The members of Dundrum Table Tennis Club would like to
acknowledge and pay tribute to our founder member and President, Joe
Tansey Daly, who died on Tuesday 16th
Feb 2010. Joe would
have been ninety years old in just a few weeks time. The Social
Club was founded by Joe and Seamus Kane
with a few other friends,
way back around 1945.
- The cycling club Orwell Wheelers and the Table Tennis club all
met in the old premises beside Simpsons Hospital. We played league
matches there two nights a week, against some of the best players in
Dublin. I have a lot to thank Joe for, he taught me all he could
about playing matches. I still hear him giving me advice when I’m
- The club is still going strong, and now meets in the GAA club in
Stillorgan Industrial Park.
- We will do our best Joe, to keep it going for another 50
Pat O’Kane, Secretary Dundrum Table Tennis Club, and all the
Joe with club members in the old clubhouse.
Joe with some of the ladies.
