He also enjoyed the occasional race meeting. Four of his sons Fergus John Tommie and Phelim (RIP) were prominent players on the gaelic football field. Predeceased by his wife Peggy ten years ago this month and also by his daughter in law Paula who also passed to her eternal reward in the same month while his son Phelim passed away in January 2007.
