Feilim McHenry R.I.P.

(28 Dec 2019)

We were deeply saddened to hear of the passing, following a long illness, of club stalwart and former President, Feilim McHenry.

Feilim was a loyal servant to the club over many years from when he joined the club in Clonskeagh, to when in 1980 the club moved to Kilternan.

Over the course of this long involvement he held a number of positions on various committees and teams and in 1984-85 he proudly served as the last President of Palmerston FC.

Feilim's love of the club was very much shared by the McHenry family, with his wife Annette managing the club shop during the 1980s and his son CJ also playing for the club's first team.

In 1999 Feilim's service to club rugby was recognised by the IRFU when he was selected as manager of the Ireland Rugby World Cup team, with his blazer fittingly framed and on display to this day in the Presidents' Bar at Kirwan Park.

May Feilim rest in peace.
