Barry 'Jacko' Noonan
“BRAVE and full of heart,” just one of the touching tributes paid to popular Sixmilebridge man Barry Noonan. Barry, known to his friends as ‘Jacko’ was well-known throughout the parish, particularly in sporting circles where he played for Bridge United. He was a member of the soccer club from an early age and played at every level up to junior where, in recent years, he enjoyed great success with the club’s B team.
Former Manager Hughie Kelly passed away in April 2010. The former Derry City player led Clare to its first ever Oscar Traynor trophy in 2004 managed Bridge United A on two occasions leading them to the last 16 of the FAI in 2001. One of those to pay tribute to Mr. Kelly was the Chairman of the Clare District Soccer League Jim Madden who described him as an ‘incredibly committed man’.
Patrick 'Cop' O'Sullivan
Pat O' Sullivan was a very popular lifetime member of the club, a player and club trustee. The 'Cop' O' Sullivan tournament which takes place every year around St Patricks weekend brings to gether all the community for a fun day of soccer with the local publicans organising teams for the day. It is an opportunity to bring together some of the greats from yesterryear and some that perhaps didn't realise they had such an appetite for the game. Young and old, male and female participate on the day.
Mikey 'Dubs' McInerney
Michael McInerney who passed away in 2007 was a member of the club since he moved to Sixmilebridge in 1977 from Dublin. He was involved in underage and junior teams and was also a club trustee. Mike won Clubman of the Year in 2003. He always lent a helping hand where he could, gave his time selflessly, was a friend to all.
