Club Notes 19 September 2017

Post by Sydney » 17 Sep 2017, 19:22

Here in St Pats, any happenings in GAA & LGFA during the week were overshadowed by the heart-breaking loss of our friend & colleague Trent Latham on Wednesday 13 September.
Although Trent was primarily Mentor with our U10 Boys, he was also involved with girls squads, Mini All Ireland, Juvenile Camps & The Development Committee. He was a club man through and through; his loss is overwhelming.

We offer our sincere and heartfelt sympathies to his wife Hazel and to his adored children Sophia & Cian, to his mother Eileen and his sisters Cheryl & Sonia.

We hope that the huge sea of Green & Black at Saturday’s funeral was seen as a demonstration of the love & esteem we hold Trent in.
To watch the All Ireland Final and hear The Hill explode in applause at the 44th minute made us all so proud & honoured to have known him. #44Trent

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dilís; ní bheidh a leithead ann arís.
Here is the official Club Release on Thursday morning:
It is with our deepest sympathies to Hazel, Sophia & Cian and all the Latham family, and disconsolate grief that the club has learned of the passing of one of our dearest friends and members Trent Latham.
Trent loved many things. Trent loved life. He loved being a Dub. He loved Dublin. He loved being a North sider but loved being a North County Dubliner just as much.
He loved sport. He loved golf. He loved the 19th. Oh did he love the 19th. And didn't we all love the 19th when he was there. With us. He loved the craic. He loved fun. He loved to be in the middle of it all and he loved being loved for the craic and for the fun.
He loved the Pats. He loved the club. He loved Saturday mornings coaching and Sundays for the matches. He loved the green and black. And he loved the goss and the craic.
He loved the Dubs. He loved All Ireland finals and they won't be the same without him. He loved Sam Maguire and ribbons of blue. He loved life. He loved his job. And he loved being a perfectionist. Because that was Trent. A true blue.
Trent will always be our neighbour, our club mate, our colleague, our friend. Our greatest exponent of the spirit of St Pats in 2017 and beyond. Words will never compensate the loss being felt by the Latham family. And words won't heal the hurt we ALL feel right now.
But words can do this.
They can make a promise that the spirit of Trent Latham lives on. Lives on in every coach, every player, every golfer, every friend, every club mate, every neighbour and every human being that was lucky enough to cross paths with this man on the journey that we all make.
Because what we all love implicitly is our family. Trent loved Hazel, Trent loved Cian, Trent loved Sophia and he loved them all together just like he loved life itself.
We have lost one of our own.
We mourn his passing.
He was a Celt. A hero. And he will never be forgotten. By any of us here in St Pats GAA Club.
