Fr. Willie Cleary

Sadly, the death has been announced of Fr. Willie Cleary , Mornington, Co Meath.  He was a former Parish Priest of both Tullamore, Co Offaly and Mornington, Co Meath.  Fr. Willie was a well known priest in Mullingar during the late 50’s and early 60’s when the Tennis club was no longer operating.  Along with Michael Creighton, Fr. Willie was instrumental in re-invigorating the Club and putting the Club on the path to where we are today.  He worked tirelessly to ensure the success of the Club and will be particularly remembered for his support of the Juniors.  A tennis player himself he played at the Club for some twenty years and was elected an Honorary Life  Member of the Club in recognition of his enormous contribution.

May he rest in peace.
