Michael is brother to Eamonn, Chairman of Munster Camogie Council and well known Camogie referee.
Camogie President Joan O’Flynn commented: “”On behalf of the Camogie Association I extend deepest sympathy to Mickey’s family. Mickey was hugely generous in his voluntary commitment to our game. He had an avid interest in Camogie at all levels. I pay generous tribute to his extensive involvement in the administrative and playing aspects of Camogie which he combined with a very busy life as a public representative and family man””.

Gerry Slevin RIP

“”Gerry was a superb chronicler of our games. His many publications memorably included Years of Plenty, published in 2005 and which told the story of the rise of Tipperary camogie between1999-2004. Gerry also served camogie at national level through his role as Chair of the Media Committee 2006-2009″”.
The Camogie President concluded: “”I know Michael’s and Gerry’s passings are very sad losses to many Camogie supporters in Tipperary and beyond but especially to their families. Our thoughts and prayers are with them. Ar dheis DÚ go raibh a anamacha dÝlÝs.””
