Tallaght Rugby Club was greatly saddened to hear of the passing yesterday of Elizabeth (Lil) Behan, wife of our former President Gregg and mother of our former player Danny. Lil fought a long battle with illness with bravery and dignity. A minutes silence was held in her memory at today’s men’s match in Blackrock.

The Funeral Mass is on Wednesday at 10am in St Agnes’ Church, Crumlin Village, thereafter for cremation in Mount Jerome Crematorium (Victoria Chapel). Family flowers only, please. Donations, if desired, to Arc (donation box in church).

Our thoughts are with Gregg, Danny, Katie and all Lil’s family and friends. RIP.
