It is with deep regret to learn of the passing of Pat Byrne. Pat was a staunch Buccaneers supporter who took great pride in the input and achievements of his family at the club. Sons Paul, Sean and Ruairi all played with distinction at the club with the latter being last season’s Senior Player of the Year. Their playing tradition is being carried on by his grandchildren including Kyle, Buccs U-17s captain this season. That squad is coached by Paul who is also current Senior head coach at the Athlone club.

Pat was also a very active member of the Squash section of the club at the former Keane Park. His presence and encouragement on the terraces at matches will be missed by all at the club. But, of course, his greatest loss will be to his family especially to wife Liz.
Heartfelt condolences are extended to Liz, daughters Sharon and Lisa, sons Paul, Sean and Ruairi and the wider Byrne and Fagan families.

May the Lord grant Pat eternal rest.
