PAUL BRETT – A LIFETIME OF SERVICE TO CUMANN NA MBUNSCOL

It was with great sadness that we recently learned of the passing of one of our greatest ever volunteers in former officer Paul Brett.

Paul was the Secretary of Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol for many, many years up to 1997. He served as the Equipment Officer in that time as well. His involvement in Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol goes back almost 40 years, to the start of the 1980s, when himself and Jerry McDonnell helped set up a county-wide Cumann na mBunscol organisation in Tipperary. Up until then Cumann na mBunscol in Tipperary was based solely around, and in, the big towns in the county. Paul held many roles in Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol, over many years. He served as Primary Game Officer, P.R.O, Treasurer and was also the Tipperary delegate to Munster Cumann na mBunscol. Paul was also the Honorary President of Tipperary Allianz Cumann na mBunscol, a role he took up almost 20 years ago. He has indeed given a lifetime of service to Cumann na mBunscol in Tipperary. A gentleman, Paul was a true Gael. He will be greatly missed. Sincere condolences to his family.
