Michael Burke

THE death oc­curred on Novem­ber 29 at his res­i­dence 9 Ballinwillin Close, Mitchelstown, of Michael Burke.

The late Michael, in his mid-60s, was a native of Davis Street, Tip­per­ary town.

He was a re­tired mem­ber of the Gar­daí Síochana hav­ing been in Mitchelstown for the past 40 years. Prior to be­ing sta­tioned in Mitchelstown the late Michael served in En­field, Bal­ly­desmond, Kan­turk and Ban­don. He was very well known and re­spected, be­ing a great fam­ily and re­li­gious man.

His pop­u­lar­ity was borne out in the large and rep­re­sented at­ten­dance that were present on Satur­day when his funeral ar­rived at Mitchelstown Par­ish Church.

There was also a large at­ten­dance at the Re­quiem Mass and burial on Sun­day. There was a guard of hon­our by mem­bers of the Gar­dai, serv­ing and re­tired, as the cof­fin made its way to its fi­nal rest­ing place in Brigown New Ceme­tery.

To his wife, Anne; son, Paul; daugh­ter, Michelle; Paul’s fi­ancé, Anna; and the Bartkowska fam­ily; brother-in-law; sis­ters-in-law; rel­a­tives; neigh­bours; and friends, we ten­der our sin­cere sym­pa­thy.
