The death took place in Sydney Australia on December 29th of James O’Mahony, late of East Camp, Castleisland. James, (11-2-1940 – 29-12-2015) is sadly missed by his daughter Zoe, his sons Fintan and Gerard, spouses and grandchildren.
He was son of the late Mai and Martin O’Mahony and was educated at: Castleisland Convent Primary and Boys’ Primary School; Castleisland Secondary School; Rockwell College and at UCD.
He emigrated to Australia in 1963 and returned to Ireland many times over the years. His son Brendan died in a tragic accident in 2010 and his sister Eileen (Mc Carthy) passed away in Sydney in 2003.
James was a larger than life person and was blessed with a very positive outlook on life and all it entailed and he achieved many goals in his lifetime.
However, failing health was a struggle in these last couple of years and he was eventually taken during Christmas.
