There was a massive outpouring of shock and grief at the untimely and unexpected passing of Bree Meagher, wife of Buccaneers RFC recent past president Dr. Tom Meagher. Bree was an energetic, willing and capable member of the club’s Ladies committee for many years.
Her sons Justin and Stuart played for many seasons for the club and she took great pride in their on-field exploits for Buccs. However, she was especially proud during Tom’s season as President in 2017/18 when she was a tower of support to him.
Bridie was also a keen golfer who had been ladies captain at Glasson Golf Club and was a trustee of Athlone Golf Club. She was highly proficient at bridge, which she played several times weekly.
An engaging conversationalist and a person who acknowledged the volunteerism by members of Buccaneers RFC, Bree will be greatly missed. It was fitting that there was a large turnout, socially distancing, providing a line of honour as her funeral cortege passed Dubarry Park.
Her loss will be greatest of course to her family, and the committee and members of Buccaneers extend our heartfelt sympathy to Tom, Justin, Stuart and daughter Benita, their spouses and children, and the wider family and friends. May the Lord grant her eternal rest.
Deepest sympathy is also extended to Bart Flanagan and family on the death of his sister Leila Cahill and sincere condolences are also extended to Michael Duignan and family on the passing of his father Peadar.
