Austin’s daughter Carmel Quirke is involved in the club, his son John is involved with the Camogie club, his son-in-law is our former secretary Pat Quirke and his grandsons Cathal and Liam Quirke are former junior hurlers while his granddaughters Róisín Quirke and Isabelle and Ruth Cregan are members of our Camogie club.
His niece Ethel Browne is also involved with Crecora Camogie club.
