May he rest in peace.The presentation subsequently went ahead on the Tuesday night with Hillview President Seamus O'Doherty and Joe Hickey in attendance. In his speech Seamus reminded the attendance of the long association the Hickey family, including Evan, have had with Hillview. Evan was a talented Juvenile player in his time and of course Joe filled many roles including Pitch & Putt Captain as well as being an active player. Finally Seamus passed over a cheque for 1,000 euro to Joe with the best wishes of all Hillview members to the Hickey family but especially to Evan that his planned operation will lead to a complete recovery.
