So sad to hear of David's passing. We were classmates at St.Muredach's in the 1950s. I was lucky to meet him and his wife Mary at a Mass celebrated by our classmate Fr. Martin Keveny in 2015. He was wonderful personality, always ready with a witty comment. Our deepest condolences to Mary and all his Family.

Lovely to see such lovely tributes and fond memories of Dave on here. Never met the man but have wonderful fond memories of his pride and joy Catherine from our time in Kerry so if he was, as suggested, as nice a person as his daughter. I’d say he was a true gentleman. Sincere sympathy to Mary, Catherine and Brendan. RIP Dave

My sympathy to Mary and family on the passing of Dave. I remember Dave as a young fellow when he came to Castlebar, a love young chap. I remember Mary visiting her aunt, Mrs. Rattigan, Spencer Street, a cute little girl. My sister Phil worked with Mary's aunt Delia, a dressmaker in Castle Street, happy days. Look after yourselves.
