Rosemary, Tim, Jennifer and Miley’s extended family would like to express their gratitude to all of the Arklow Rocks community for their kindness during his illness and in the weeks since his passing.
The loss of Miley has been a devastating blow for our family as we know it has been for many of you.
As a family we were overwhelmed by the huge number that turned out to accompany Miley on his final journey to his place of rest.
We know it would be impossible to thank each individual so we would like to take this opportunity to express our deep gratitude to you all.
Miley was a proud life long member of the Arklow Rocks. We know that we don’t need to tell you all how much he enjoyed his trips to The Field, the matches and the pub for a sing song and some craic. Miley valued the many many friends that he made as part of the club. As he so often said ‘Up the Rocks’ 💚🤍💚🤍
It is with great sadness, we as a club have to make this announcement.
The passing has occurred of our two newest Rockette and Rock Star, Cadhla and Tadhg Kavanagh.
Children of Lorraine and Chris Kavanagh, brother and sister to Saoirse, Sean and Fiadh, all part of our Rocks community! There are no words to describe the hurt amongst the club and it’s community at this time.
We extend our deepest sympathy to all the Kavanagh and Kelleher families at this time.
We ask you to show your support and prayers online and respect the privacy of the family at this very difficult time!
Arklow Rocks Hurling and Camogie Club is delighted to join forces with Ballymanus GAA and several other local clubs on Saturday 1st May to help raise awareness and much needed funds for Talk to Tom. Talk to Tom is a local suicide prevention charity based in Gorey that is hoping to open a centre in Arklow later this year. We are asking everyone in the community to take part and support this fundraising event. All monies raised will help towards the service Talk To Tom provides.
Starting at 6pm, we will come together (adhering to social distancing rules), to create a 24 hour continuous cycle in socially distance pairs. A shout out to our friends at Coral Leisure Centre Arklow for the use of the bikes.
