The death has occurred of Tom Doyle, Coolnaleen, Camolin, who was a well-known businessman and sponsor of Wexford GAA championship games. Condolences to his family and friends on their sad loss at this time.
Tom Doyle was involved in the tile business for more than 40 years and developed the business (with his son and fellow director Patrick) into one of the best known in the country trading as Halo Tiles and Bathroom with modern showrooms at Main Street, Camolin. He gave employment to many local people and was regarded as a generous and progressive businessman.
He was steeped in Wexford GAA tradition. He was Chairman of Club Wexford when he signed a sponsorship deal with Wexford GAA County Board to sponsor the Tom Doyle Supplies Wexford Senior Football Championship for the first time in 2013.
His sponsorship of the senior football championship is just another of his many involvements in Wexford GAA. He was involved in the Wexford Supporters Club and helped raise much needed funds for the organisation over many years.
Deepest sympathy is extended. Beloved husband of the late Sheila, father of Anna, Patrick, and Elizabeth, brother of Larry, Peter, Ann, Mary, Patricia, and the late Sean. Deeply regretted by his loving son, daughters, brothers, sisters, daughter-in-law, Avril, sons-in-law; Fergus and Barrie, grandchildren; Peadar, James, Kate, Síle, Tom, Sean, Cáit, Ellen, Patrick, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends. RIP.
