Mrs Kathleen Larkin RIP

(Appreciation by Adrian Curley, Chairperson)
2018 may have been the year of the long hot summer, but it came to an abrupt halt last week as a dark cloud hung over the Tullamore Harriers Club, with the sad news of the passing of Mrs Kathleen Larkin. Kathleen Larkin, nee Hayden, was the wife of the late Paddy Larkin, one of the founding members of Tullamore Harriers. The old adage that behind every great man is a great woman was never more relevant than when referring to Kathleen. She was a huge support to Paddy and the Club members throughout the years as they endeavoured to realise their dreams to establish a world class facility for the town of Tullamore, and the development of athletics nationwide. Kathleen was an integral part of the team which ran the Social Centre hosting event after event to raise funds for the Club’s numerous projects. Kathleen was hugely popular with all the club members who interacted with her throughout the decades. Hard working, determined and light hearted were among her many attributes. Since Paddy’s passing in 2006, Kathleen had maintained a keen interest in the Club. This continued connection with the Club was sustained through her close relationship with her brother and club stalwart Mick Hayden, and Paddy’s niece Sharon Daly, Club Secretary. The Chairperson, Committee, and all the members of Tullamore Harriers would like to express their deepest sympathies to Kathleen’s family Michael, Adrian, Paula and Denise, and the extended Larkin and Hayden families.
