Sadness at death of highly-respected Mountmellick man Ger O’Mahony

There is sadness in Mountmellick this week with the passing of Ger O’Mahony, a highly-respected man who made a huge contribution over his life to his town and community.

Aged in his mid 70s, Ger owned a butcher’s shop in the town for many years before later becoming a supervisor with Laois County Council.

He was closely associated with Mountmellick GAA club, as both a hurler and footballer, and after his playing days finished he got heavily involved off the pitch in a variety of roles.

As well as that Ger was a keen golfer and a member of the Portarlington club.

Ger is survived by his wife Brid, daughters Sinead, Geraldine and Finola, sons Donie, Ciaran and Donnachadh and his 17 grandchildren.

He is also mourned by sons-in-law, daughters-in-law, brothers and sisters John, Ciss, Teresa, Mary, Patrick and Anne and a wide circle of family and friends.

Ger is reposing this Wednesday evening in Moloney’s Funeral Home in Mountmellick from 6pm with recital of the rosary at 8.30pm.

Requiem mass on Thursday at 11am in St Joseph’s Church in Mountmellick with burial after in St Joseph’s cemetery. Family flowers only. Donations if required to the Irish Cancer Society.
