GAA Press Release
23 January 2012
Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Criostóir Ó Cuana last night expressed his condolences on behalf of the Association to the parents and family of Ciarán Carr, Round Tower Clondalkin dual player, who passed away on Friday night last during a training session with the club’s senior footballers.
The 20 year old student, who had represented his county at underage development squad level, was the club’s U21 football vice captain.
He said: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the Carr family and the Round Tower GAA Club at this unimaginably difficult time.
“Ciarán achieved a lot in his short life and cherished his involvement with the GAA through his local club and of course his county. He represented his family and his club with distinction.
“I extend my sympathies and those of the Association to Ciarán’s parents. Ciaran’s father, Philip, has served the Association in a variety of different roles including that of referee.”
