"An unusally large gathering of people attended the Melbourne Cemetery on Sunday last out of respect to the memory of the late Mr. Timothy McInerney, so well known in football circles, and as a member of the Cathedral Club and Operative Mason's Society. The deceased was educated at St. Brigid's School, North Fitzroy, and was noted during his life, apart from his love athletics, for the sturdy and intelligent opinons he held on Catholic and national questions, and for his fearless expression of the same. In fact, it was through matters effecting both these priciplesthat he resigned with two others from the Carlton Football Club in 1889, after having played in tis premiership matches from 1886 to that year. His athletic ability soon gained for him an equally prominent place in the Fitzroy Football Club, which he served so faithfully from 1890 to 1893.
