Maria Johnson Obituary, Death – With the deepest regret, we must share the news that Maria Kealy, the youngest member of the Kealy family, has passed away. For the past four decades, the Kealy family has been instrumental in laying the groundwork for our organization. Maria, a young woman who passed away much too soon, is survived by her husband and partner Michael Johnson, her heartbroken parents Ead and Patsy, and her siblings Kevin, Pat, Dermot, Aiden, Brendan, Denis, and Orla. Fiona is also one of Maria’s surviving siblings.

Maria was a talented football player who frequently played for Meath and Royal Gaels. She was a member of both teams. In 2007, she led the Royals to an All-Ireland Under 16 championship, two Leinster minor championships, and an intermediate club championship. In addition, she won all three of those titles individually. She coached and managed women’s football and camogie teams at both the club and county levels. She also worked briefly as a Coaching and Games Officer for the Meath GAA.

Maria has just recently opened her own company in Kilmessan, and she has quickly won over customers from the surrounding sporting community and beyond with her recognizable smile, an upbeat demeanor, extensive knowledge of fitness, and polished demeanor. She was an exceptionally gifted young lady who also had a natural proclivity toward acts of generosity and kindness.

Families Kealy and Johnson have both made significant contributions to the club since its inception. Adam is a member of our intermediate championship team, which is managed by Richie, Michael’s brother. Richie also played for Dunshaughlin, along with his brothers Tommy and Anthony. Michael, Maria’s husband, played for Dunshaughlin, as did Tommy and Anthony, Michael’s brothers. Her brother, Kevin, is in charge of our Junior and Under 20 teams, and Aiden is a selector for the clubs Under 15 squad.

Our hearts go out to Michael, Ead, and Patsy, as well as the rest of the family. Our sincerest condolences. During this difficult and heartbreaking time, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. She was a person others could look up to, and you should all be proud of her. hassles, ar dheis Dé go raibh an anam cineálta.
