The Irish Family Farm Rights Group (IFRG) are mourning the loss of the lobby-group’s co-founder Tommy Gunning, who passed away at his home on Tuesday (July 2nd).
In a post to the groups Facebook page, Donie shine said, “It is with deep regret and sadness that I have learned of the sudden passing of my dear friend and colleague Tommy Gunning.
Tommy, myself and others founded the 'Farm Rights Group back in 2015 and the Organisation could not have been the success that it has become without Tommy's exceptional organisational skills, knowledge of the industry and most importantly his constant good humour.
On behalf of all in the 'Farm Rights Group, I wish to extend our sincere condolences to his wife Cathy, his daughter Sandra and to all his family and friends. Ar dheis De go raibh a anam." - Donie Shine”.
Tommy’s remains will repose at his home at Farm, Williamstown, Co. Galway, today, (July 4), from 4:00pm – 7:00pm.
