Eunan MacIntyre Obituary Death – Eunan MacIntyre Rest in Peace – May your soul rest in peace. Ar dheis Dé go raibh an anam
When I woke up this morning, it was with a heavy heart that I learnt that a wonderful friend who had been with us since we were children and a classmate who had been with us all the way through our schooling in Barrack Street and St. Colman’s has gone on to his eternal reward.
Despite having lived on the other side of the water for the previous forty years, Eunan MacIntyre was a proud Strabane native. He was also a devoted supporter of the Sigersons and had played for the club in the past. He showed his support for each and every event that the club put on, and only the week before, he and Jordan Foley split the jackpot from Sigerson’s Last Man Standing. When the Sigersons club was originally established in 1976, he was a member of the Sigersons young team.
He continued to play for the Sigersons club all the way up to the senior level and was an adequate goalie. While his family connection with the GAA in Strabane dates back to the 1940s, when his uncles James Mac Intyre and on his mother’s side Tommy Barron both helped the Lámh Dhearg team win the Tyrone Senior Football Championship title, his brother Sean has been a member of the club for a long time and is currently a referee.
Dermot MacIntyre, another uncle, participated with Strabane and won a medal at the Tyrone Minor Championship in 1948.The Kelly, McCallion, and Cullen clans are intertwined with the Sigersons club, which means that Eunan’s niece, Liana MacIntyre, plays for the Sigersons Senior Ladies squad. The complete family link can be found throughout the club.Eunan had a wonderful personality, and he was a proud Strabane man to the core of his being.
In addition, he was a strong advocate for Tyrone. His wife, children, grandchildren, siblings and sisters, and the entire MacIntyre and Barron families have lost a kind person who helped so many people throughout his lifetime. On behalf of all the Gaels of Strabane, I wish to send our profound sympathies to his wife, children, grandchildren, brothers and sisters, and the entire MacIntyre and Barron families. He will be dearly missed.
