Glynn Barntown GAA Club wrote on their Facebook page: ‘It is with great sadness that we extend our deepest sympathies to the McGuiness family on the sad passing of our young clubman Conall.

Conall was a great addition to our club playing underage football through all age groups and representing Wexford at county minor level in 2019. Conall went onto play adult level with the club winning a Junior B title recently.

The youth of our club are so important to us and to lose a young man like Conall has devastated his many mentors, teammates and friends.

His funeral mass will take place in St. Alphonsus Church in Barntown on Friday at 12 noon and he will be buried in the church cemetery.
