Tom passed away in Portugal last night. Tom was a gent, and a great ambassador for Sea Angling. He was previously Chairman of the IFSA and the Angling Council of Ireland. On a personal level he gave Kieran and myself great encouragement to start Sea Angling Ireland SAC. He will be missed by many, many people, both in Ireland and abroad. Condolences to his family and friends. May he Rest in Peace.
