A good friend. Always slagging. Worked with him and Dora in Fegans many moons ago. He had a GAA background from when he played with Rockcorry until his passing. We will all miss you Shane.

We want the family of Shane to know that we are thinking about them in their time of great sadness. Back in the sixties only for good old Shane we would have never got to the carnivals or the hall in Granard. May his jolly soul rest peacefully
