WEXFORD was shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Conor Ruttledge from The Faythe on Sunday following a hard fought battle with illness. A son of Kenny and Suzanne Ruttledge and brother of Ryan, Conor was aged in his 20s.

A former student at the CBS Secondary School, Conor completed the Leaving Cert in 2016. A popular character, he was involved with a number of local sports clubs including Wexford Albion, for whom he lined out at all levels up to U16, and Wexford Bohs.

Tributes poured in on social media yesterday as the community rallied around Conor’s heartbroken parents, brother and extended family including grandparents Ronnie and Margaret Ruttledge and John and Mai Flynn. 

Conor’s removal will take place from his home to the Church of the Assumption Bride Street tomorrow (Wednesday) morning for 10 a.m. funeral mass. Attendance is still limited to 50% due to Covid guidelines, but the mass will be streamed on the parish website for those unable to attend. Burial will take place afterwards at St Ibar’s Cemetery, Crosstown. May he rest in peace.
