Tallaght Rugby Club is devastated to announce the sudden death of our Youth Development Officer Philip Preston. The Club would like to pass our heartfelt and sympathies to Aoife, Kayleigh, his family and friends. Phillip was a man mountain with a heart of solid gold, his contribution to our club will never be matched on or off the field.
His commitment to his community was recognised by everyone in Tallaght and he was rightly appointed Tallaght person of the year last year.

Reposing at his home on Friday from 4pm to 7pm. Removal on Saturday to St. Mary’s Priory, Tallaght Village arriving for 11am Mass. Funeral immediately afterwards to Newlands Cross Crematorium.

“I’m completely devastated that our talisman has passed away and has been taken from us so abruptly and unfairly. The whole community will never come to terms with this loss; everyone in the club is absolutely devastated. We, as a club, will come together and offer whatever support is needed to Aoife and the entire Preston family. There will never be another Philly Preston his boots are simply too big to fill” – Ken Kinsella President Tallaght RFC
