The late Joe Mooney PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 21 May 2013 23:09

The club would like to offer it's condolences to the family of Joe Mooney who died recently in Australia.
Joe was one of the club's top coaches in the 1980s and early 1990s. Joe started his coaching
career with Trinity AC in Donaghmede in the in the 1970s. He then moved to Donore Harriers. He soon
saw the grass was not greener in Islandbridge and then threw his lot in with the local Shamrocks.

During 10 great years with the club Joe had plenty of success. He coached the the club's Junior Cross Country 
team to the National title in 1987. The scoring team that day was David Jones, Pat Maher, Damien Bates
and Brian Peppard. Dave ran for Ireland in that years World Junior Cross Country in Poland. While the other
3 won athletic schlorships to American Universities.

Pauline Durren another of his proteges finished 2nd in the 1986 National Junior Cross Country beating a one
Sonia O'Sullivan in the process.Pauline too went to America on an athletic schlorship. Joe's 3 children Joe Jnr, Anne
and Susan all ran with distinction for the club. 

Among others who were coached by Joe and have fond memories of him are Declan and Edel Peppard,
Eoin Brady, Stephen Nolan, Niall Byrne, Edel Hanley, Dorothy O'Neill and Nora Maher. In the late 1990s
following his retirement from Dublin Corporation Joe followed his family out to Australia where he has lived 
since.To his wife Eileen and family we say thanks for all he gave to Raheny Shamrock's.
