THE Association of Irish Riding Clubs (AIRC) was greatly saddened to learn of the passing of Lawrence Smyth on Saturday, June 12.
Lawrence was a member and chair of Donegal Gaeltacht Riding Club was also a member of the Board of Directors, the National Committee and a great friend of the Association.
Lawrence was often seen at many events up and down the country with his horse, ‘Jenny’s Jigsaw’. He is photographed winning the Advanced Primary Championship at the AIRC National Show Jumping Championships in 2014.
Lawrence was named Person of the Year in 2008, while he also won Club Member of the Year in 2014.
Thoughts are with his wife Rosaleen and all of his friends in Donegal Gaeltacht Riding Club.
May he rest in peace.
