The Committee and members of the Grove Lawn Tennis Club would like to pass on our sincere condolences to the family of Mr Bill O’Brien, who passed away last evening.
Bill O’Brien was Chairman of the Grove Lawn Tennis Club from 1970 to 1985.
Bill became Chairman of the club when it was going through a difficult period. At an EGM in 1970 it was proposed that the club should be wound up. Bill O’Brien and seconded by Peggy Burke moved a counter proposal that the club should continue and this counter proposal was carried. Bill was then elected Chairman of the club. The wonderful club we have today is due to the hard work put in by Bill and others during his Chairmanship.
Reposing tomorrow, Thursday afternoon, in Stafford’s Funeral Home, Strand Road, Portmarnock from 4pm until his removal to St. Sylvester’s Church, Malahide arriving for 6pm. Requiem Mass on Friday morning at 10am followed by burial in Fingal Cemetery. Enquiries to Stafford’s, Portmarnock 01 8462620.
