    Thumbs up Passing of a true Gufc Legend.

    Most of the younger generation wouldnt even know his name but I can honestly say I have never met a nicer Gentleman in my whole life than Jimmy Kelly.A very sad day for Galway United his wit and good humor was the first thing you met when you stepped into Terryland in the 80's and early 90's god be with you Jimmy.

    I remember Jimmy selling Lotto tickets in the 1990's. He'd cycle around the city collecting and delivering tickets regardless of the weather and he must have been in his late 60s at the time. His son and grandson are regulars in Terryland. May Jimmy rest in peace.

    Some great people have served the club in a voluntary capacity over the past thirty years.

    RIP.

    I remember Jimmy from my early days at Terryland, a very nice man, always said hello. God bless him
    "Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins."
    "Homer Simpson, smiling politely."
