Very sad to report that our good friend Kevin Connolly passed away last Friday. Kevin, a co-founder of Group 20ten, member of the Baha’i community, Waterford GIY and Native Woodland Trust, had been living in Copenhagen and his funeral takes place there tomorrow, Friday 23 November.
Please see the message below about a memorial for Kevin here in Waterford.

  1. Sorry that shoulda said ‘batter’ of joints not better, it’s ok Spats’ll know what i mean – iano

  2. Kevin ‘Spats’ Connolly was one of my friends growing up in Dundalk. He was one of the most recent lads I knew. He was the kinda fella who would do anything for you if he could. He was someone you always had a good time when we were hang about together and we always partied like it might be our last chance as you did when you were kids. He used to be a big mate with the late Fintan Hopper, what a double act they were. In his memory I’m gonna get. Some of his mates here in Dundalk crack open a couple of beers, skin up a better of joints and wish him every happiness in his new life, love you Spats xxxx
