SHEM MURPHY - Shem Murphy, 40 Newpark, Kilkenny was buried on Monday, which was his 58th birthday. The affable Shem lost his battle with cancer on Friday after being admitted earlier that day to St Luke's Hospital. Many of his family are involved with Dicksboro and there was a strong representation from the club at the removal and funeral Mass. Shem was a kind person who never complained about his illness and put the rest of us to shame such was the courage with which he bore it. He liked to play a game of cards in his favourite pub, the Nore Bar. He will be sadly missed by all who came into contact with him. He is survived by his mother Nancy; brothers Seán, Tony and Robbie, sisters-in-law, nephews and nieces, cousins, extended family and friends. He was buried in St. Kieran's Cemetery on Monday after requiem Mass in St John's.
