Dave Donoghue Obituary, Death – Dave Donoghue, who lived on Fairyhouse Road in Ratoath, passed away, and it is with deep regret that we must inform you of this news. David died away in a serene and tranquil manner on Thursday, February 16th in the afternoon. His passing occurred on that day. David has been an active member of the club for his whole life, beginning when he was a young player. This involvement has continued into his adult life. Dave was completely dedicated to his passion for GAA.
Throughout the course of his life, he spent a major portion of his time and energy to the Ratoath GAA Club, which was an organization that offered him a great deal of joy. He passed away in 2010. During the course of his life, he served as a manager, mentor, administrator, committee member, trustee, and delegate for the Company Board. In addition, he was a member of the Company Board. David was the most well-known and highly respected spokesman of Ratoath GAA in the county of Meath, which is where the club’s headquarters are located. David was very involved in all of the club’s efforts.
In addition to this, he was a significant contributor to the formation of the East Meath Leagues, organizations that were operational for a certain amount of time. When Ratoath hosted the Keegan Cup for the first time in 2019, he was so proud of the accomplishment, and he was also proud of the many players on the team who had worked their way up through the younger age groups. Ratoath was also proud of the many players on the team who had worked their way up through the younger age groups.
Dave was a huge supporter of the Meath GAA team throughout his life, but he never stopped thinking of Mayo as his GAA home. When he was just seven years old, his family uprooted and moved away from Mayo. Unfortunately for him, his wish did not come true, and he did not have the chance to see the Sam Maguire make its way west to Mayo. He was very disappointed by this turn of events. A man who was both a respected Ratoath and an authentic Gael has been taken from us.
