The tragic passing of a young special talent from Graignamanagh, Fran Doyle RIP, occurred on the 15th August 1993.
This Sunday, the 20th August next, Fran’s family and friends will remember him fondly in a repeat of the 1992 County Final at Dr Tierney Park at 4pm. All welcome!
The County Final on the 11th October 1992 between James Stephens and Graignamanagh/Blacks & Whites ended in a draw. James Stephens were victorious in the replay the following week but Fran was named the Iarnrod Eireann Man of the Match for his superb performance. See extract below from the Kilkenny Yearbook on the 1992 final.
