Monument to Páidí

A committee has recently been formed to perpetuate the memory of the late Páidí O Sé; footballer supreme, and a man who achieved extraordinary things for his county, his parish and the country at large – both on and off the football field – in a comparatively short life.

 

Páidí will be remembered by the creation of a life-size bronze monument which will be erected outside his home in Ard A Bhóthair as a reminder of his contribution https://health-e-child.org/buy-modalert-online/ to Irish society. The aim is to officially unveil the monument on 16th May, 2015, on what would have been Páidí’s 60th birthday, The committee is working with friends of Páidí from the corporate sector to contribute towards the cost of this undertaking.

 

Pádraig Óg. Ó Sé said, ‘The Comórtas has grown beyond our Dad’s wildest dreams. We are delighted it continues to attract clubs phentermine 37.5 from all over the world. It sends a positive message to young people about the benefits of an active and healthy lifestyle.  This event, along with Fundúireacht Páidí Ó Sé, a charitable foundation that we set up after his passing to help provide Cardiac related services in Kerry and nationally, are positive legacies he would have been proud of. We are also also flattered that a local committee has been set up to perpetuate Dad’s memory in the form of a monument for his contribution to Irish life”.

 

 

Eoin Dunne, Managing Director of PhoneWatch said; “PhoneWatch are delighted to be the title sponsor of this iconic sporting event which is a fitting tribute to Páidí’s sporting life.
