The passing of Christina Walsh Patron of Tourlestrane Gaa club . 

We were saddened yesterday morning when we heard the news of the passing of Christina Walsh. RIP . She was the first Lady Officer of Tourlestrane Club. Christina and Ann Surlis were elected assistant treasurers with Sean Clarke back in 1979. She has been an avid supporter of the club since the mid 70s when her son Matthew started his under age career and has continued all the way along to see her grandchildren play in the green and gold. Her late brother Tommy Walsh was captain of our first team to win the Owen B Hunt Cup In 1956. She was also involved in drama in the 70s era when the club was heavily involved in Scór and was ever present in Tourlestrane’s novelty acts, even winning an all Ireland one year alongside Tommy Marren, Michael Collins Tom Walsh And Pat Feely. 
A true supporter and eventually Patron of her beloved Tourlestrane GAA she will be remembered as a lady with an eternal smile on her face, most especially when Tourlestrane were winning. I can but say the club’s sad loss is Heaven’s gain. Ní bheidh a leithéid ann arís. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam. 
Christina is predeceased by her husband Matt and their Daughter Rita. 
The club extends sympathy to her son Matt, daughters Sheila (Deignan), Fiola (Murphy), Irene (Fitzsimons) and Paulette (Lynsky), sons-in-law Danny Kelly, Pat, Brendan, Sean and Tony, grandchildren, sister, brother, sister-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Remains reposing in the home of her daughter Irene Fitzsimons in Tullycusheen Mor, Ballina Road, Tubbercurry (post code F91 Y4X2) on this Saturday from 1 o'clock until 4 o'clock and again from 5 o'clock until 9 o'clock. Funeral to arrive in St. Attracta's Church, Tourlestrane on Sunday for Requiem Mass at 12.30 o'clock with the funeral afterwards to Rhue Cemetery
