Patrick Boyle of Railway Terrace, Carrick Road, Dundalk died peacefully at his home on December 27th, 2009. He was a staunch 'Dowdaller' who played with distinction for the Dowdallshill club and also supported the club in a variety of capacities down through the years. Originally from County Armagh, Patrick won a Louth JFC medal in 1951 and lined out against the Gaels in the senior final the following year. A strong, committed defender on the field of play, Pat went on to serve on the club committee and he was a trustee of Dowdallshill at the time of his death. Surviving members of the 1951/52 team acted as pallbearers and provided a Guard of Honour at his funeral.
