Joe was one of two brothers with us in the 30's alongside Dermot 1930-34. He never married but Joe's Knock connection lived on through his nephews; Sean, class '69 and the Brennan brothers from Arklow - Darragh class '59, Colin class '61 and Declan class '65.

Aged 95 at time of passing, Joe was one of our last living past men from the 30's. We extend our sympathies to the wider Clarke and Brennan families.

Requiescat in Pace.
