On Sunday morning as the final preparations were being put in place for the St Canices Credit Union Senior County Final the sad news that Billy O'Dwyer has passed broke around the ground. Billy formerly of the Foulkstown Club in Kilkenny and more recently of the Faughs club in Dublin was the proud holder of two All-Ireland Senior medals with Kilkenny (1957/63) and three Leinster medals (1957/58 & 63).
All associated with Kilkenny GAA would like to extend our sympathies to Billy's wife Anne and his family. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a ainm.
