The Late John O'Brien
It was with great sadness that we heard the news of the death of John O'Brien of Millmount and the members and executive of Mullingar Shamrocks extend deepest sympathy to the O’Brien family. Our sympathies are extended to John’s wife Mary, his son Declan, and daughters Ursula, Elaine (Thornton), Denise (Walshe), Catherine (Smyth), Niamh and Anne-Marie (Swarbrigg); to his sisters Peg (Farrell) and Josie (O’Sullivan), daughter-in-law Jean, sons-in-law Matt, Alan, Andy, Ray and John. We also send our sympathy to John’s grandchildren, to his nieces and nephews, and to members of his extended family, neighbours and many friends.
A private family funeral will take place on Saturday at 11 a.m. and may be viewed on the live webcam at www.mullingarparish.ie.
John O’ Brien was a loyal Mullingar Shamrocks supporter and in the glory days of the Street League was centrally involved with John Kelly and Malachy Keaveney in organising and coaching the Millmount street league team when many of the stars of the 1980s-1990s developed their football skills. John was involved with Shamrocks’ underage teams throughout the 80s alongside friend and neighbour John Kelly. Declan O’Brien represented Mullingar Shamrocks at all levels from underage to senior and John’s grandchildren Ellie and Billy Swarbrigg now continue the family tradition in the club as part of the Na SeamrÓigí group.
