Claire Walsh has passed away after a long illness. She was always a pleasant but quiet presence at orienteering events she attended, modestly keeping her Olympic achievements to herself.
There's a lovely tribute from another sprinter John Molloy on imra.ie - https://www.imra.ie/forum/topic/id/6454
Claire was also the sister of Jean O'Neill and mother-in-law to Aonghus O'Cleirigh.
Condolences to them and all her family and friends.
