  18. Dearest Maura, Gary and Joanne, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of our lovely Francis. He was such lovely man with a beautiful soul. I’ll never forget the first time I met him in a bar in Sligo, I was a little nervous meeting the man that everyone thought was a legend, but he was like a big teddy bear and made me feel so welcome. I have the biggest and fondest memory of him, from the trip to Killybegs, the giggles in the many bars we went to, him spinning me around the dance floor at Hugh’s wedding, and so many other amazing memories. But my most favourite memory of Francis will always be sitting in your dining room playing catchy catchy, and his mischievous little grin when he caught any of us out!!

    Heaven has gained an amazing character.

    Sending love and hugs to the whole family.

    Love always Deb 💔😭
