All of us in NCBI are deeply shocked and saddened by the sudden death of our colleague and friend Gerard Byrne. Gerard passed away at his home in Lucan on Saturday 14th October and his funeral takes place on Thursday 19th October at 11.30am in St. Teresa’s Church, Clarendon Street, followed by burial at Glasnevin Cemetery.
Gerard joined NCBI in 2003 and was Regional Manager for South Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow until last year, when he became National Services Manager. Throughout his career he was an advocate for people with disabilities. He was also a talented and passionate musician and an avid Chelsea fan.
Our thoughts and deepest sympathies are with Gerard’s partner Annette, his sons Mark and Philip, his brothers and sister and his family and friends, at this very difficult time.
May he rest in peace.
