Margaret (Peggy) Delany – R.I.P.

It was with great sadness that the committee and members of Athy Tennis Club heard of the death of Peggy Delany on March 20th, 2015.  Peggy has been a long standing Committee Member at Athy Tennis Club since the earlier days of the club and had a very active involvement in the development and growth of the club over the years.  Peggy worked tirelessly and efficiently as the Club PRO for many years,  always ensuring excellent publicity for the club.  Peggy also had a great involvement in junior tennis at the club and she served as Club President in 1997.  The Delany family generously sponsored the annual Delany Cup Day at the club for 25 years.  Peggy put a huge amount  of work into the organisation of this event every year and it continues to be the biggest and most popular tennis event of the club calendar.  Peggy was dedicated and committed to our club and her passing leaves a great void, she is greatly missed by us all.

Peggy was pre-deceased by her husband Tommy and her daughter Florence.  We extend our sincere sympathy to her daughter, Annemaria, her sons-in-law, Gerry and Frank, and her grandchildren, Emma, David, Katie and Robert.

May Peggy Rest In Peace.
