April 10, 2020Oswald (Ossie) Browne RIP 1943 – 2020
Patrick Lennon Associates has learned with regret of the death of its former client, Oswald Browne after a long illness.
Ossie Browne as he was popularly known around London Irish RFC and the Irish business community in London, was a financial adviser to players, staff and supporters especially in the years after rugby went professional.
Originally from Oughterard, County Galway, Ossie worked with another of the Club’s great supporters, Noel McGinn, in his financial services practice in Twickenham before striking out on his own in the 1980s. He built a successful independent business and bought a property in Ayrshire in Scotland which he turned into a four star boutique hotel.
The consultancy provided marketing and communications services to the hotel for three years before and after its opening.
A consistent, low handicap golfer, Ossie was a member of Richmond Golf Club for 38 years.
Unfortunately, ill health impacted on him in recent years and he relied on friends for company and support. He passed away in his sleep on Wednesday 8th April.
The consultancy extends its sympathy to his family and friends both in this country and Ireland.
