Séumas O’Brien RIP

foroigeadmin April 20, 2019

We are shocked and deeply saddened to hear of the sudden passing of Séumas O’Brien, former National Chairperson of Foróige (2004-2006). Séumas was a current serving member of the organisation’s National Council, a volunteer with Glanmire Youth Project and former Club Leader of Knockraha Foróige Club in Co. Cork.

Séumas was a tower of quiet strength and wisdom. He was a remarkable man who was driven by a deep concern for other people and a profound belief in the potential of every young person.
