The Captain, Lady Captain, President, Council and members of Portsalon Golf Club were saddened to learn of the passing of Seamus Farren last week.
Seamus was a familiar and friendly face in Portsalon down the years, both on the fairways and in his role with Farren Roarty Accountants, the club’s long-time auditors. He fought a typically brave battle with illness over recent years, all the while skippering his Letterkenny GC team to successive Donegal League titles in the face of ill-health. Sympathy is extended his wife Anne and family, as well as his many friends in Letterkenny Golf Club.
