John Moloney receiving his trophy after Under Achievers win 

It is with great sadness that we bring news of the sudden death of John Moloney, Knockgraffon Coursing Club.
John will be fondly remembered by everyone who came in contact with him on a coursing field, at a greyhound track or at the ICC Munster Provincial meetings and AGMs which he loved to attend with his great friend Jimmy Kelly.

John was Chairman of Knockgraffon Coursing Club for over 45 years which must make him possibly the longest serving Club Chairman in the country.
He gave tremendous service to his Club and it was therefore very fitting that he should win this year’s Inter Club Champion Working Members Stake at the Irish Cup meeting with his greyhound Under Achiever.

Our sympathy to his wife Mairead, daughter Irene, sons Don, PJ, Alan and Paul (National Hunt Jockey). Also to the extended Moloney Family and to the members of Knockgraffon Coursing Club who have lost their ‘Captain’.

Reposing at his home in Lagganstown, New Inn on Friday 18th May from 4pm to 8pm.
Removal to New Inn Church on Saturday afternoon for Funeral Mass at 3pm.
Burial immediately afterwards in the adjoining cemetery.
House Private on Saturday.

May he Rest In Peace.
