Séamus McCluskey RIP
It is with a heavy heart that I record the death of Séamus McCluskey, Main Street, Emyvale, which occurred today, Thursday, July 25th 2019 at 5.15pm in Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda. Séamus has spent the last year and a half in Castleross Nursing Home, Carrickmacross. His wife Anita is also in Castleross. Last weekend he took seriously ill and was transferred to the hospital, where, despite every effort by the medical staff, he passed away peacefully. His body will rest in McMahon’s Funeral Parlour tomorrow, Friday, and again on Saturday until 5.00pm. His remains will then be brought to St. Patrick’s Church, Corracrin to arrive at 6.00pm. His funeral Mass will take place on Sunday morning at 11.00am with burial in the adjoining cemetery afterwards. Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam naofa. Séamus and I have worked together on many local projects over the years since 1956 and we were always thinking up a new project to benefit the area and its inhabitants. He loved Emyvale and produced a history of ‘Emyvale Sweet Emyvale’. However he will be well known for other interests as well and his passion for the GAA was unequalled. As Orielman in the Northern Standard and as commentator on Big M and Northern Sound radios or perhaps at County Board meetings his passion was there for all to see. But his life was varied and extensive and I intend to go into those different aspects later. The hours of his wake are: 6.00pm to 10.00pm Friday and 3.00pm till 5.00pm on Saturday.
For now I extend my sincere sympathies to Anita, to Majella, James, Alan, Amy and Elise; to Finian, Helen, Ruairi, Hugh and Deirdre; and to all his relatives and friends. Our picture above was taken while he was preparing his weekly column for the Northern Standard.
