Brewery Lane Theatre would like to join with other organisations in Carrick-on-Suir in paying tribute to the late Jack Lalor.
Jack was the quintessential ‘community man’.
There is hardly an organisation in Carrick that he wasn’t involved in or connected to at some stage of his fruitful life.
Although Jack wasn’t a drama enthusiast, nevertheless he was front of house at the group’s first production in the Foresters’ Hall in 1955.
In later years when he became correspondent for the local newspapers he delighted in highlighting our venue and productions.
Jack took pride in the success of Carrick people whether on stage or in the sporting arena.
Carrick also took pride in the achievements of Jack Lalor.
As a member of the Kiely Athletic Club in 1959 he won the Irish 100yds championship in Dublin.
In 1960 he won County and Munster Championship and retained the Irish Championship.
He competed for the last time in 1961 when he won the County and Munster 100 and 220 yds.
Whether as Sportsman, Councillor, Newspaper Correspondent or his involvement in a myriad of charities and causes, Jack gave his time and his talents to the Carrick community.
For so many years he was part of the Carrick social landscape. He has cycled out of our lives for the last time and will be greatly missed.
We in Brewery Lane wish to convey our heartfelt condolances to Kitty, children and grandchildren, siblings and extended family.
