    Philip passed away peacefully at Cork University Hospital on 11th October, 2022. Beloved husband of the late Ita (née O'Connell) and much loved father of Niall and Ciara, daughter-in-law Ann-Maire, extended family and friends.

    Posted on this site for some time as Gunner.

    Proud to have considered him a friend, an instructor and a mentor. There was nothing motorcycle related he didn't know. His home in Watergrasshill was often a sub-HQ for 3 Cav, and later 31RCS. His neighbours were quite used to convoys of armoured vehicles rolling up outside his door in the middle of an ex. Usually when a roadside repair was required, because Phil had the mancave of dreams.
