  9. Christy was such a vibrant lively active man, prominent in Sligo Gospel Choir and in acting and in charities.
    He was kind and friendly and tolerant, deeply Christian. It is a shock that a man so vibrant is no longer with us.
    I knew him since my ex husband played Jesus in the Cathedral Passion Play early 1990s, about 30 years. Christy had a way of treating people like they were family. I felt related. His loss to Sligo is that of a loved one gone, Sligo will miss him. I miss him.
    Sincere condolences to his family.

  10. Sincere Sympathy to Foy family
