Felix McGuire


Dooreil, Ballycroy

He was born to parents Thomas McGuire and Ellen Murray in 1930. He came from a family of ten children, Bridgie, Anthony, Katy, Mary, Bernard, Maggie, Thomas, Patrick and Florrie  who are now all deceased; Felix was the last to be born and the last to die.  
He was a very intelligent man who had a great interest and love for nature, the land and animals. He took over the family farm and continued his life living and working on the farm where he reared stock, sowed vegetables and cut the turf – a very self-sufficient man and a great neighbour.
A quiet, unassuming man, Felix was also a very knowledgeable man. He developed this knowledge, wisdom and conversational material from being an avid reader of local and national newspapers, and having a keen interest in local, national and world politics.
Felix spent the last few months of his life at St Brendans in Mulranny, he was very happy there and he was very well cared for.  We were told he was particularly good at the quizzes.
He will be sadly missed by his nephews and nieces, cousins and neighbours. May his gentle soul rest in peace
