George Brennan RIP

It is with great sadness that we learnt that George Brennan passed away this morning. George was a long time committee member and anybody who came to races with us would have seen him at the finish line with his clicker. He was missed at races in the last year or so but kept tabs on races from afar. George was our treasurer and officially retired from that position a few years back but continued to assist on all matters financial until recently in spite of his failing health.

Arrangements are now available on

Reception into Our Lady of Lourdes Church, Ballinlough Monday (27th) at 7.00pm. Requiem Mass on Tuesday (28th) at 11.00am, funeral afterwards to St. Michael’s Cemetery, Blackrock.
