Brady, Frank

The sudden death of Frank Brady in his adopted Coventry following a few days' illness caused shock and sorrow in his native Ballinagh. Frank had emigrated to Coventry as a young man and set up a successful business there. He became deeply involved in the GAA in England and was president of the Roger Casements club as well as a true driving force behind all their successes and activities from fundraising to the securing of their pitch and facilities. He rarely missed a club meeting and led by example when it came to showing generosity towards Roger Casements GFC. Frank was chairman of the ground development committee at Pairc na hEireann and was a highly-respected GAA figure, both in Ireland and England. Ballinagh GFC provided a guard of honour at Frank's removal to St Felim's Church, where GAA president Liam O'Neill and Ulster Council president Aogan Farrell were amongst those in attendance.
