It is with great sadness that the Foreign Correspondents’ Club confirms the unexpected passing of our legendary 2nd Vice President, long-standing Governor and great friend Kevin Egan yesterday.
Kevin had suffered some ill health recently but appeared back to his usual energetic and humorous self; he was working full time on court work in his successful barrister’s practice and on Club matters having recently been elected as 2nd Vice President. So this has come as a great shock to his family, friends and to all of us at the FCC who will greatly miss him.
We would request that the privacy of Kevin’s family and friends be observed at this difficult time. Details of Kevin’s funeral and memorial events will be circulated as soon as they are available. Kevin would no doubt have wanted us to celebrate his life in style and we fully intend to honour those wishes.
