Phil was a kind hearted, and honest person. Loved his family, GAA and All Boro Floors. Salt of the earth. Sponsor of Longford in NY for years, long before it was common. He was so proud to sponsor @monaghangaa

In memory of the late Phil Traynor, who first sponsored the club way back in 1992.
He wasn’t from Longford, but he supported us nonetheless. Proud Monaghan man.
Rest In Peace Phil, from all your many Longford friends in New York. @NewYorkGAA @monaghangaa pic.twitter.com/wWK55O9Eqj
