The funeral Mass for our President, Danny McGuinness took place yesterday, Thursday the 2nd Feb, 2017, at the Church of the Holy Rosary, Castlebar at 11 am. The Mass was well attended by his family and former work colleagues and of course the Mayo Male Voice Choir was in attendance. In addition to the usual hymns we sang A Mhuire Mháthair and Homeward Bound (words and music by Marta Keen, arranged by Jay Althouse). At the end of the service as Danny’s remains were removed from the Church a beautiful rendering of ‘I did it my way’ was performed by tenor choir member Joseph Garvey who accompanied himself on the piano.
An obituary will follow.
