HALL OF FAME

Glynn Barntown`s Hall of Fame Nomination is:

Tom Rossiter

Toms association with GAA and Glynn Barntown club began as far back as 1966 when as a young boy he won a Nicky Rackard League medal with the schools. He was just 16yrs old when he served as club secretary, the youngest in the club’s history. Later he served as treasurer. In the mid 70s he became the club district representative, and then a county board delegate, a position he held for over 20 years under the stewardship of 5 county chairmen.
In 1985 Tom was part of the Wexford management, which won a Junior hurling All Ireland. Then when involved again two years later the team lost the final by the minimum margin.
1985 he was appointed Club Chairman a position he held for 13 years over a couple of terms, until he stepped down in 2016.
Through the years he was part of many club team managements, his greatest achievement was in 1996 when as manager he led our senior football team to our only senior title.
Since stepping away from the day to day running of the club, Tom is still an avid supporter who always helps with fundraising events.
When asked to reflect on his years, he says “My fondest and proudest memories are the development of the pitches and clubhouse at Killurin and being part of the clubs progress from Junior to dual senior over the past 50 years”.
