RIP Paddy White
Paddy White R.I.P.
It is with deep regret what we inform you of the sad passing of Paddy White.
Paddy was a valued member of Cahir Park Golf Club. He encouraged so many people young and old alike to play the game of golf. Not a morning went by that he wasn’t in the driving range helping somebody play in his own words “A very easy game”, although he would say that with a grin on his face.
Paddy lived for the club and he will be fondly remembered.
On behalf of everyone at Cahir Park Golf Club, we would like to pass on our deepest sympathies to his wife Mary and family.
