John Browne – deceased


The death has occurred of John Browne.

John joined Old Wesley from Tullow RFC in the late 1980s after a chance meeting with some Wesley players. A traditional style physical second-row John immediately claimed his place on our senior team.  He was a larger-than-life character both on and off the pitch and was always goods company.

He returned to Tullow where he continued as a player before going on to be involved in a number of committees and then became Club President in 1995.  He also dabbled in refereeing for a few years.  He was elected to the Leinster Junior Rugby Hall of Fame in 2020.

Old Wesley extends its sympathies to John’s wife Noreen, children Thea, Jan and Fleur and the rest of his family at this sad time.
