East Border Region Committee

Death of former Councillor John Hanna, East Border Region:


The Secretariat General of AEBR would like to express our deepest sympathies to the Hanna family and the Members and staff of the East Border Region at the sudden death of former Councillor John Hanna.

John Hanna was a member of our very active member organization in Ireland East Border Region since 1998 until earlier this year and was a former Chairman of the Organisation. He was particularly committed to his cross-community and cross-border work.

The former Councillor of Banbridge retired from the council earlier this year after 22 years of public service and two years ago he also retired from a varied successful business career in which he worked in several fields and for well-known companies.

John Hanna was very appreciated by AEBR members and friends, leading Irish delegations to AEBR events in many occasions and welcoming the CBC family in his mother land several times, being particularly in the memory of all of us the events of our Annual Conference and General Assembly in Dundalk and Newry in October 2010.

We’ll never forget you!
