Tragedy for the Loughnane FamilyGer Loughnane’s youngest son Conor has sadly passed awayMany of us in Clare remember the 90’s fondly for one reason and one man, that man was Ger Loughnane and that reason was his great hurling team, Ger gave us so so much, he gave us wild summers of fun, he gave many of us belief that against any odds we could succeed and above all he gave us a great sense of pride in our County.Many images will remain vivid for us from the great 90’s but one that sticks out in our heads today is sight of Ger Loughnane’s two sons Barry and Conor flying across pitches delivering water bottles and instructions to players and foe, Conor in particular stood out with his flowing locks and his cherub features but he was a demon to deliver an instruction to a player.Today Conor’s many many friends have been paying wonderful tributes for him on social media and other outlets, there is clearly a huge sense of loss and shock at his passing.Sadly life has been challenging for Conor in recent years, Conor was loved, Conor will be missed and to all that knew and loved him we offer our deepest sympathies at this terrible terrible timeGer and family the people of Clare stand with you at this timeRest in Peace Conor, always loved and always missedTo everyone please Remember its good to talk.
