It was with great sadness that we learnt of the loss of our esteemed senior footballer and club member Peter Hughes, who died in tragic circumstances yesterday.
Dromintee GAC wish to convey their sympathies to his parents Paul and Sharon, his siblings Kevin, Ryan and Jennifer and the wider family circle.
Peter was an invaluable member of our football club and wore the Dromintee jersey with great pride and accomplishment, from underage level right through to senior level. Peter’s contribution to club life follows a long tradition of the Hughes’ family’s involvement in Dromintee GAC . Our existing playing fields and new all weather training facility originally formed part of Peter’s grandfathers farm.
Peter was a popular young man and a great ambassador within Dromintee and the wider community. He was head boy at St Pauls Secondary School, Bessbrook where he was involved in voluntary work, including an overseas project in Kenya. More recently he was studying Chemistry at Queens University, Belfast where he continued to develop his love of the gaelic game.
The passing of Peter’s young life has left a great void and sadness for his family, friends, team mates, Dromintee GAC and the entire community. Today we wish to also remember and pass on our condolences to the families of the two other young men who lost their lives alongside Peter.
