The Dealer was saddened to hear of the passing of John Fitzgerald, from Ross, Kilmeaden.

The Waterford farmer served on the Glanbia board, and was elected vice chair of Glanbia co-op and plc in 2008.

He was chair of Waterford IFA from 2013 to 2017. He also held positions in the Waterford Farm Relief Services and in local community organisations, including Macra, the GAA, and was also a successful greyhound breeder.

Unfailingly good-natured and courteous, our sympathies go to his wife, Nano family and friends.
