Family man Aidan was a huge GAA fan

THE DEATH of Mr. Aidan Broaders of Talbot Green has caused deep sadness to his family and friends.

Aidan died on March 10 in Carrick Túr Nursing Home in Enniscorthy after fighting illness for nearly seven years.

Aged 67, he was pre-deceased by his loving wife Betty who died in 2003 on her birthday, three days after Aidan suffered a stroke on his 61th birthday. He will be greatly missed by his son John; daughter-in-law Cassandra and grandson Dillon. He is also survived by his brother, sister, aunts, uncles, nephews and nieces.

Aidan was born in Ballyfinogue, Killinick in 1942 and in his early years worked as a farmhand around the area. He is best known for his time working with Meyler's Tyres and George Stafford Ltd. A keen follower of all sports, he loved horse-racing and GAA. He was a great father, grandfather, friend and neighbour and will be missed by everyone who knew him.

He was hospitalised following the stroke and was unable to make Betty's funeral. He missed her terribly and never really came to terms with her death.

In September 2003, he went to live with his son John and family and spent the following six years being cared for by them before being admitted to Carrick Túr nursing home in September 2009.

Aidan was buried with his beloved wife Betty in St. Ibar's Cemetery, Crosstown on March 12.
