It is with regret that I report on the death of Brendan O’Malley. Brendan was President of the BLI in 1991 and the following year took over the role of Honorary Treasurer. He served as Treasurer of the BLI until 2006 when he retired in order to take up the roll of IBA President. I personally new Brendan whom I worked with many years ago. When I first stepped on a bowling green it was Brendan who showed me how to hold the bowl and explained to me what the bias is all about. He will be missed. The BLI offer their sympathies to his wife Helen and his sons Stephen and Killian and extended family.
The Funeral Mass for Brendan will take place at 11oc in the Church of St Jude the Apostle, Templeogue on Friday (November 19) which may be viewed through the parish web camera at: https://churchmedia.tv/camera/st-jude-the-apostle-templeogue followed by committal in Newlands Crematorium.
