Paddy Verdon R.I.P

Paddy VerdonIt was with great sadness that were learned of the death of former club chairman Paddy Verdon.
Paddy was a native of Soloheadbeg in Co Tipperary.
On the hurling front he won a Tipperary junior crown in 1959 and won a West Tipperary senior hurling title with St Patricks (Solohead & Lattin-Cullen).
He served as secretary of Solohead for 20 years before moving to Limerick.
From 1968-1973 he served on the inter-county referees panel and officiated at National League and at Munster championship level at senior, U-21, minor and club football level and minor hurling.
He was also a Tipperary selector in minor football and hurling, U-21 hurling and intermediate hurling, with who he won an All Ireland in 1972. and following many years in the green and red of his native club he moved to Limerick.
He took up employment in Ferenka and having moved into Caherdavin it was inevitable that his love for the GAA would draw him to NA Piarsaigh.
Having managed various teams in the club Paddy took up the reins of Chairman in 1993, a post he held for 7 years.
He was also very active in the City Board and held all posts including Chairman, and was Vice Chairman and Treasurer up until his untimely death.
Am absolute gas man who had a word for everyone.
He has left a big void in the club and will be a big big loss to Na Piarsaigh GAA Club

    Paddy was a true “gentle man” in the best sense. I got to know Paddy through my late mother, who always spoke of him with the highest regard. Am so sad to hear of his passing. Na Piarsaigh will miss him dearly. Rest In Peace Paddy.
