Colm Church RIP

It is with deep sadness that we learned of the sudden passing of our wonderful friend, colleague and former Chairman, Colm Church last Friday, 14th July, 2023.  

His contribution to St Raphael’s is immeasurable and he has played a huge part in the success of St Raphael’s over the last 17 years.  We are forever indebted to him and will miss him terribly.  

Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife Lorraine, children Robert and Ellen, their partners, his granddaughter Sienna and all his family and friends.

As a mark of respect for Colm, our flags are flying at half mast, and we have a book of condolences at our office for signing.

Rest well our friend.
