Kathleen and Michael Lynch, described as family steeped in club and community by local club

Kathleen Lynch, 80 years old and Michael Lynch, 53 years old were named by locals as the parents of a son and mother who perished early Sunday in Co Cavan.

They were described by their local GAA as being “deeply involved in both our club’s and our communities”. However, they are believed to have perished when the emergency services responded just after 2am on the morning of Sunday.

Garda forensics teams examined the scene of the fire at the mother’s and sons’ home in Lackenmore. This rural area lies between Ballyjamesdufftown and New Inn. This fire may have started accidently

Fire service arrived and put out the fire. Ms Lynch, and her child were both pronounced deceased at the scene. The bodies were brought to Cavan General Hospital Mortuary for a postmortem.

Castlerahan GAA’s club described it as “awful” in an ode to the tragedy.

Kathleen and her family are deeply involved in our club. Four of Kathleen’s grandsons were part of the winning team for the Intermediate Championship last year, and one granddaughter played for the Ladies team. Jamie O’Reilly, her grandson, is a member of our u17 championship team.

Her soup, after the annual christmas swim in Lacken lakes is famous…We pass our sympathy to…all the extended family,” the article continued. A minute of silence was observed during all Sunday games across the county.
