It is with deep sadness we learned of the sudden passing of David Hannon, late of Ballymore and formerly of Bray. David was a well known and highly regarded referee in Westmeath. We extend our sincere sympathy to Olivia and all his family, his colleagues in An Garda Siochana, Mullingar and our fellow gaels in Ballymore and Fr. Daltons GAA clubs.
