and his family than I did with my own cousins.
and they are all happy memories.
I had my first Big Mac with Willie after going shopping with Mrs Leahy
and Willie. I had my first pint of Guinness with Willie,
well the first one that I enjoyed anyway. At that time the two loves in Willies life were
Guinness and Snooker. He loved Jimmy White the snooker player possibly because of his
fast passionate exciting gameplay , as opposed to someone like Steve Davis
who was a bit like watching paint dry. Willie loved nothing more than
going for a pint of guinness and a game of snooker.
Willie and me were friends when he lived in skerries from the ages of 4 to around 11.
We got up to all sorts of shenanigans together.I had the most fun with Willie.
He was a generous and selfless person who never put himself first.
At the time in skerries there were five lads that used to hang around together.
Willie , Me , Michael Woods and Kevin Woods and Emmet Clinton. I contacted
Emmet but he couldn’t make the memorial mass. The other two lads I’m not in contact with
but I may come across them and if I do we will surely have a whiskey for Willie.
