It is with great sadness that we inform you of the passing of our Co-Founder and President Michael Greene. Michael passed away peacefully, on Monday 17th October, with his beloved wife Marie by his side.

Together with Marie, Michael founded CRY Ireland in 2002 following the death of their son Peter in 1996 to Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD), aged just 15. He would go on to dedicate the remainder of his life to the charity, serving as our Chairman for 18 years.

Led and inspired by Michael, CRY Ireland has, over the past two decades, shone a light on the devastating impact of SCD in young people, driving awareness of the need for accessible screening, advice, support and a listening ear; as well as supporting the development of critical research into cardiac risk in the young. Among the many highlights of his CRY Ireland journey was the official opening of our specialist CRYP Centre on the 10th of November 2008.

Michael’s legacy will continue to be felt for many years not only by his colleagues and friends at CRY Ireland, but by the hundreds of families CRY has supported, and will continue to support, at the most difficult time of their lives.

We will be forever grateful for his leadership, wisdom, kindness and compassion. We trust you will join us in remembering his wife Marie, sons Kenneth and David, his daughter Julie, and their wider family circle at this very sad time.

When Jonathan Ireland and Kevin Fegan set up The Concentio Chamber Choir at Queen’s University Belfast in 2005, the friends could have never predicted that just five short years later, Kevin would lose his life to Sudden Cardiac Death at the age of 24.

Now Director of the Choir and a Trustee of CRY Ireland, Jonathan is using his musical talent to honour his late friend and shine some light on SCD with the release of Stand By Me.

The song was picked because it essentially describes what we do – stand by families in their darkest hour. Due to the pandemic, this was recorded virtually in the singers own homes – 30 singers based all around Europe – many of whom were close friends of Kevin.

Huge thanks to Jonathan and the Concentio Chamber Choir.
