A HEART­BREAK­ING FAREWELL TO GARDA DAVID

Bray People - - FRONT PAGE - BY MARY FOG­A­RTY

THERE WAS deep sad­ness in Bray as Garda David Han­non was laid to rest last week.

A Bray na­tive, Garda Han­non (32) was a garda sta­tioned in Mullingar, Co West­meath, and lived in Bal­ly­more. A large num­ber of mourn­ers at­tended his fu­neral at St Pe­ter’s Church in Bray last Fri­day be­fore he was laid to rest at Shanganagh ceme­tery.

He is sur­vived by his wife Treasa, their three chil­dren, his par­ents Carmel and Dinny, his sis­ter Kirstie, his grand­mother Brigid, and many rel­a­tives and friends.

His sis­ter said this week that he ‘was the life and soul of every party.’

SUMO Run Ire­land will re­turn to the seafront in Bray on Sun­day, Au­gust 27.

100 per cent of the en­try fee goes to Pur­ple House Can­cer Sup­port Cen­tre.

Par­tic­i­pants will get to keep their sumo suit af­ter tak­ing on the 5km route. The run is open to ev­ery­one from the age of seven up, and there will be en­try for fam­i­lies, groups and teams.

Sumo run­ners will get to take part in sumo yoga, they will get a Re­nault Ire­land goodie bag, en­joy a per­for­mance by Bray Gospel Choir, and more.

‘ Thank you to the com­mu­nity of Bray for your con­tin­ued sup­port and help­ing to sup­port fam­i­lies in the lo­cal area and fur­ther afield,’ said a spokesman for Pur­ple House.
