P2P.ie were very sad to learn of the passing of Kerry native Donie Sheahan who died peacefully at his home in his 96th year.
A minute silence was observed at Listowel Races on Thursday in memory of Donie, who passed away at the age of 95.
Donie will be known to many on the racing and point-to-point circuit, and owned many good horses over the years including the talented mare For Bill who won eleven races including two point-to-point wins whilst under the care of Michael Winters.
Our thoughts are with his children Liam, Kieran, Aileen, Kathryn and Paul, and extended family and friends.
