Don Byrne, RIP 19 October 2020

The family of Don Byrne would like to thank the community of Railway Union for their many messages of condolence on his recent sad passing. We were very touched by all the calls, cards and messages we received which were a great source of comfort to us at a difficult time. 

Don was a long time member of Railway playing hockey, tennis, bowls and trying his hand at other sports too over the years. He also greatly enjoyed the apres-match activities and the away trips and organising table quizzes. He made many friends of long standing in Railway and it was a big part of his life. The fact that it was always sunny in Railway for weekend matches while it was lashing raining at home in Dundrum was a mystery to us over the years and even got a mention in his eulogy. He tried to encourage the next generations to follow in his sporting footsteps and some of his grandsons played hockey in Railway and he loved going to see them. 

Due to the current restrictions in these difficult times we could not have the send off for Don we would have wanted. Thank you again to all at Railway for your kindness and memories of Don. 

Helene, Don’s wife, and children Rachel, Joanne, Gavin, Laura and Clare and seven grandchildren.
