It is with great sadness that I relay the news that Shane Hall passed away yesterday, unexpectedly. Shane had been a member of Rathmines chess club for at least 20 years, most recently as a member of the Rathmines B team in the BEA. Although not a strong player, Shane’s enthusiasm, friendliness, love of chess and good nature was always apparent. I never heard him once complain of ill health or make any fuss about his sight loss. He always accepted his defeats with good grace and delighted in his victories. He chose an attacking style of chess that maximised fun and creativity. He will be sadly missed.
The death has occurred of Shane HALL of Dublin
Unexpectedly, at his home. Shane, beloved son of Col (retd) John and Mary, loving brother of Mary, Karen, Adam and Jean; very sadly missed by his mum, dad, sisters, brother and their partners, his nieces Ciara, Laoise and Zoe, nephews Patrick and Oisín and both the Hall and Barclay family and friends.
Reposing in Quinns of Glasthule on Monday, March 19, from 3pm to 5pm. Removal on Tuesday, March 20, to St. Joseph’s Church Glasthule, arriving at 9.50am for 10am Funeral Mass, followed by burial in Glasnevin Cemetery. House private. No flowers, please. Donations, if desired, to the National Council for the Blind.
May He Rest in Peace
