RIP Rory Thompson

Rory Thompson

It was with shock and profound sadness that members of Cliftonville Academy received the news of the unexpected passing of Rory Thompson earlier this week following a heart attack.  He was 35 years old.

Rory had featured regularly for CACC with his brother Shane during the 2018 season, having represented both pre-merger clubs in previous years, as well as Carrickfergus CC. Rory’s competitive spirit and relentless enthusiasm will be sorely missed by his many friends and teammates at the club.

All at CACC extend their deepest sympathies to his wife Karen and son Reuben, as well as the wider family circle. A funeral service will be held in St. Cedma’s Church of Ireland, Larne, at 11am on Saturday 2nd February.
