We are saddened to hear of the passing of Ray Billington. Some members will recall that he captained the Wild Geese for the seasons 1961/62 and 1962/63. Ray Died in Blackrock Co Dublin Tuesday 23rd August 2016. We send our condolences to his family.
More details in the notice in the Irish Times.

Ray was captain of the Geese when I joined the club and besides being a natural leader he was very welcoming and well respected. He got on with everyone except Brian Mathews. ( but that is a different story and involves Fitz’s rosary beads).
It is strange that a sad event can bring back happy memories of days gone by; and there are many of them. Thanks, Ray, it was good knowing you
