Terry O'Donoghue R.I.P.




The Commodore, staff, and members of Howth Yacht Club extend their deepest sympathies to the family and friends of longtime member, Terry O'Donoghue, who has sadly passed away. May she rest in peace.

Terry was one of our oldest serving members. We believe she started sailing in Howth Sailing Club after the Second World War with Audrey Pearson, in around 1948. As well as sailing, and a gourmet cook, she was renowned for her apres-sail suppers in the old clubhouse. Terry was also an active bridge club member and, until recently, was a regularly sea swimmer and formidable poker player.

Terry will be missed by her friends at HYC especially at Friday lunches.
