Speaking of Mr. McGrath, Cllr. Pratt commented: “I am deeply sorry to hear of the passing of Danny McGrath, one of Dungarvan’s best known ambassadors. On behalf of the Councillors and staff of Waterford City & County Council, I send my deepest condolences to his partner and family on their tragic loss.”
The Mayor continued: “Danny was well known to all here in Dungarvan and indeed throughout Waterford and the Irish diaspora. He was the chief organiser of the successful McGrath Clan Gathering which brought visitors here from all around the world. He was a keen photographer, contributed frequently to newspapers and was a great supporter of Waterford sports. He was at the centre of so much positivity for Dungarvan … he will be sorely missed.”
The Book of Condolence will be open in the Civic Offices, Dungarvan at the following times: Today, 23rd December, until 4pm.
Given the time of year, there is also an electronic form available for those who wish to express their sympathy with Danny’s family. This can be accessed here: http://bit.ly/DanMcGrathRIP
