Johnny Grimes RIP - long time Syls player and supporter

We are sad to report the death of Johnny Grimes, a long time player, member of the famous 1963 Junior Championship team and the team that brought Senior Football to Malahide in the early '70s. Johnny will be sadly missed and we extend our condolences to his family and friends. A lovely quote from Eddie Moore "From stories I heard in the past and from my experience of my own playing days with Syls I will say that off the pitch Johnny was a very quite thoughtful man. On the pitch Johnny Grimes looked after every player. No one ever bullied a Syls player while Johnny Grimes was around. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a anam."
