Liam Maher RIP

Liam Maher RIP

We are all saddened to hear of the passing of our dear friend Liam Maher (husband of Kathleen).    Those of us who had the pleasure to know Liam will remember with eternal gratitude his genuine obliging, helpful and kind nature.  If Liam promised to do something – it would be done and if it involved one of the passions in his life (Family, Irish Music, Irish Dancing or Hurling) it would be done in ‘double-jig’ time.  May He Rest in Peace.  We extend our heartfelt sympathies to Kathleen, Linda, Shane and his extended family and wide circle friends.

Family flowers only, please, donations in lieu, if desired, to S.H.O.U.T c/o Seamus Feehily and Son Funeral Directors, Pearse Road, Sligo.
