Thomas came from a large family of nine brothers and two sisters.

Thomas had a triple bypass done almost 20 years ago gave him a new lease of LIFE- he went for daily walks and took great care of himself - he would often be seen on a walk pushing one of his grandchildren or picking one of them up from school.

He enjoyed painting and decorating for his children over the years and took great pride in his work, he also enjoyed going on holidays with his children and grandchildren.

He will be sorely missed by his wife of 47 years Claire, son Andrew, daughters Karen and Kelly, daughter in law Fiona and son in law Barry and grandchildren Mark, Emma, Ryan and Megan. Brothers Brendan, Donald, Eamonn, David and Dermot and sisters Eilish and Tricia, brothers and sisters in law, extended family and friends.

Reading's were by his grandson Mark and son in law Barry.

Prayers of the faithful were read by his grandchildren Ryan and Emma, brother David and nephew Darren.

The family would like to thank the staff of both the Heart Failure Clinic and Critical Care Unit in Drogheda for all their care of Thomas over the years.
