It is with great sadness that yesterday we heard of the passing of Jim Hayes. Jim was a great community man, and an avid supporter of Athletics.  Jim, along with Dan Mccarthy, Dermot O'Leary and John Gough, were the founders of the original St. Catherine's Athletics club, back in the late 70s/80s. His enthusiasm for our sport will live long in our club, with many of his family members the cornerstones of the club today. We all have fond memories of meeting Jim at various events, and he was always good for a bit of encouragement, at the right time, during a cross country race. Sincere sympathy to his Wife Anne, sons and daughters; Orla, Emer, Frank, Liam, Kevin, Anne Marie, and all the extended Hayes family. Rest in Peace
