Adare Manor has paid tribute to its former chief executive officer, Colm Hannon, whose death has taken place.

Colm, a native of Ballyglass, spent 26 years working with the McManus family, and held the post of CEO at Adare Manor from 2015 until his retirement in April 2022.

A tribute issued today by Adare Manor stated: “He oversaw many significant developments and innovations at Adare Manor, such as the detailed renovation and restoration of the resort in 2016 and the hotel’s successful bid to host the Ryder Cup in 2027.


“His exceptional leadership and distinguished service were instrumental to the successful redevelopment of Adare Manor, and our position as a world-leading resort.

“The entire Adare Manor team are incredibly proud of his outstanding contribution to the hotel and our wider community, and we are eternally grateful for his legacy of excellence.

“We extend our deepest sympathies to Colm’s wife Sue, and their children Conor, Shane and Ciara, his parents John and Mary, siblings John and Caroline, parents-in-law Les and Vera, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, and nephews.

“Our thoughts are with them and with Colm’s wider group of family and friends.”

Before his role at Adare Manor, Mr Hannon was general manager for the Sandy Lane resort in Barbados and resident manager for Cambridge Beaches in Bermuda. He also previously held the role of chief executive at Luttrellstown Castle in Dublin.

His funeral will take place at Mary Immaculate Church, Shannon, on Monday at 12pm, followed by private cremation.

The thoughts and prayers of all at Irish Golfer are with Colm’s family and friends. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam
