    I knew Alan for about 20 years. I would only
    deal with him to book my trips, he was so efficient.
    Alan was one of life’s gentlemen. He was a pleasure
    to do business with. My wife and I would have travelled
    all over the world with Sadlier Travel. I am deeply sorry
    to hear of his passing. My thoughts are with his wife and
    family. May he rest in peace.

    Brian Kearney.
