Medal presented to the late Jack Grace, Graignamanagh

Dear Editor,

Dear Editor,

For years I’ve been trying to find out any information on my late father who received a special medal in recognition of his services to the Kilkenny Team - I believe he assisted with the training of the Dublin based players . My father John (Jack) Grace was from Graignamanagh

The attached notice which appeared in your paper - I believe in September 1941 - makes a reference to it. Unfortunately, the medal was stolen many years ago and despite contacting many GAA organisations, I’ve been unable to find out anything about it, what it may have looked like or if this was a common occurrence to present such medals. I would be delighted to get any information at all relating to it. Any support you might be able to provide in tracking this down would be deeply appreciated.

Yours etc.,

Liam Grace,
