Death of builder PJ McMa­hon

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

THE death has taken place of well-known Wex­ford builder provider PJ McMa­hon.

Mr McMa­hon, from Ard Aoib­hinn, Ross­lare Strand, died on Sun­day.

He was 79 and had been re­tired from his Trin­ity Street busi­ness for some years.

He was born in Clare and moved to Wex­ford with his wife Moira and six chil­dren in 1970, ini­tially work­ing as the man­ager in McCor­mack’s Builders’ Providers be­fore open­ing his own busi­ness.

De­scribed as both a proud Wex­ford man and a proud Clare man, PJ was a pas­sion­ate golfer and was cap­tain at Wex­ford Golf Club and a prom­i­nent mem­ber of the Ross­lare Golf Club.

‘Golf was his pas­sion along with his fam­ily,’ said PJ’s young­ster daugh­ter Cather­ine.

He worked for many years with St Vin­cent de Paul.

The beloved hus­band of the late Moira and lov­ing fa­ther of Eu­gene, Anne, Kevin, Deirdre, Ea­mon, and Cather­ine; brother of Joe, Jim, Michael, Ber­nadette, Vera, An­gela, Kath­leen, Mar­garet and the late Eu­gene, he is sadly missed by his fam­ily, sons in law, daugh­ters in law, brothers in law, grand­chil­dren, neph­ews, nieces, rel­a­tives and friends.

PJ’s fu­neral mass will take place at 12 noon to­mor­row (Wed­nes­day) at St Brigid’s Church, Ross­lare Strand, fol­lowed by burial in The New Ceme­tery Tagoat.
