Rose Meakins - Obituary

The St Francis Credit Union Clare Community Games were deeply saddened at the sudden and untimely passing of its Honorary Patron Rose Meakins on 6th April 2020.

Rose has been involved in Community Games for over forty years. She was involved in Sixmilebridge/Kilmurry and in County committees. She held a number of offices She was county Treasurer since 1988 until she was made Honorary Patron a few years ago but she still was still very active on the finance committee. She was very involved in activities such as swimming and attended most events for many years. For many years she was a manager of the Clare children at the National Finals. Rose was a much loved member of Community Games.

Rose had a very welcoming smile, she made friends easily and she will be very sadly missed by all who had the pleasure to know her.

We wish to extend our deepest sympathies to Graham, Stuart, Vincent and all of Rose's family and friends at this very sad time.
