Death Of Miss Chrissy Power PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 29 October 2014 13:50

The death has occurred of Mrs Chrissy Power mother of the famous Power family. Chrissy and her late husband  late Maurice had a family of ten children, six of whom ran for the club. The Power family made a great contribution to the club during the seventies, eighties and nineties.

Maurice(Snr) was a former club secretary and was a great Guru to all us young fellows in the 70s. Jim, Con, Breda, Liz, Maurice(Jnr) and the late Noel all competed with distinction for the club. Jim would be regarded  as the man who started the great Marathon tradition in the club. He won the old County Dublin Marathon title in 1972 and ’73 and was 2nd in 1974 and ’75. Con had a great range of times between 1,500m and 10,000m and was also 2.24 marathoner in a career cut short by ill health. Maurice(Jnr) was fine underage athlete and was an exciting young senior athlete when it was curtailed by a back injury. Noel was a great middle distance runner he finished 4th in the National Senior 1,500m 1989. He died suddenly in 2003. The two girls Breda and Liz were very promising juveniles.

The Power family have donated 2 perpetual cups to the club in memory of Maurice(Snr) and Noel. The 1st Lady in the AXA Raheny  5 wins the Maurice Power Cup. While the Noel Power Cup goes to the 1st Junior girl in the Goal Mile on Christmas Day.

The club would like to offer it commiserations to the Power family on the death of their mother. The funeral mass takes places on Thursday morning 30th October  at 10am in St. John the Evangelist Church, Kilbarrack.
