Denis Lynn, boss of renowned Downpatrick-based Finnebrogue, died in an accident on Sunday, May 2.
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Denis Lynn.
Our thoughts are with Denis’s wife Christine, his children Kerry, Clare, Tara and Ciara and the entire family at this incredibly difficult time.
Denis was an innovator and a visionary with an infectious passion for delivering positive change for the planet and its people. He leaves behind an extraordinary list of achievements.
Denis also leaves behind Finnebrogue and a vision for its future. Finnebrogue was his creation. It now falls on all of us – the Finnebrogue family – to continue his outstanding work.
The board of directors has met today. Non-executive director David Manning has been appointed interim-Chairman with immediate effect. Non-executive director Colin Walsh has been appointed interim deputy-chairman.
The senior management team will lead the business on a day-to-day basis.
We have set up an email account, RememberingDenis@finnebrogue.com, for you to send your memories and condolences, which we will compile and publish in due course.
Denis was our founder, leader and inspiration. We will best honour his memory by invoking his passion for making food the best it can possibly be, without being bound by the way it’s always been done – and by trying every day to make the world a better place.
