Rhode GAA
John “Beezy” GlennonIt's with the heaviest of hearts we learn today of the passing of one of our clubs greatest Gaels - John “Beezy” Glennon. A characteristic of a committed person is their ability to make commitments and stick to them. Words such as maybe, or can’t, are absent from their vocabulary. This can certainly be said about our dear friend John Glennon with regard to his dedication and commitment to Rhode and Offaly GAA. In his 64th year John Glennon has given most of his life (41 years) to the cause of Rhode GAA Club, as a player and administrator.John has served this club and county in many administrative roles ranging from: 12 years as Club secretary, 35 years as club P.R.O., 6 years as assistant PRO, team selector, team secretary, County board delegate, Lotto administrator as well as taking an active role on numerous committees within Offaly GAA. John was heavily immersed in our clubs fundraising activities. As a player, John will be fondly remembered as a wing back on the U21 championship winning side of 1975 and he was a panel member as our seniors took home the Dowling cup in the same year. Most importantly, John Glennon will be remembered as a man of integrity, who was a helpful as he was knowledgeable (about most things, not just GAA) and put simply, he was a gentleman. John has battled gallantly with ill health for the past number of years although he never complained or growled about his lot. Every challenge was met head on. The easiest thing for him would have been to take a break from club activities and say “I have my time served”. However, as was typical of Beezy, his commitment and drive never abated and he ensured that whenever his health allowed he was central to activities in our club. Only a few months ago he was helping out at the weekly club lotto draw. John passed away earlier today in Tullamore Hospital in the company of his family. Their loss will be felt and mourned by so many from Rhode and beyond.Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam ... See MoreSee Less
