It is with regret we announce the death on Friday 18th November 2005 after a short illness of our former President Frank Lynch
Frank joined the Maritime Inscription in 1943, and was posted to Dublin Port Control.The name changed to An Slua Muiri in 1946, and Frank was commissioned to officer rank in 1955. Frank was a great rifleman and won the overall best individual shot on many an occasion. He took command of No. 2 Coy, An Slua Muiri in 1969 where he achieved the highest rank which can be attained in An Slua Muiri, Lt. Cdr., he stood down in 1983 with 40 years voluntary service. Outside of An Slua Muiri, Frank was a keen soccer player and referee. He probably gave as many years to football as he did to An Slua Muiri (now renamed Naval Service Reserve).
