In behalf of the Belgian Project and his followers, our sincere condolences to her close family, friends and club members of Sarah, a cruel blow to our beloved sport…Rest in Peace Sarah

Sarah’s Triathlon club Setanta told social media yesterday: It is with profound sorrow and shock that we have to announce the passing of our friend and club mate Sarah Fagan. Sarah was competing in the Alp D’Huez triathlon on Friday when she got into difficulty in the swim and was airlifted to hospital. She did not recover and sadly passed away on Saturday July 29th in Grenoble France.
Sarah was an integral member of Setanta Triathlon Club and was always first to volunteer her time, get involved in club activities and competitive events. Sarah stood out among her peers as she was always smiling, enthusiastic and willing to help others.
All her club mates are devastated at Sarah’s passing and our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a hanam dílis.

Members of Cuchulainn Cycling Club are beyond heartbroken on hearing of the passing of club member Sarah Fagan. Sarah was an active member of the club since early 2010 and was involved in all disciplines – leisure, racing – road. Sarah lived life to the full, she was passionate, she had such a positive attitude to life, and had such a huge circle of friends within the club. Sarah will leave us with a massive hole in our hearts. As evident in all pictures of her, she had such a glow and warmth to her, always smiling and was so encouraging with her kind words.
She was always welcoming to new members in the club.
Whilst everyone else was worried about their lack of fitness or not sticking religiously to their training plan, Sarah wouldn’t stress but would continue with her own training goal and plans and enjoy it.
Sincere Condolences to to her club member brother Austin, Sarah’s family and all her friends.
Sarah, we miss you already, we will remember you by your warm smile and encouraging words and your attitude to life.
As a mark of respect to Sarah there will be no organised club spins for the upcoming week.
Funeral arrangements to follow once confirmed.
