sad news

It is with sadness that we heard of the passing yesterday of John McKenna of SJBLSC

John was a senior RLSS man when we were kicking off two decades ago. Always good for a bit of guidance, never short of a joke, integrity in a place devoid of it.

The crew and rescue team at Sthoee offer our sincere condolences to John's family, you shared him with us over a lifetime, for that we will be eternally grateful.

Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.
