Professor Arthur Tanner – Deceased

Professor Arthur Tanner – Deceased

It is with great sadness that we have learnt of the death of Professor Arthur Tanner.  Arthur has been our Hon. Medical Officer for many years and was always willing to attend matches or provide professional advice to injured players.  In his younger days he played junior rugby with Old Wesley. He was also Medical Officer to the Leinster team where he was highly regarded and loved by the players and management alike.

On behalf of Old Wesley I would like to offer our deepest sympathy to his wife Ann and family on this very sad occasion.

On behalf of Old Wesley RFC

Dave Pierce – Club President
