Pat O’Connor from Saltmills who passed away last March pictured with the Boley team, Sept 1977, after winning their first international open club 640kg championship. Pat was a member of An Garda Siochana which he joined in 1955, was a member of the very successful Coolock tug of war team of the seventies & early eighties before joining the equally successful Midlanders team of the eighties. Pat was a very fit man for his size and was never late for any competition. He retired from the guards in 1994, he was stationed in Raheny. We extend our deepest sympathy to all his family & friends – from the Boley Tug of War club.
