The sudden & untimely death yesterday, of Hugh Conlon, one of the founder members of Galway Motorsport Marshals Club, and the club secretary for many years, was greeted with sadness and disbelief.

As the sad news filtered across the airways, the wider Irish Motorsport family stunned by his sudden death, are slowly coming to terms with the loss of this wonderful ambassador of Motorsport.

Hugh was a active member of Galway Motor Club, and he will be best remembered for his role of Chief Time Keeper at GMC Events, always a friendly smile, Hugh had  time to chat to everyone.

Over the years, he served in the many and varied roles as a Motorsport official throughout Ireland, just like his role as a timekeeper, you could set your watch by Hugh, if he said he'd be at the Rally Stage at 5am. You could be sure of that.

Motorsport has lost a wonderful ambassador, and we have lost a very dear colleague...

The Committee and Members of Galway Motorsport Marshals Club offer our sincere sympathies to the Conlon family at this very sad time.

May You Rest in Peace Hugh...


Suddenly. Formerly of the O.P.W., Galway. Deeply regretted by his family, brothers Peter and Tom, sisters Margaret (Hernan), Nellie (Carr), Kathleen (Cummins), relatives and friends.
