It is with a broken heart that Broadford Hurling Club are in deep mourning at the sad passing of one our great characters and players, Niall O’Brien. The club would like to offer their deepest condolences to Mike, Anne, Cian, Eoin, Alan and the O’Brien and Boyce families.
Niall, along with his three brothers, has given great service to Broadford Hurling club. Niall has played all grades with the club, having only lined out for a win with our adult teams as recently as last week. Niall was seen as an extremely talented prospect and we will never forget his ‘Man of the Match’ winning performance when scoring 1-11 to win the u21 B county final in 2019.
Having completed 3 years, Niall was about to enter his final year in University of Limerick doing Financial Maths. Niall’s large circle of friends will remember him as a hugely popular, larger than life character. Niall was at the centre of every gathering, whether it be sporting or socially, and his good humour and witty comments kept everybody entertained. Both Broadford and Monaleen will be a much sadder place without him. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam
