It is with great sadness that we recently learned of the passing of Paddy Craddock ,may he rest in peace. A member of the first Malahide United FC Club team that was formed in 1946, Paddy played through the ‘40s and ‘50s for Malahide and was a committed committee member for many years. He blazed a trail to allow the club to become what we have today. He was a strong part of the development of the club. When the first team’s home pitch was at that time on the Yellow Walls Road called The Marshes, we then moved to a pitch in St Margareth’s Road. How times have changed. The club is indebted to his continuous commitment and support to the club at all times, a great supporter on match days and always looking for the club’s result. A wonderful long life that sadly has come to an end. A legend in his lifetime Ard Dheis De Go Raibh a Anam.
