Eddie Hughes – RIP
On the same day as Pat Hooper’s death, we were further saddened by the passing of Eddie Hughes. For decades, Eddie had been a regular BHAA runner as part of the AIB team. He also was a volunteer at many races. With his buddy Maurice Timmons RIP, they organised the AIB annual cross country race at the Maynooth University campus.
He served with distinction on the BHAA committee including as Treasurer and then as auditor. He smiled easily, was considerate, friendly and helpful. He continued to race in his sixties and was a demonstration of the joys and benefits of running.
He was a great supporter of Leinster and Ireland rugby. We lost a stalwart but we are better for having known Eddie and his graceful ways. He is a big loss to his family and friends but memories of him are fond and inspiring.
The Dublin BHAA extends its condolences to his family, and friends.
