It is with regret and a heavy heart that we bring you the sad news of the passing of Robert “Bob” Fizzell. Bob has been a member and a patron of the IPA for many years. He was also a strong supporter in other ways by championing the cause of the Irish Palatine Association. He participated in many of our events and visited the Rathkeale area on a number of other occasions. His support of the IPA was very much appreciated by us all. Our condolences to his wife Marge and family.
