THE LATE PHILIP MAHER
On June 23, the death took place at South Tipperary General Hospital, Clonmel, of Philip Maher, Longfield. Philip had being failing in recent times, although he had unusually fine health for over 90 years. Philip grew up in Longfield and attended school in Ardmayle, where hurling formed an important part of his young life. He later played adult hurling with Suir View and was part of a successful team way back in 1942. He continued active participation in the game through the 40s. About that time, Philip became an apprentice in carpentry with the Kearney brothers in Clonoulty and the enthusiasm of John Kearney for the game in his beloved Clonoulty influenced Philip with an abiding interest in his new found club. Philip would spend a lifetime in the Clonoutly club after and held many positions of importance including club treasurer, Hon Vice President and eventually Hon President, a position he held until to time of his death. His contribution to the club also entailed the making and repairing of hurleys for young players, helping the Board in the umpiring of games and the development of the Club grounds. Little wonder then that Philip was nominated by his club for their Testimonial Award by Cumann na Sean-Ghael in 2004. After completing his apprenticeship, Philip continued to provide a service in his locality, but eventually became employed by South Tipperary County Council, as a permanent member of their Construction and Repair Unit, a position he held until reaching retirement age. Philip Maher had many other interests during his long life. He was an active member of the tennis and social club, organised under the auspices of the late Molly O’Connell-Bianconi at Longfield House in her later life. He also took an active interest in the preservation and restoration of the old Church at Ardmayle and was a member of the local historical society up to the end.
On Tuesday, June 26, Requiem Mass for his soul was concelebrated by Fr. Joe Egan PP, Fr. Thomas Egan PP and Fr. Peter Brennan in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, Boherlahan and interment took place at Ardmayle Cemetery. The large turn-out from both parishes bore testimony to his standing in the community. Sympathy is extended to his bereaved widow Nora; son Pat; daughters Louise and Philomena; daughter-in-law Joan; sons-in-law David and Chris; grand-children Colette, Christopher, Patricia, Matthew and Mark; brother Tom; sister Chrissie; brothers-in-law;-sisters-in-law; nephews; nieces; relatives; neighbours and friends.
