Dear Celt,

Sad heartened we have to inform you that one of the most dearly beloved and longest serving Celts Kevin McLaughlin passed away yesterday. Having been part of Vienna Celtic RFC since the founding year, our club wouldn’t have been the same without Kevin. He has been a vital part of our foundations and culture, on and off the field.

All generations of Vienna Celtic have the dearest memories of him. He inspired many young and old Celts and always acted like a real gentleman. Sharing the pitch, sharing stories and sharing pints with him has meant the world to us. Our sincere condolences go to his family and his friends! Kev you will be never fogotten!
