The community of Bailieborough was much saddened by news of the death of Patrick Joseph 'PJ' Collins of Crocknahattina on Sunday January 3rd, 2010. Originally from Shercock, PJ was aged 69. He played for the Shamrocks in his younger days and was a member of the side that scooped the SFC in 1964. He remained a lifelong member of the local club and always followed their fortunes closely. Current members of the club and the local branch of Fine Gael combined to form a Guard of Honour at PJ's removal to St Anne's Chapel.
