of any family member or McBrearty Funeral Directors.
