Fitting Tribute to John Corcoran from UCC GAA Club
Following the sudden death of Mr. John Corcoran, UCC GAA paid this tribute:
UCC GAA Club would like to acknowledge the huge contribution that the late John Corcoran made to Gaelic Games in the University over the past number of years.
John passed away last Tuesday, January 19th and the students and management have lost a man who made a massive contribution towards the wellbeing of those that he came in contact with and there is huge sadness now that he is no longer with us.
Along with Billy Morgan, John Corcoran oversaw a marvellous period in Sigerson Cup football in UCC with College reaching five finals, winning two, indeed up to the time of his death he was preparing for another Sigerson campaign.
He was a great friend, loyal with a generous spirit; we were the lucky ones because we got to know him, the unlucky ones were those who did not.
Since October the Gaelic Football Club has lost Billy O’Keeffe, Eric Philpott and now John Corcoran, three men who gave freely of their time, three men who will be sorely missed.
