Assisting Communities and Empowering individuals to succeed
The Brian Conlon Foundation.
The Brian Conlon Foundation was founded in April 2022 by Brian’s family to celebrate his life, promote his passions and continue his legacy.
The Foundation will contribute to charities, organisations, individuals and causes with the hope of making a positive impact and a difference in people’s lives.
Brian Gerard Conlon was born in Newry to Gerry and Josephine Conlon on the 7th January 1966. He was the oldest of four siblings, with one sister Kathy and two brothers Ronan and Ciaran.
Newry was his home and the border town made a deep impression on the life of the young Brian. Roots were important to him. He passionately believed that personal and professional success was rooted in a person’s background, family and community.
It’s something he never forgot.
