Gordie Mahood 1973 – 2019

It is with great sadness that we report the untimely passing of Gordie Mahood on 5th February. Gordie was an enthusiastic orienteer, a loyal member of Lagan Valley Orienteers and a dedicated organiser. Many will have last seen him at Tyrella in November, quietly ensuring that everything was properly organised in a way that would bring the most satisfaction to his fellow orienteers. Gordie has been living with cancer for a number of years, but still managed to contribute greatly to the orienteering community. He was a regular attender last summer of the WEE series in Belfast, introducing his son Harry to the delights of the string course.

His funeral in St Macartin’s Cathedral in Enniskillen was packed with colleagues from all parts of his life including the orienteering world. Our deepest sympathies were passed to Julie his wife and Harry his son. We will miss him.
