"Thanks a million folks and safe home”. If ever you left the Stables, the Commercial or the Kings Inn on any night over the years - that was the farewell greeting you got from the proprietor Gerry King when he let you out at closing time.
I could not say that you didn’t get a farewell or a thank you from any other establishment but I can say you always got it from Gerry. It’s a simple thing but one which said thank you for your custom which went a long way. Something you always remember.
Gerry passed away last week following an illness he fought bravely. Many club members would have spent many great times in his establishment from the running around years to the settled years and beyond. Gerry was a permanent fixture over that time. So Gerry all we can say to you now is thanks a million to you for your service to us and we know that you are now home safely.
The Executive Committee and Members wish to extend to his wife Carmel, his son’s and club members John and Gerard, son Charles and daughter Mary all our sincere sympathy for their loss. We also extend our sympathy to his brothers Raymond and Cyril, his sister Colette and the wide family circle at this time. Ar dheis de go raibh a anam dilis.
