Niall remembered by Minute’s Silence before many games:
It was a sombre Kerry Schoolboys Girls League at the weekend as the death of Niall McGillycuddy came through on Friday.

A Minutes Silence was perfectly observed at the start of many games as many of those who played with him and against him remembers a sporting life that was over way to soon.
