It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of our great colleague and friend Dr Brendan Doyle.
Brendan has been a member of the Association’s Council for the past 20 years.
The Association became somewhat dormant in the early part of the last decade and he was a key figure in the re-organisation that took place in 2005.
He served as Chairman for eight years from 2005 and became Honorary Treasurer when he stood down as Chairman in 2013.
He remained Honorary Treasurer until the recent Annual General Meeting when he stood down and was elected to a Council position.
During all those years he also represented the Association on the National Hunt programmes working group.
Brendan will be a big loss not only to the Racehorse Owners Association but to racing as a whole.
He made a major contribution in working on behalf of racehorse owners and to racing in general.
We express our deepest sympathy to his family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them at this sad time.
Ar Dheis De Go Raibh A Anam.
