It was with deep sadness that the Ennis & Clarecastle Coursing Club heard on Sunday morning of the passing of Mary Gallery , Rockmount, Ballybeg, Ennis wife of the late George Gallery M.R.C.V.S and synonymous with the famed Cillowen prefix.
Mary and her family enjoyed tremendous success on the coursing fields of Ireland with Champions Stake winners Killone Oak ( 1987), Cillowen Glory ( 1995) along with numerous Trial Stake winners and of course in 2002 breeding both Derby finalists Murtys Gang and their own Cillowen Harbour. Mary was a lifelong and valued member of the club and we will be forever grateful for her continued sponsorship of the club’s Oaks Trial Stake. She will be sadly missed by all her friends in the coursing world. Our sincere condolences to her sons David and George, daughters Bernadette, Patricia and Fiona, daughter-in-law, son-in-law, grandchildren, great grandchildren and extended family. Funeral Mass on Monday at 2:30 pm in the Ennis Cathedral with Burial after in Drumcliffe Cemetery.
Johnny Moroney (Secretary Ennis & Clarecastle CC)

May Mary Rest In Peace
