GAA followers in Kilkenny and all over Ireland are today mourning the passing of Paddy Buggy former President of the GAA and former Kilkenny All Ireland Senior Medal winning hurler. Born and reared in Slieverue Paddy gave a lifetime of service to the GAA. He was a member of the Slieverue team that won the Kilkenny Junior Championship in 1950 and the Senior Championship in 1954. He came on to the Kilkenny panel in 1950 and captained the Kilkenny side which lost to Wexford in the 1955 Leinster Final. His proudest day on the hurling fields came in 1957 as he, together with his club-mates Micky Walsh and Dick Rockett, was a member of the Kilkenny team that defeated Waterford in that year’s All Ireland. He was also on the 1959 side that lost out in the All Ireland Final to their great rivals at that time, Waterford. Paddy retired from inter-county hurling in 1960.
