Des Simon

Ulster Hockey have learned of the sad passing of former Ulster and Irish President, Des Simon. 

Des who was 101 was a former international umpire and devoted many years to hockey in both Ulster and Ireland and as well as holding both presidential roles he was also the Honorary Secretary for the branch from 1970 to 1988. 

A long-serving member and stalwart of Cliftonville Hockey Club for many years, Des was awarded the Personality of the Year Award at the Ulster Hockey Annual Awards in May 2016. 

A Service of Thanksgiving will take place at Whitehouse Presbyterian Church on Wednesday 3rd January at 10.00am. 

Ulster Hockey would like to extend their deepest sympathies to Des Simon's family and entire family circle at this sad time.
