Raheny Shamrock Athletic Club are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Tim Maher.
The Maher family were very prominent in the club in the 1970’s and 80’s. Most of Tim’s children wore the club vest at some stage.
John represented the Ireland junior team at the World cross country in Chepstow 1976. Michael was a regular steeplechaser for the club in the national track and field league in the 1980’s.
Michael’s wife Ruth (Tim’s daughter-in-law) was a fine javelin thrower, before they emigrated to the USA .
Tim remained a great supporter of the club and whenever one would meet him he would ask about the club.
