Michael Was a Great Friend to All

E-mail Print PDF

With the passing of Michael Walsh, the area lost a good friend and a conscientious worker. The loyalty he always displayed in his work was a trait that remained with him all his life.

As a young man he was a more than useful footballer until a knee injury curtailed his promising career. Animals were Michael’s sporting interest in life. He was an enthusiastic member of the local gun club and he also had a keen interest in horses and horse racing.

As Michael’s remains were carried into St. Michael’s church, they passed through a guard of honour made up of his many friends in both GAA and the local gun club. On his marriage to his wife Teresa, Michael moved to their new home on Carrick Road. Soon Michael became known as a school bus driver in conjunction with his father-in-law Dinny Kelly.

As always, Michael was most reliable in his new career and remained so until his retirement after more than 30 years.

Speaking at his funeral Mass Fr. McGrath PP, spoke of the quiet and ever reliable Michael that many of us had known all our lives and that others had come to know over the years. Michael was interred in St Michael’s Cemetery, Killaghy, again in the presence of a large congregation.

To Michael’s wife Teresa and to the members of both the Walsh and Kelly families, we extend our sympathy. May the soul of Michael Walsh rest in peace. His month’s mind Mass will take place in St Michael’s church on Saturday night next, September 13th at 8pm.

"And I wouldn't much care for Sierra Leone, If I hadn't seen Killenaule
And the man that was never in Mullinahone,
Shouldn't say he had travelled at all."
