Much sorrow was caused by the death following a short illness of 66-year-old Aidan Brady from Lacken. Football was a firm favourite of Aidan's and he gave sterling service to his beloved Lacken. Together with his brother Oliver, he won an intermediate championship in 1967. He gave many years' service to the Celtics, and had the distinction of playing in goals for the Cavan minors in 1960. However, after a stint between the posts he spent most of his playing days as full back and Aidan was a difficult rock to get past around the Lacken square. At Aidan's removal, his coffin was flanked by a Guard of Honour comprising club members past and present and the No.3 jersey he donned with such distinction was clearly evident.
