CEO Colin Neill Comments on Service Celebrating Life of William Hastings

05 January 2018

Colin Neill, Chief Executive of Hospitality Ulster, has commented on today’s service to celebrate the life of Sir William (Billy) Hastings.

“Whilst today we mark the loss of Sir William Hastings, it is very fitting that the service in St. Anne’s Cathedral was also a celebration of his life.

“Known to all in the industry simply as, Billy, he was not just a successful and hardworking businessman but also a true gentleman who always had time and a kind word for everyone.

“Often in Irish mythology we talk about legends, but I am privileged to say I actually knew one, who, through his professional and personal life has left a legacy for generations to come.”
