An Appreciation – Liam O’Shea R.I.P. (1950-2014) Shamrock Lawn

Liam O'Shea r.i.p.

It was with much sadness the parish learned of Liam’s untimely death, following an accident; he died in the presence of his loving family. There was a huge attendance at his removal and Requiem Mass – a testament to the loving husband, dad, granddad, brother, uncle, caring neighbour and friend.

Liam worked tirelessly for his family but also made time to be involved in his local church. He had a deep love for God and for his faith, which he shared with his wife Cathy. He was a Minister of the Word, reading at both weekend and weekday Masses, and could always be relied on to cover for another reader when called upon. During Fr Galvin’s term of ministry in the parish Liam supported him in giving pre-marriage courses. He was a member of our first parish assembly (2007 – 2010) and gave his heart and his talents to ensure its success. He was a member of the RCIA ((The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) – a role he took very seriously indeed – attending weekly meetings and supporting and journeying with the newly baptized Catholics.  Liam’s love of the Blessed Sacrament was evident in his daily attendance at Mass and his great devotion to the weekly Friday Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Together with this wife Cathy (Kathleen) they assisted other parishes in setting up this very beautiful act of love and devotion.

Liam, you are sadly and dearly missed. May you enjoy everlasting peace and perfect rest with our heavenly Father in the company of your own deceased loved ones.

We extend our sincere sympathy to his widow Cathy (Kathleen), his daughter Sandra, sons, Paul, Gavin, Kenneth and Barry, grandchildren, brothers, sister, extended family, and his many close friends.
