In Tribute to a True Gentleman – the late Paddy Mulcahy of Cork City

A special Tribute Stone has in September 2011 been put in place at Mushera marking the location where Paddy Mulcahy of Cork City – a superb teacher, splendid husband and father – sadly went to his Eternal Reward while participating with others in a walk on Mushera Mountain on Sunday, 13th September 2009.   Paddy’s beloved wife, Terry, wishes to express her heartfelt gratitude to the numerous people (many from the Millstreet area) who accorded much appreciated support and comfort not only on that very sad day but in the days and months that followed.   I had the privilege of having known Paddy in his work as a magnificent teacher in the world of special needs and thereafter as Principal Teacher.    A true gentleman of the very highest calibre, Paddy’s wonderfully cheerful approach to life tremendously uplifted the spirits of all who met him.   We thank Terry for sharing this photograph with us and we feel certain that when people will pass this beautiful panoramic setting – an area which Paddy so loved to visit – they will say a special prayer in memory.   Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam dílis.   (S.R.)

We thank our website colleague, Michael, for accessing a special relevant article we featured in 2009:   At the time we wrote a small article on his passing in our area. You can see the article here.
