Aidan Howley Obituary, Death- The sudden death of Aidan Howley, a resident of Curradrish, Foxford, County Mayo, has left the President, Club Officers, and Members of Sligo Rugby in mourning. Aidan’s untimely death last week as a result of a terrible accident has left a void in the hearts of those who had the privilege of knowing him. Aidan was so much more than a neighbor; he was a model of kindness, generosity, and fair play in every facet of his life. His absence will be keenly felt.
He was revered by his fellow Sligo Rugby players for his undying devotion to the game and his positive attitude on and off the pitch. Our thoughts and prayers are with Aidan’s loved ones at this time of great sorrow; they are the ones who must bear the brunt of this tragedy. Our hearts go out to his sister Siobhán, her husband Ken, and their three lovely children, Oisn, Cillian, and Rory O’Neill, who have lost their brother. A void has been left in our lives by Aidan’s passing, and we send our condolences to the Howley and O’Neill families during this difficult time.
Aidan’s dedication to Sligo Rugby will be remembered with the utmost respect. Nothing ever changes like this. Everyone who had the privilege of playing on the same team as him will always look up to him as an example of what it means to be fully dedicated to a sport and to a group of teammates because of his uncompromising dedication to both. Aidan was a joy to watch and play with because of his positive attitude, team spirit, and ability to make everyone around him laugh.
The process of saying goodbye to Aidan has brought home to us the fragility of life and the importance of cherishing every minute with the people we care about. May we remember his memory by carrying on his devotion to the virtues of friendship and sportsmanship, which he exemplified so wonderfully in his life. May you rest in peace, Aidan Howley. Even though you won’t be there to share laughs and stories with your friends anymore, those of us who were lucky enough to call you a friend will never forget you.
