The death has occurred of Michael Murphy, O’Herlihy’s Shop, 26 Main Street, Castleisland, Co. Kerry and late of Clara, Co. Offaly and The Bronx, New York.
December 17th 2017, peacefully at the Bon Secours Hospital, Tralee.
Beloved husband of the late Mary. Sadly missed by his loving family: Anne, Gerard, Michael, Brid, Catherine, Maurice and Noel, son-in-law, daughters-in-law, his adored 11 grandchildren, brother Vincent, brother-in-law, sisters-in-law, nieces, nephews, relatives, neighbours and friends.
May He Rest In Peace.
A great neighbour to Sheila Prendiville and Paul Reese over the years. Michael never went on his daily, evening time trip to the post office without checking if Sheila wanted anything posted.
His views, very much his own, were always a colourful addition to whatever debate was going on when he dropped in.
Always Mr. Murphy
He was always referred to as Mr. Murphy by the inmates of Sheila’s and addressed as such in our best New York accents – an occasion which was always a prelude to a period of high amusement with him as conductor.
A keen bridge player and a member of the Castleisland club, Mr. Murphy was also an American ex-serviceman.
He was a flag-bearer at the commemoration by the American Legion in Ireland at Knockane Cemetery in Knocknagoshel in November 2009. Ten of his fellow American ex-servicemen are buried in the cemetery and the occasion got the full attention of the legion on the day.
May God be good to him.
Reposing at Tangney’s Funeral Home, Castleisland on Monday evening from 5pm to 7pm followed by removal to Castleisland Parish Church. Requiem Mass on Tuesday at 11am followed by Private Cremation.
