Tommy, use to call into me at Hegarty's Music Centre every day to see what was new in stock of the latest LP records and would keep the helper in the van waiting up to half an hour when I mentioned this to him he would say there's no rush. No matter I where you met him, he would always stop for a yarn. We had some great nights in Rodden's Bar with him and the rest of the boys and girls. Rest In Peace my friend.

Tommy, safe journey.  We will all miss you and will always remember you and the good times and the 'wild' times, e.g.  The Fleadh Cheoil in Ennis 1977 or when Pa took you up to Roddens for your first visit or 'that' game of poker with Jim Dyke.  Great memories.   Love to all your friends and family in Ireland and the U.S.A.   Goodbye, for now.  Brian Kavanagh.

RIP Tommy. Happy memories of you (with the hippie hair and cowboy boots) often stopping the VW pickup to allow Edward and the rest of us schoolkids pile onboard for a breezy ride home. You had a natural generosity and likeability that was common to all members of your family, from your dad downward.
