Donal O’Connell R. I. P. May he rest in peace
It is with deep sadness that we learned of the passing of our Honorary President and dear friend in cycling Donal O’Connell, who died on Tuesday, 26th January after a long period of illness.
Donal was a driving force behind the IVCA since it’s foundation, as well as having been a great rider – and national Road Race champion – in his own right. Above all, he was a gentleman and a role model to us all in terms of his sportsmanship and fairness
The IVCA will be his lasting legacy. We will miss him.
Our thoughts and sympathies are with his wife, Lily, and his family at this difficult time.
May he rest in peace.
Reposing at Our Lady’s Hospice Mortuary Chapel from 6pm on Thursday evening (28 January) prior to his removal on Friday evening (29
January) to the Church of the Holy Spirit, Greenhills arriving at 5.30pm. Funeral on Saturday morning (30 January) after 10am Mass
to Palmerstown Cemetery.
Family flowers only please.
Donations, if desired, to Our Lady’s Hospice, Harold’s Cross.
