The club Executive committee would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of those people, clubs, Garda Siochana, T.D’s, Community groups, Dublin County Board, Dublin players past and present who attended the removal and burial of our ”Hero and Legend” Anthony “Gossy “Costello.
To the Costello/Sheridan families who showed us such strenth and courage thank you. We also want to thank you for allowing us at Naomh Fionnbarra the chance to play a big part as Gossy was laid to rest.
To the juvenile section of the club for their lining of the streets and aisles of the Church, the Camogie section for their guard of honour, to Gozzy’s team mates past and present who flanked his remains to and from the Church and at the graveside, you all did yourselves and our club proud.
To all our full members,social members and not forgetting the non club people who helpED out in the clubhouse and in the kitchen and behind the bar, your help was invaluable and greatly appreciated, to the local people and business community for their expression of sympathy and support.
This occasion though a very sad one BUT showed what a great community we have in Cabra. Mile buiochais to all. Rest in Peace ‘Big Fella’, your spirt will live on in all who wear the ‘Barrs’ jersey.
