Elphin GAA club was saddened to learn of the death of former club stalwart Micheal Mulleady RIP. Micheal was one of the last surviving members of the great Elphin team of the 1950s which won five senior county titles and contested every other final of the decade except one. He was a stylish and combative forward and also represented Roscommon. Micheal continued to play for Elphin throughout much of the 1960s and featured on the 1966 team which contested another final, losing to Clan na nGael.
In 1972 Micheal was part of the Elphin Question time team which won the All-Ireland Scòr title, alongside Paddy Farrell and Liam Staunton.
Micheal wrote a history of Elphin GAA, from its foundation in 1888 up to 1981 when the history was published. He was the “go to” point of contact for information on past players and games.
Micheal was a National Teacher by profession and taught in Boolavogue in Wexford and in Tullamore before spending much of his career as Principal of Rathcroghan N.S.
The club would like to extend its sympathies to his wife Ursula, his sons Jamie, Karl and Ultan, his daughters Nessa and Ursula and all the extended Mulleady family.
