Tributes to Margaret's no ordinary Joe pour in

JOE MAXWELL played in goal for St Margaret's in the late 1950s and '60s. He was on the team that won the St Vincent de Paul Cup in 1962. He also won several Fingal Championships.

He was a colourful character. When the opposition got a free, Joe would often rock the posts until they were swaying. Referees weren't too impressed!

He was also a fine handballer. He played for Na Fianna and Dublin, earning All-Ireland Masters titles. The juveniles of today compete for the prestigious Joe Maxwell Trophy.

Joe captained the St Margaret's Golf Society. He was never short of a joke or a story. The North County is a poorer place without him.

"He will be sadly missed by all who were fortunate enough to know him," states Margaret's man and one of Joe's forever friends, Jimmy Kennedy.

Tower's host GAA seminar

CLONDALKIN'S Round Tower's are holding a special workshop tomorrow night in their clubhouse (7.15). All members, and indeed the Clondalkin community, are invited.

The workshop is being run in conjunction with Croke Park.

It will be hosted by Kieran Leddy, the GAA's organisation and planning manager.

It will focus on coaching and games development, club structures, finance and fund-raising, facilities, communications and PR.

Tony Delaney is the chairman of Tower's, who are now 129 years old.

"We are encouraging members and people to come along that have an interest in the club and in the enhancement and promotion of Gaelic games," says Tony.
