Bernie O’Rourke RIP

 It is with deep regret that the Club has learnt of the death of Mr. Bernie (Bernard) O’Rourke on Sunday 2ndMarch 2014. He was an Honorary Life Member of GRFC ,one of our longest serving members, and held various positions in the Club including Honorary Secretary and Honorary Treasurer. We extend our deepest sympathies to his wife, Dodo (Jo) and to his extended family. Over the years Bernie travelled the length and breadth ofIreland supporting Greystones in the AIL and his presence on the sideline will be very much missed.
