The death occurred of our friend and second bass colleague on September 11th last following a long illness borne bravely. Angus, a native of Co. Meath came to live in Belcarra 26 years ago. He worked with the E.S.B. and was heavily involved in the Rural Electrification Scheme He was a keen golfer and for many years was a member of Castlebar Golf Club.

As well as being a valued member of our choir he was also a member of the Belcarra Church Choir. He travelled with us on a number of our overseas trips. His last trip with us was in March 2008 when we travelled to Hochstadt in Germany. He left us at the end of that season but continued to sing with the Church Choir until ill health prevented him from doing so.

He was a man of deep faith, a faith that brought him great support as he coped with the death of his wife Carmel and three of his four sons. Tom, Niall and Robert. He was laid to rest in Guesdian Cemetery on Sept 14th St Ann’s Church Belcarra . The members of Mayo Male Voice Choir extend sympathy to his son Ian, his daughters-in-law, grandchildren and to his sisters Florrie and Mary.
