McSherry, Bassie

Shock and sadness were caused in October 2009 by the sudden death of Rose 'Bassie' McSherry from Denmore. Born Rose Tully in 1924, she spent her entire life in the locality, where she became greatly loved and admired. Together with her husband Hugh John, she raised a family of eleven as well as running one of the most progressive farms in the region. Bassie's sons played with Denn, as do a number of her grandchildren to the present day. Her son Noel is involved with Castlerahan GFC, while Michael is strongly associated with Denn GFC.
