‘HE ALWAYS HAD A SMILE ON HIS FACE’ – TRIBUTE TO TADHG CULBERT

first_imgThe news has come through this afternoon of the sad passing of our great friend, Cllr. Tadhg Culbert. Though a native of Tipperary, Tadhg was a Letterkenny man through and through. He was sent to Letterkenny with the P&T as it was back then and spent 40 years as an employee with An Post.Being a keen hurler, he first joined St. Eunan’s as a hurling player in the 70’s. He immersed himself in Letterkenny life, marrying Hilda Flood and becoming a long serving member of Letterkenny Town Council. He was a passionate follower of first Neil T. Blaney before becoming a great friend, supporter and ally to Dr. James McDaid and Fianna Fáil.Over the years he retained a keen interest in sport, in particular Tipperary hurling, St. Eunan’s GAA club, Letterkenny Rovers and the Irish football team. Tadhg was always a generous contributor to St. Eunan’s GAA club from his council bursaries and his unwavering support, and that of his colleagues on Letterkenny Town council in our recent Boundary dispute will long be remembered by our club. Tadhg was known to enjoy a pint and was a regular in Blake’s Bar, McClafferty’s, The Orchard and the Central where there was always a good story and some good, honest advice to be had.He was a good friend, and I will never forget him, I will remember him with a smile on his face.To Hilda, Andrew and Lisa and his wider circle of family and friends, we extend our deepest sympathies.Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam. May He Rest In Peace.
