The Dundalk Gaels club was plunged into grief once more on Wednesday, March 28th, 2012 when news broke of the passing of Niall 'Nobbie' Garland of 11 Cuchullain Terrace, Dundalk and late of Jenkinstown / Knockbridge. Niall played minor football and hurling with Clan na Gael and then transferred to the Gaels, where he was involved in many aspects of the club and made a huge impression on all who knew him. His work behind the scenes and dedication to the club was greatly appreciated by all its members. Nobbie was a great club volunteer who was never afraid to roll up his sleeves for the Gaels cause. He was also connected with the St Brides club and the esteem in which he was held was reflected in the fact that Na Piarsaigh and Sean O'Mahonys both observed a minute's silence before their matches following the passing of a great GAA man whose energy will be missed throughout Dundalk.
