Sad to relate that Eddie O'Leary, a stalwart of the CI, and some 40+ years of participating in the Liverpool Quiz League with C.I.Edwardians, passed away at the age of 84.
I remember making my debut for Old Cathinians at centre half to find a 50+ year old Eddie at sweeper, ready for his umpteenth season in the Zingari League.
He'd been suffering from bowel cancer for about a year and had not appeared for the Edwardians since March of last year.
Prior to this he had been virtually ever-present as the Edwardians No.4 for the best part of 45 years.
He will be greatly missed.
Funeral Mass for Eddie O'Leary will take place at 10.00am on Friday 25th March at St Cecilia's Catholic Church, 21/23 Green Lane, Tuebrook, Liverpool, L13 7DT.
