Junior Heffernan 1989-2013
It is with great sadness that I have to report the tragic death of one of our former Kelly pupils and Swim Squad members Junior Heffernan. Junior, age 23, a promising young International cyclist, died yesterday whilst leading the 41st staging of the annual Severn Bridge Road Race near Olveston. It is reported that Junior was hit by a car coming in the opposite direction during the 3rd lap of the race, which was immediately abandoned. Despite immediate attention, Junior died at the scene of the accident. Our thoughts and prayers are with his Mum and Dad and family and friends.
To those of you who did not know Junior, he was a young man with an extraordinary gift and capacity for hard work. Junior was extremely kind hearted and his willingness to be generous with both his time and support to others is a true testament to his wonderful character. His parents were a huge support and shared his love of performance sport. Junior’s time with us in the Swim Squad from 2004-2006 will always be remembered. He excelled at Kelly in both his academic studies and in the sport of Triathlon. He gained 9 A* grades at GCSE level and a year later competed at the Junior European Triathlon Championships. It was clear that Junior had a gift for cycling and went on to develop his interests and talent further. He was highly regarded in the cycling world and was quickly becoming a prospect for a professional contract.
We will remember forever, Junior's steely determination and his wonderful personality; so many things to be proud of and so much to be thankful for….but so sad a life full of opportunity cut short.
