The death has occurred of Tommy Joe Horan, (75) of 20 Tralee Road, Castleisland, Co Kerry. November 25th 2016, suddenly.
Beloved husband of Maura (O’Donoghue) and dearly loved father of: Mary, Paddy, Niamh, Tomas and Michael.
Sadly missed by his loving wife and family, sons-in-law Diarmuid O’Sullivan, Killorglin and Mark Williams, Killarney. Daughters-in-law Jane, Geraldine and Alexsandra, his adored 12 grandchildren, brother Hugo, sister Joan, all extended family, relatives, neighbours and many friends. R.I.P.
The late Tommy Joe Horan was one of the Horan’s Mills business on a very industrious Tralee Road a generation ago. The business was started by his parents, Tom and Mamie Horan and run later by Tommy and his older brother James RIP.
Whether you had a farm or a cottage acre, Horan’s was the place to get your ton of ration for your cattle or pigs or a stone of crushed oats for your few hens.
They also did a big business in coal and slack and ran a very busy petrol and diesel service – which Eddie Boyle manned for over two decades.
The mill stood where the new Garda Station is now built on a so completely different Tralee Road.
I remember Tommy Joe’s and his lorry leaving the mill with loads of well clamped, jute bags of feed stuff in the mornings as we went to school and the train shunting away in the station just outside the back wall of the mill. May God be good to him.
Reposing at his residence on Sunday evening from 3pm to 8pm. Funeral arriving to Castleisland Parish Church on Monday for Requiem Mass at 1pm. Burial afterwards in Aghadoe Lawn Cemetery, Killarney. May He Rest In Peace.
