RIP Sir Anthony Hart

It is with great sadness that DUBC announces the passing of Sir Anthony Hart, an alumnus and wonderful supporter of the club.

Sir Anthony passed away this morning in hospital in London after becoming unwell at the weekend while at Henley Royal Regatta, where he was supporting Enniskillen Royal Boat Club. He helped their Junior Men’s Quad launch for the opening round of the Fawley Challenge Cup last Thursday morning.

Sir Anthony was a well known and respected High Court Judge in Northern Ireland who, more recently, had led The Historical Institutional Abuse Inquiry.

The Captain and Officers of the Boat Club extend their deepest sympathy to Sir Tony’s wife Lady Hart and all members of his family circle.
