Statement from Adare Manor on the passing of former CEO, Colm Hannon
It is with profound sadness that we learned of the passing of our former CEO, Colm Hannon, on Wednesday 30th November.
Colm, a native of Ballyglass, Co. Mayo, 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. 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 would like to 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.
