Derek Holmes Family Fund

We have lost a dear and amazing friend, colleague, neighbour, teammate, a great husband and the best dad.  For those who haven't heard Derek Holmes passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, February 3rd.

Derek leaves behind his wife, Fionnuala McMahon, and their children Ciaran and Orla, as well as daughters Krissy and Tracy.
