Ronnie Lamont Obituary, Death – This morning, early in the morning, Ronnie Lamont, who was one of the most successful and inspirational players in the history of the Instonians Rugby Club, died away peacefully while sleeping. The club is in a state of profound mourning as a result of hearing the news of his passing. Ronnie was called up to the Irish national team thirteen times between the years 1965 and 1970, earning a total of thirteen caps.
While playing the number eight position, he earned seven of those caps, and while playing the flanker position, he earned six of those caps. It was due to his efforts that Ireland scored one of their tries. In 1966, the British Lions went on tour to New Zealand and Australia, and Ronnie also played for the British Lions during this time. He was a member of the British Lions team that competed against New Zealand and took part in all four of their matches, during which he scored one try.
Because he was recognized as one of the best players of the 1967 season in the New Zealand Rugby Almanac, he was qualified to receive the award. We at Instonians RFC would like to express our deepest condolences to Ronnie’s family and those who were particularly close to him on the passing of Ronnie.
