Maurice enjoys homely celebration on his 80th

Knocknagoshel man Maurice Long had a lovely family celebration on Friday at Quane’s in Blennerville to mark his 80th birthday and to welcome him home from Birmingham.

Maurice is a true Kerry man and to say he is an avid and staunch GAA supporter is really understating his dedication to the game.

Son of the late Nancy and Denis Long, Maurice grew up in Knockalougha, Knocknagoshel with his twelve siblings – his sister Kathleen, married to George Poff in Lohercannon, and sister, Brenda Conway who was the Meetings Administrator with Kerry County Council for many years, are both well known in Tralee.

Daughter of Tracey (Foley) and John Hurley, Janna has two sisters, Carol and Clodagh, and two brothers, Cormac and Dominic.

Shane is the son of Sean and Ellen Lynch and he has two brothers, Cormac and Dara, and a sister, Emer.
