Mr Denis Lynn

We are deeply saddened to learn of the sudden death of Denis Lynn, founder and Chairman of Finnebrogue. Denis was an exceptional entrepreneur, a true innovator, and a man of great vision and energy. A strong and very active supporter of NIFDA, Denis was committed to realising the potential of the food and drink industry in Northern Ireland.
Denis had a real passion for the planet and was at the forefront in demonstrating how food and drink companies can lead the way in enhancing environmental sustainability. Indeed, his commitment to making the world a better place extended beyond his considerable achievements in business. His charity work, championing of his local community and personal kindness provide inspiration to us all.
Denis will be sorely missed by his colleagues at Finnebrogue and right across the food industry and wider business community in Northern Ireland. His contribution to Northern Ireland was immense, and his legacy will leave a significant and lasting imprint for years to come.
Our thoughts are with Denis’ wife Christine, his children Kerry, Clare, Tara and Ciara and the wider family circle at this very difficult time.
Nick Whelan, Chair, Northern Ireland Food and Drink Association
