Gorey mourns loss of Nicky Stafford

By Dan Walsh

Naomh Éanna GAA Club in Gorey is leading the tributes to its Chairman, Nicky Stafford, Clonattin, Gorey, who passed away suddenly and is inviting people to light a candle of remembrance tonight (Monday) at 9pm.


In a statement posted on social media the club said; “We have lost a pillar of our club, a man who gave his all to everything he did, and never, ever sought the limelight. We have lost a true gentleman, a man who always saw the good in people, and a committed volunteer. Nicky worked tirelessly and his heart was always in the right place. All Nicky wanted was to see the club and its members do well and he backed club members to the hilt. Nicky went above and beyond in his role as club chairman. He will be forever missed by his family, whom he adored, his devoted wife, Noreen, son, Conor, daughters, Niamh, Nicola, Louise, his extended family, his friends, his clubmates and the people of Gorey. As a club, we are heartbroken. May Nicky Rest in Peace.”

Tributes have also been posted by Gorey Rangers Soccer Club and Gorey Pipe Band and many individual tributes to a much loved member of the community who will be sadly missed. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.
