Sympathies to the family of Martin Dooley Cloncannon who died recently, He played on Rosenallis teams and his son Martin Jnr won Intermediate & Junior Championships with the club. His many nephews have and still play on Rosenallis teams, In recent times Martin was a great supporter, barely missing a match. His presence will be sorely missed. Ar dheis de go raibh a ainm.
