VRWC Life Member - Frank Byrne


Unfortunately there is little information available on Frank Byrne apart from the fact that he was Club President in the period from 1929 – 1931.

In fact, Frank McGuire recently showed me a trophy that he won in 1931, during his first year as a club member. The trophy is engraved

Byrne Trophy
Season 1931
Most Improved Member
F. M. McGuire

So Frank was obviously a keen supporter of the club during those early days and contributed one or more trophies as well as fulfilling his duties as club President.

Frank was granted life membership in 1931
