Watty Graham’s GAC Glen were this morning greeted with the sad news that our club trustee Frankie Kearney has passed on to his eternal reward. Frankie dedicated his entire life to Watty Graham’s, firstly as a player, then as a manager and in later years as a hard working club official and trustee. As well as his contribution to football, Frankie was also extremely proud of his part in winning an All-Ireland Scór Quiz title for Glen. Frankie had a distinguished management career with Derry GAA and was at the helm when Derry won back to back Ulster titles in 1975 and 1976, unfortunately an achievement that Derry have yet to repeat. He was also involved under Brian Mullins tenure in 1998. Frankie will also be fondly remembered for designing the ‘Oak Leaf’ crest, which is now adorned across thousands of Derry GAA garments throughout Derry, Ireland and further afield – a wonderful legacy! To his wife Mena, his children Aidan, Sinead, Jarlath and Olcan, his brother Dessie, his sisters Mona and Carmel and his wider family circle we offer our condolences at this sad time. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam. Glen pitch will be a different place without Frankie. He was never far away from the front of the changing rooms and was always on hand with his magic rubs when any hamstrings gave trouble. His often funny Watty Warble emails always ended with his mantra ‘Onwards and Upwards’ and that’s how Watty Graham’s intend to proceed.
