Tipperary Mourns Camogie Child Death

Emily Wilson RIP

Emily Wilson RIP

It is with sincere regret and heartfelt sympathy that we learn of the death of 10 year old Emily Wilson, Clonmiclan, Gortnahoe, Co Tipperary.

The much loved daughter and only child of Michael and Catriona Wilson, Emily collapsed while doing warm-up exercises before a junior game, at Gortnahoe /Glengoole GAA sports field, in the quiet Co Tipperary village of Gortnahoe, at around 9.30am on Saturday last.

It is understood Emily suffered an underlying heart condition to which her family were totally unaware.

Club Mentors and Paramedics, using the club’s defibrillator, carried out CPR in a desperate attempt to resuscitate her; however, despite the best efforts of all personnel, they were unable to revive her.

Emily was moved to South Tipperary General Hospital where she was later pronounced dead.

Messages of sympathy can be found on the Gortnahoe National School Facebook, where she attended school.

Our sincere sympathy goes to all Emily’s family and friends and our thoughts and prayers are with you all, on this truly sad occasion.

Emily’s remains will repose in Doyle’s Funeral Home, Urlingford, and her funeral Mass will take place on Wednesday at 11.30am, followed by her burial in the nearby Good Shepherd Cemetery, in Gortnahoe.

Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”
