Noel Whelan Death, Obituary – The tragic news of the demise of Noel Whelan, who was well-known and liked across the Athenry community, has left us speechless and unable to find any solace in our grief. In addition to being one of the first people to take part in our 50/50 draw, Noel was also the person in charge of laying the blockwork for our clubhouse. My deepest condolences go out to Noel’s family as well as all of his many, many friends who were shocked and upset to learn of his loss. May he rest in peace. Rip Noel Dont believe it absolute gentleman R.I.P. Twenty years ago, Noel Whelan gave me a loan of the Athenry shirt that he has maintained ownership of up till the present day.
An wonderful dude. Someone who disappeared after playing a significant part in the past of the town of Athenry has been identified. We pray that the Lord will grant Noel a peace that will not fade away. Rest in peace Noel. One of the most admirable people I’ve ever had the honor of calling a friend in my whole life is one of the people you see here. Following his passing, he will be remembered fondly by a huge number of people all over the world, including myself and a great number of other individuals. Sad times
