THE deeds and exploits of Páidí ó Sé will no doubt be fondly recalled in Hollystown Golf Club this Friday, May 23, by his many friends who will be coming from far and wide to celebrate the memory of the late, much-missed Kerry football legend.

As part of the fund-raising endeavours of Coiste Chuimhneacháin Pháidí Uí Shé, the scenic and testing North County Dublin venue will host a golf classic in Páidí’s honour, with more than 40 teams taking to the fairways on the day.

The ultimate goal of the Memorial Committee is the commissioning of a life-size bronze sculpture of Páidí to be unveiled in his beloved Ard Bhóthair on May 16th 2015.

Whatever about the golf, it is expected that Hollystown will ring loud with the laughter, chat and ball-hopping that befit the man who was such a vibrant and colourful presence in his native Kingdom for so many years ‑ and who left such an indelible stamp on the history of the GAA, both as a player and as a manager.
