Tom MacDonald. Tom Sadly passed away yesterday on 25th September.
He was a colourful character who could be seen everyday in and around Clonroche Village chatting and debateing about politics and history and anything else that had grabbed his attention.
He will be missed by his family and many friends. Many stories of Tom and his interactions with people far and near will be told around firesides and local establishments for many a year to come.
A member of Clonroche Historical Society and former President of Clonroche Comhaltas and past member of Cloughbawn GAA. Tom enjoyed it all and took on all roles with his usual enthusiasm.
Below is a link to a video of Tom in full flight receiting two poems in Coolaught Gardens in 2013.
May he Rest in Peace.
