The Newtown Blues say goodbye to another legend of the club and county with the passing of Jimmy Mulroy today 12th Feb. 2013. Our thoughts are with his wife Chris, daughters Caoimhe & Christine and son Cormac at this difficult time. We are proud to have had him as a member and his legacy will never be forgotten. Let's remember him in all his glory. 

Before joining the Blues Jimmy played street football with Bothar Brugher.  In his first year in the Blue jersey the future star won a minor and a junior championship medal.  He was a versatile performer who could and did play in every position on the field.  Jimmy was a perfectionist who put a lot of thought into his play.  While the old traditional No 3 favoured brain mussle and brawn, Jimmy done a better job with skill and brains.

Over the years the future mayor and railways cup star played countless outstanding games but none better when winning his 9th senior championship medal in 1974.  Jimmy was a credit to his club, the suprime sportman and a gentleman on and off the field.

All Ireland junior medal in 1961.

He was an outstanding player through the most successful era of Blues history.
