Brendan de hOra EI3GV has passed away recently. He was an extremely active member of South Dublin Radio Club and took a leading part in the club contests and various other activities. Brendan was a very active DXer with more than 300 DXCC entities confirmed, and also participated in a number of DXpeditions.
He had many other interests including hill walking and he was one of the founding members of The Irish Ramblers’ Club in 1964. Down through the years used his hillwalking experience to entice some South Dublin Radio Club members to join him on a number of mountain activation events including Lugnaquila and Galtee Mór.
Brendan was also an active Worked All Ireland operator, searching out rare squares in the hills. Pre-deceased by his wife, Betty, and by one of his sons, he is survived by his daughter and two of his sons.
May he rest in peace.
