Tributes paid following death of Laois Ladies Football sponsor

The late Mel McIntyre

Tributes have been paid to one of the sponsors of Laois Ladies Gaelic Football who passed away last week.

Mel McIntyre, a native of Maladhide and Walkinstown in Dublin, had ties to Laois through his wife Trish.

He came on board as one of the sponsors of the Laois ladies team in recent years.

Laois Ladies Football PRO Michael O’Loughlin said they were grateful to the late Mr McIntyre.

“Laois Ladies Football were very appreciative of his support and contribution over the last two years,” he said.

A great GAA lover, Mr McIntyre gave great service to his St Sylvester’s Club in Dublin, both as a coach and committee member.

Mel began his career in a testing role with Amdahl. Having quickly established himself as a strong problem solver with an ability to lead and direct technical teams, he rose to being Global Director of Quality and Senior Development Manager, a tribute from his company, OpenApp said.

Among his previous appointments, having firmly acquired knowledge and experience in analytics and quality, Mel was a Management Consultant with DMR Consulting (now Fijitsu) and Operations Director with Rise Technology.

He founded his own company, OpenApp in 2002. The company develops programmes, projects, applications and software primarily for the Healthcare market.

Mel is deeply regretted by his wife Trish, sons Bill, Hugh, Gerry and Paddy, Kina (Hugh’s partner), brothers and sisters Gerard, Aline, Ciaran, Lor, Carmel, Meabh and Frank, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nephews, nieces, uncles, aunts, colleagues in OpenApp, relatives, neighbours and friends.
