It is with great sadness the Society learnt yesterday of the passing of Anthony McDonald, long standing IRRS member, advocate and devoted volunteer of many years to our library and archive.
Many of our members and those in the railway community far and wide will be very familiar with Anthony and will be greatly saddened to hear this news. The Society has lost a most valued member and friend and all those in the IRRS express their deepest sympathies to his wife and family at this time.
The funeral of our late friend and colleague Anthony takes place this afternoon (Wednesday 22 April) at 2pm (available to view via webcam). Please see details and link on rip.ie as below: https://rip.ie/deat…/anthony-mcdonald-leixlip-kildare/420867 http://oln.ie/site/live-webcam/
May he Rest in Peace.
