An extraordinary gathering of mourners paid their final respects to the late former Old Paradians’ Amateur Football Club Captain Terence Considine, at Cheltenham’s Our Lady of Assumption Church on Thursday 27 February.
The Thanksgiving Mass, at which Father Joe Caddy (Parade 1977) was one of three Celebrants, attracted a conservative estimate of 1100 people – amongst them those connected with either the College or the Old Paradians’ Amateur Football Club at which Terry served with such distinction as a player through the 1970s and 80s.
Terry was 58 when he died on February 21, having suffered a heart attack whilst holidaying on the Gold Coast. He was the son of the long-serving Old Paradians Premiership-winning Senior Coach and President Maurie Considine, and older brother to Brendon, Vin, Paul and Matt, all of whom represented the football club with distinction as players.

Terry is survived by his wife Patrice, daughter Fiona and sons Peter and Joe. 
The VAFA Executive and Staff send their best wishes to the Considine family and the Old Paradians Football Club.
