Mickey 'Socks' Dunne RIP

The club today mourns the sad passing of Mickey 'Socks' Dunne, a legend in the history of our club.  

Mick inherited his nickname from his father, a common Village occurrence. The Dunnes are among the oldest families in the area, tracing their roots

back many generations. Mickey became one of the very best all round sportsmen ever to have come from Patrick St. Among his contemporaries

he was noted for his pace and skill but more so for his leadership qualities and utter bravery. In an era when hurling was often the preserve of

big, strong men, diminutive Mickey Dunne routinely performed heroics for the Village cause. He epitomise the spirit of the underdog, a hallmark

of Village teams of old.

In the early 1950s a group of young Village men began to win hurling and football competitions  after a drought of many years.

In his time Mickey won 3 x u14 football titles, 1 x u16 hurling county title, 1 x Junior title in the same year, (a remarkable achievement, given there was

no Intermediate grade at the time!), 1 x minor hurling, 1 x minor football. He played minor hurling with Kilkenny in 1956 and '57, winning a Leinster title

in the latter year. He played senior hurling for the club for fourteen years as a pacy and wily forward and achieved the ultimate prize of captaining the club

to the county senior title in 1969, only the third Village man to achieve that honour.

His passion for James Stephens continued, an ever present at all championship games and a great supporter of club events. 

Mickey was a very talented sportsman. He won National schoolboy boxing titles and was an outstanding basketball player. 

To his wife Catherine, son Sean, Daughter Ann, brother Dick (USA) and family CLG Sheamuis Stiopháin extends deepest sympathy
