Desperately sorry to hear about Paddy - poor fella. Awful news. Met him once - in Croke Park - and found him to be a gentleman.

He was a regular here when I joined in the Summer of 2002, so he will leave a major hole here in our own on line community.

However that is of course nothing compared to how his loss will be felt elsewhere.

My deepest sympathies to the Savage family, to Paddy's friends and to Wobbler and everyone else at Ballyholland.

May Paddy Rest In Peace.

Earliest memory of him was as a first year watching him play for the abbey rannafast team  against Maghera( I think)in Beragh circa 81/82
I remember the glasses and the head band.
Paddy was a decent player in his time .
Condolences to the Ballyholland Gaels.

5 Sams used to love going to Corca Dhuibhne in the Kerry Gaeltacht. He reminded me of  s poem by Sean Ó Riordain.

Fill arís

"Téir faobhar na faille siar tráthnóna gréine go Corca
                Dhuibhne,
Is chífir thiar ag bun na spéire ag ráthaíocht ann
An Uimhir Dhé, is an Modh Foshuiteach,
Is an tuiseal gairmeach ar bhéalaibh daoine:
      Sin é do dhoras,
      Dún Chaoin fé sholas an tráthnóna,
      Buail is osclófar
      D’intinn féin is do chló ceart."

On a sunlit evening take the cliff road out to Corca
               Dhuibhne,
and out on the horizon you will see shoaling there
the Dual Number, and the Subjunctive Mood,
and the vocative case on people’s mouths:
     that is your door,
     Dun Chaoin in the evening light,
     knock and there will be opened
     your own mind and your right shape

Paddy was a great man, knew him 20 odd years. Always called in for a pint or two when in NYC even when he had the missus over. Great with a the board messages, always injecting sound logic into the mix  Lovely man and a huge Ballyholland and Down stalwart. Did a lot of work in the local business community. Could not have met a better guy. Condolences to his wife and friends.

I'll be honest, it had crossed my mind that someone of the standing of 5 Sams should have had his own thread in as prominent a place as possible. Would it be possible to do that and move the messages of condolence?
Title: 5 Sams - RIP
Post by: Gaaboardmod3 on December 04, 2017, 02:13:52 PM
Rufus mentioned on the Death Notices Thread, that we should ideally have our own thread for 5 Sams, who was obviously one of our longest standing posters. It's a terrible tragedy for his family, and a loss to all of us in the GAABoard community. Many of us have never met 5 Sams, but he always was one of the best posters on this board, and by all accounts a lovely man in real life, according to the people who did know him. A proud Down man, and a lover of his football.

I'll leave this thread here so people can post their thoughts, and I will update it with funeral arrangements in case anyone is up around the Newry/Ballyholland area and wants to attend. I believe the arrangements are not finalised yet.

When I moved back from China to Ireland and my wife and daughter were still there, awaiting visas , passports etc, there was a problem with my daughter's passport application and I needed a new form quickly but couldn't get one in the Republic as it's a form for non-Irish residents. I stuck a thread on here asking for help from the northern posters and Paddy/5 Sams was the first to reply. Told me to to pm my address and he posted the form the next morning. A small but very kind and very important favor that I'll always remember. I never met the man but he seemed a real gent. I'd been thinking lately that I must pm him again to wish him a Happy xmas and tell him how well my daughter is doing in Ireland. Rest in peace Paddy.

Didn’t know him personally but came across as an insightful, measured and rational individual. Attributes found in ever decreasing quantities on the board and in society in general. A loss to all of us here and no doubt a greater loss to his circle of family and friends.

As an aside it’s great to see so many boards stalwarts, many of whom I haven’t noticed posting in a while, comment on the thread. It has that same strange effect as when you attend a funeral or wake and see faces that you’d long since forgotten.

Very sad about Paddy.  Only 53, he was a "grade A" gent.  He loved the GAA, the Irish language, sport, music and Ballyholland Harps.  Condolences to the many on the board here who knew him, his family, friends and work colleagues in InterTradeIreland.

Let's hope there is an afterlife in which P. O'Sé is serving him pints and having the craic as Gaeilge.

Rest easy Paddy. Obviously a man of huge stature in his community who will be badly missed. Only 53, far too young. May God be gentle on his soul.

Agreed.  Seems he used to give Dingle's Tommy Griffin the salutation "only 5".
