Colm Mullarkey Death, Obituary –On behalf of the entire Sligo GAA community, we would like to extend our deepest condolences to Colm Mullarkey’s family and friends on the tragic loss of their loved one. Colm was an inspiration to countless generations of young people in the county of Sligo, particularly in South Sligo, and functioned as both a leader and a role model throughout his time there.
He was the force behind vocational school football for a number of years, and he will be remembered in the annals of Sligo GAA history as the manager of our team that won the Connacht minor football championship in 1968. He will also be remembered as the driving force behind vocational school football.
After that, it took Sligo another 53 years to win again, and one of the final calls that the 2021 Minor team manager Paul Henry and his colleague Colm McGee made before they took the 2021 Sligo minors to the All Ireland semi final in August of that year was to visit Colm at his home. This was one of the final calls they made before taking the 2021 Sligo minors to the All Ireland semi final. This was one of the final calls that they made before taking the 2021 Sligo minors team to play in the All Ireland semi final.
