on the 22nd of March 2021 Kilmaine GAA lost a stalwart of the club, it is a sad day for the McGrath family and all associated with Kilmaine GAA. PJ Mcgrath was an established player, representing his county and club with great prestige as a club player PJ won an intermediate title with Kilmaine in 68, and was part of the Mayo senior and junior panel in 66, as a trainer he helped Kilmaine to an intermediate title in 77.
He was chairman of the club for many years before moving on to become south board chairman then on to county board chairman. He became president of the Connaught Council and ran for president of the GAA.
PJ was also a well established referee, having refereed the 1982 all Ireland final between Kerry and Offaly and he went on to referee in 4 different continents.
Despite a glittering career in GAA PJ never forgot his home club, there was always time to attend anything Kilmaine GAA related be it conventions or lend some advise in the stands. (The stand he officially opened)
All involved with Kilmaine would like to extend our deepest sympathies to the extended McGrath families
