The late Patsy Ratty.

The death has occurred suddenly of Patsy Ratty, who was a part of Meath's 1954 All-Ireland winning panel, and a key Navan O'Mahonys figure both as a player and committee member.

Winner of an All-Ireland JFC medal in 1952, his collection of trophies includes seven SFC and five Feis Cups with O'Mahonys.

He was the first O Mathuna stalwart to be selected as an Irish Independent Sports Star of the Week, when he scored seven of Meath's eight points against Armagh in the NFL semi-final of 1956.

Husband of the late Patsy, he is survived by his family,  John, Siobhan and Patrica, sister May, brother-in-law Vincent, sons-in-law Henry and John, daughter-in-law Cepta, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, relatives and friends.
