Johnny Haughey Obituary, Death – Sincere condolences are extended to Charlie and the extended Haughey and Freeley families on the passing of Johnny, who was a cherished brother to Johnny. We hope that the gentle spirit he left behind can finally find peace. Johnny held the position of Chairman of the Board of Directors for the Roscommon Hurling Association for a cumulative total of 52 years. Johnny was the quintessential example of what it means to be a gentleman when we were all together playing hurling in Roscommon, and many of us have very fond memories of him.
He was a formidable figure in the athletic league, and his love and passion for the game were through the roof. He demonstrated a strong interest in players of all ages, representing both clubs and counties. His enthusiasm was contagious.
Because of his passing, his loved ones and the vast majority of his friends will experience profound feelings of bereavement.
One might even go so far as to say that it is unique. Ar Dheis De go Raibh Anam.
