Pat Glynn RIP

11 May 2017

Pat Glynn, formerly ranked number two in Ireland, has passed away recently. He had represented Ireland more than twenty times in his career. The majority of those appearances were with Colum Slevin during the 1970s.

From Birmingham, he developed his penhold style playing in the local leagues with clubmates Andy Frain, Michael Browne and also former England number one Trevor Taylor. He played in the Bundesliga for several seasons. Like many players, in latter years he had returned to play on the veterans circuit. He really enjoyed playing at the recent VETTS  tournament at Thornbury, where he mentioned that he planned to play some events in Ireland next season.

 

A service for Pat will take place at 4pm on Friday, 12 May at Sandwell Valley Crematorium, UK

Our thoughts and sympathies go to his family and many friends at this difficult time.
