Rest in peace, Sebi

With heavy and pierced hearts we inform you of the death of our member and friend, Sebastian ‘Sebi’ Riessbeck, who sadly passed away last Sunday.

A skillful and fearless warrior on the pitch, and a gentle and kind man off it, Sebi represented everything great about hurling and about the GAA, a great GAA man. He was involved with Hamburg GAA since its foundation and performed the role of Registrar and ‘chief driver’ with a smile on his face and a passion for doing the right thing. We will remember our friend for his wit and immense kindness.

In his honour, the club #17 jersey, Sebi’s number, will be retired.

As Sebi’s family, friends, and team-mates, we all stand together at this difficult time.

Rest in Peace.
Ruhe in Frieden.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.

Sebastian Riessbeck
1984 – 2016

Unser Bruder, unser Mitspieler, unser Freund.
