Sympathy is extended to the Sullivan family of Clonin Rhode and Mooretown Fore Co. Westmeath on the death of Dan after a short illness. Dan was one of life’s true gentlemen, a man of great wit and humour and a great character. He was also a man you would wish to meet be it at a match or on the street. He was a tremendous supporter of all Rhode and Offaly teams and over the years attended all games. We all have lost a great and loyal friend. All at Rhode GAA Club send their deepest sympathy to his wife Olive, brother Jim, sisters Helen and Kathleen and his extended family. Dan was laid to rest in his native Rhode on Sunday after 11.30 mass. May he Rest In Peace.
