Sean Cullinane receiving a Distinguished Service Award from Barry Peelo at the Cork Soccer Awards Cermony 2011.
It was with great sadness I learned of one of Cork Soccer's "True Gentlemans" untimely passing, Sean (Johnnie) Cullnane (late President of Glenvale FC). Sean was for me truly one of the kindest, most cheerful people I have had the pleasure of meeting in my time involved in Refereeing over the last 20 years. A man I used to meet regularly around Town and at games he never had a negative thing to say about anything or anyone, and was always full of encouragement for all around him.
On behalf of all Members of The Cork Branch of the Irish Soccer Referees Society we wish to extend our deepest sympathy to the Cullinane family on the recent bereavement of Sean.
May he rest in peace.
