Ray O’Connell R.I.P

The Irish Table Tennis community was deeply saddened to hear of the recent death of Ray O’Connell.
Ray, who passed away in February, was a past pupil of Belvedere College (1946) and had a long association with Table Tennis in Ireland.
As a Board member of the ITTA, Ray first served as Treasurer during the 1970’s before being elected Chairman in 1977, a position he held until 1983.
Ray was also a member of the committee which organised the successful World Veterans Championship in the RDS, Dublin in 1992.
Through his association with Table Tennis, Ray built a deep and lasting friendship with our Life President, Mr Joe Veselsky.

To his loving wife, Marie, daughter Kathyrn and extended family, we extend our deepest sympathy.

May he rest in peace.
