John McDonough

28 Jan 2021 | Information

Ulster Hockey is very saddened to hear of the sudden passing yesterday of John McDonough, a stalwart of the local game with many friends in the Ulster Hockey family. 

We send our sincere condolences to John’s wife Margaret, daughter Jenny (Harlequins Ladies HC), son Andrew together with the larger family circle at this most difficult time.

John was a member of the Queen’s University Men’s HC Irish Senior Cup winning team in 1972 and then played for the Belfast YMCA/Holywood 87 Men’s Club and afterwards coached at the Harlequins Ladies Club. Recently up to 2020, John served as a Board Director of Hockey Ireland and was widely respected for his love and work for hockey in Ulster and Ireland.
