Oisin was an excellent business man and friend to all who knew him. He was a very hard working, entrepreneurial, witty and intelligent man who was completing his final year in an MBA in Michael Smurfit Business School at the time of his untimely death.
He was very liked among the business community in Galway. He spent many happy years in Salthill with his loving wife Caroline Allman Reynolds.
He is predeceased by his father Dermot and more recently his sister Maureen from Moycullen, who died of cancer only a short three months ago.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his mother, Teresa Allman from Frenchpark, Co. Roscommon, his wife Caroline, all the Reynolds family from Roosky, Co. Roscommon, and his niece Sinead Allman Grant from Moycullen, who is a garda in Clifden and her family.
