The sad death of Tommy Murray caught everyone by surprise. It was only two weeks ago 25th October that Tommy and the Meath Writers' Circle, met for the purpose of completing their Christmas DVD. Tommy was in great spirits looking forward to the event he also mentioned that he was to launch a book on behalf of the Junior Writers' Group on 15th November in Navan Library. Tommy was a writer of great reknown with 13 books of short stories and poems to his credit. He also won many literary competitions throughout the country. Tommy was always entering competitions, I like to think that he has entered a Heavenly Competition and has been shortlisted he has simply gone to collect his Heavenly reward.
Deepest condolences to his wife Josephine and family.
