Vale Danny Frawley

Everyone involved with The Old Haileyburians' Amateur Football club is saddened by the passing of Danny Frawley.

Danny through his enthusiastic and engaging personality left an indelible mark on the club. Forever positive, caring and prepared to look on the lighter side, he impacted so many lives. The women coached by him were taught so much about football and life generally, ensuring he will never be forgotten.

Danny was the first coach of the Hearts and continued in the role for the next two years. The highlight during this tenure was the 2018 Premiership. The girls made the finals in all three years and just as importantly showed continual improvement in skills and fitness. Ably supported by Terry Dillon and John Wright, they formed a solid unit that participated with enthusiasm and dedication. Danny loved being around the club and everyone spending time with him was the better for it. Thursday nights, with the banter and jocularity a particular highlight.

Everyone is shocked and shaken by this sad news. As a club it is important we talk, listen and support each other. As such, you are invited to reflect on a great life with others from the club at Hotel Brighton on Thursday from 6.30pm.
