It is with a heavy heart we write this and with the deepest sadness and profound shock that we in Éire Óg Inis learned of the death of Geraldine Nihill. Geraldine and her husband Paul are both staunch members of our club, along with their children Ruth and David. Ger was a trojan worker for the club, active in the Academy and Camogie club-ready and willing to help out in coaching, organising, fundraising and club development-a true club person a true family person. Her sudden and unexpected death following a very brief illness leaves her family bereft and her wide circle of friends numb with shock. We offer our heartfelt condolences to Paul, Ruth, David & the Barry & Nihill families.
Ger will be laid to rest in Templemaley this Thursday following funeral mass at 12pm in the Cathedral. In keeping with Covid guidelines the funeral mass will be private, the house is strictly private, thanks for your understanding at this terribly difficult time for the family. The mass can be viewed on the Ennis Parish webcam link: Ennis Parish Webcam
Condolences can be left on the RIP website here: Ger Nihill, or emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Éire Óg will form a Guard of Honour within public health guidelines following the mass and we ask all taking part to wear your club colours for Ger.

Note from our Camogie Club: We are heartbroken to have to inform you of the death of our friend and club mate, Ger Nihill. This beautiful lady was the epitome of kindness and good humour. No task was beneath her. Ger also had a wonderful sense of humour and was great fun.
She will be fondly remembered by all in the club but perhaps our u12s, u13s and 14s will have some especially happy memories of her.
We offer our sincere condolences to Paul, her husband and her children, Ruth and David, along with the extended Barry and Nihill families at this sad time.
You will be missed, Ger💔
Rest in Peace
