Ballinrobe GAA Club is saddened to announce the sudden death of Aidan Golden, a distinguished wearer of the club’s maroon and yellow jersey.
He played with Ballinrobe at all levels, including as a member of their first 15 in the 2000 Mayo Intermediate Football and U21 Championship final wins over Ballaghaderreen and Kilmaine respectively, and the 2004 Mayo Senior League Final victory over Knockmore.
Aidan, Lakelawns, Ballinrobe, who celebrated his 40th birthday just a few weeks ago, died suddenly after taking ill yesterday during a family holiday in Portugal.
His death has cast a pall of gloom over Ballinrobe and the entire south Mayo region where Aidan was an intensely popular figure.
The Ballinrobe GAA Registration Night, scheduled for tomorrow night, has been postponed as a mark of respect.
