His family and many friends in the Monaghan town area were shocked and saddened by the death of Tommy McMahon, Corvally, Silverstream and formerly of 27 Dr. McKenna Tce., Monaghan. Tommy, who was aged 69, died suddenly and unexpectedly at his home on Thursday 28th May 2020. There is widespread sympathy with his wife Grainne, son Fergal and daughter Julie, sisters Delly, Perth, Western Australia and Geraldine McCormick and her husband Pat, Rockcorry, nephews, nieces, relatives and friends.

Tommy was born in Clones but grew up with his family on the Pound Hill. He loved ‘The Hill’ and its people. The McMahon family were one of the first to move to Dr. McKenna Tce. when the houses were built in the early 1950’s. In his youth he enjoyed playing soccer with his mates from the area out on the ‘green’. He was a member of the Hill Rovers team and had great memories of playing against other local teams in the summer leagues at Belgium Park.

Tommy was a lifelong supporter of Liverpool F.C. and was looking forward with great enthusiasm to witnessing Liverpool lifting the premiership title for the first time in 30 years. He was also a keen horse racing fan and attended many race meeting over the years. Up until a few years ago he was well known as a local Taxi Driver and was highly regarded by his many customers. Above all else, Tommy was a family man and wanted only the very best for his children.

In line with Government restrictions Tommy’s funeral Mass took place in St. Macartan’s Cathedral, Monaghan at 11am on Friday 29th May, followed by private burial in St. Joseph’s Cemetery, Latlurcan at 2pm. Many of his friends and neighbours gathered along the roadside leaving his home at Corvally and outside the cemetery walls to pay their respects as Tommy was brought to his final resting place.
