David had great love for the out­doors

Bray People - - Presentation College Bray Debs Ball -

THE DEATH occurred re­cently of David McCul­loch in the Black­rock Hospice. He had been ill for some weeks.

David, son of Meta and John McCul­loch, lived a great part of his life in Bray mov­ing firstly to Ra­heny when he got mar­ried and then to Monkstown.

He was ed­u­cated at Ravenswell and Cloney­hurke, Co. Of­faly, where he spent part of his child­hood, fol­lowed by St. Cronin’s B.S. and C.B. S. Monkstown.

Af­ter leav­ing school he went on to be­come a char­tered quan­tity sur­veyor and worked in Dublin Cor­po­ra­tion un­til his re­tire­ment some years ago.

He was an avid stamp col­lec- tor, a mem­ber of the Mil­i­tary His­tory So­ci­ety and a great whist player.

He was also very mu­si­cal and loved Ir­ish mu­sic, es­pe­cially Percy French. He was known to give a bar or two of ‘Are You Right There Michael,’ on oc­ca­sion.

He liked to walk the Prom­e­nade and Cliff Walk in Bray as he al­ways had a great love of the out­doors.

His fu­neral Mass was in St. Pa­trick’s Church in Monkstown and from there to the cre­ma­to­rium in Glas­nevin. He is sur­vived by his widow Una, and his sis­ters Anne McCul­loch and Mau­reen Master­son.

Rest now from your labours. In io­th­lann De go gcas­tar sinn.

The late David McCul­loch.
