It was with great sadness that we learned of the passing away of Kieran Cranny this Saturday, July 25th. Kieran, vice-president of the club, is our longest-standing member, having joined in 1963/64. He will be remembered fondly by everyone he came in contact with in the club. He was President from 1979-1982 inclusive, but that only hints at his overall contribution. A fuller posting about Kieran’s contributions to the club over many years will be arranged soon. Kieran was 88.
