The club would like to offer their condolences to the family of Bill Kiely who passed away Wednesday morning. Billy’s passing is sadly regretted by all the members of the Cú Chulainns Club, both hurling and football.

Billy was one of GAA’s true gentlemen, a great friend and staunch member of the Cú Chulainns club, whom he served for over 50 years as a player, mentor, secretary and chairman. May he rest in peace.

As a mark of respect for Billys service to the Cú Chulainns and London GAA the hurling fixture has been called off this weekend.

The Cú Chulainns Club offer it’s deepest sympathy to John, Kieran and Rebecca on their loss of a special father.
