It was with great sadness that I learnt of the death of Sean Mc Menamin a prominent and valued member of our site after a battle with illness.
Sean (ae86_lad as he was known to most on here) was a member of AE86irl since 2007 and was one of the most honest, up front and passionate guys you were likely to meet. His contributions on here were always helpful and Sean could always be relied on to be quick witted!
His illness was not known to many on the site and it is only now that we can look back and realise the courage he must have shown through this difficult time. I know he did mention to me that cars and AE86’s were a welcome distraction for him during treatment and I’m glad that we as a group were able to help in some small way with that.
The last memory many of us will have is of Sean enjoying drifting his car at a trackday in Aghadowey just a few months ago and I think its a nice way to remember a friend who was a total AE86 fanatic.
On behalf of AE86irl.com and all it’s members I would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Sean’s family and friends (many of whom who are also members.)
Here’s hoping there are lots of Nangkangs for you to burn up there….
