John Glynn RIP

John Glynn, Aisling Return to Ireland

It was with deep sadness that we learnt of the death of John Glynn on Saturday, 20 August, writes Kairos director Mossie Lyons. John’s friendship with Kairos extended back over the 30 years of the charity’s work with homeless people suffering from addiction.

There are people who owe their life to John’s care, support and love. Co-founder of the Aisling Return to Ireland trip 28 years ago, John organised a ‘dry trip’ for Kairos residents each year. Many reconnected with family, friends and places of their youth on these trips. Through his work with Brent Community Alcohol Service (BCAS) and the London Irish Centre there are people who continue to thrive and enjoy life. Rest in peace, John, and our condolences to your wife, Kay, and family.
