Beglan, Brian

Brian Beglan from Killydoon, who opted to pursue a life as a cobbler, lived to the age of 88 and had a great interest in the GAA. He never played but he certainly flew the flag for the Association and was once responsible for bringing together a local squad of players from the area and neighbouring parishes who won a minor championship in the 1950s. Many of those players went on to form the backbone of the Crosserlough senior team of the 1960s. A football was amongst the gifts brought to the altar at Brian's funeral mass.
