England recently of a former Asdee footballer Mickie White of Asdee
East who graced the football fields of North Kerry with distinction
with his beloved Asdee. Mikie was a member of the 1956 winning Asdee
team who won the North Kerry Intermediate Football Championship
playing a starring role at centre back along side his brother
Johnny,(R I P) in defeating Tarbert at the Shannonside Village.

(Batty, Johnny and Paddy all R.I.P) and one sister Ellen who currently
lives in England.
Mickie along with his brothers and sister attended the local school in
Asdee village. Mickie and his brothers loved all things football and
played for the local GAA team in Asdee. Locals in Asdee who remember
Mickie as a player all agree that he was a very good strong tough
player. He emigrated to London in the late twenties in search of work
but returned regularly to his beloved home to see his family
especially his mom
Mickie always kept abreast of what was happening in Asdee and called
his family regularly for the news from home. Mickie got the Kerryman
every week and sometimes had more news than his family at home had.
He met the love of his life Julia in 1972 in London and spent 44 years
together and had a wonderful life.
Mickie will be laid to rest in London on Tuesday 16th August 2016. On
behalf of St. Marys, Asdee G A A Club we would like to take this
opportunity to offer our deepest sympathy to all his family and
