Skye Camanachd marked the passing of highly respected local mum, Morag Grant, with a minute’s silence during their latest fixture

Morag, from Portree, was a well known local in Portree for many years and was a well-known figure within her own community and further afield until her death last week when she passed away peacefully aged 85 years.

Her four sons all represented Skye Camanachd with her eldest son Ewen  captaining Skye Camanachd to Sutherland Cup victory in 1979. He also went on to become Skye Camanachd Club Secretary for a number of years as well as being a founder member of the Skye Camanachd Social Club Committee. His brothers Derek Grant, Campbell Grant and Alasdair Grant also all played for the club and all four have maintained a keen interest in the game and support for the team to this day.

Morag’s Grandson David Grant currently captain’s the Skye Camanachd second team and a number of his cousins have also played for the club.

To mark her passing there was a minute’s silence ahead of Skye’s game with  Kinlochshiel at Pairc nan Laoch, in Portree.

Morag’s funeral will take place at the Church of Scotland, Portree on Thursday 25 August 2016. The Service starts at 2pm with the internment at Portree Cemetery thereafter. There will be soup and sandwiches and a warm welcome at the Skye Camanachd Clubhouse afterwards.

A club spokesperson said: “The sympathies from everyone at Skye Camanachd go out to Morag’s family and friends.”
