Funeral to be held for murdered Limerick man in Manchester


The funeral will be held this Sunday for a County Limerick man who died in a fatal assault in Manchester last month.

Thomas Murphy, 42, was found fatally injured in a house in Beverly Road, south Manchester, on the evening of Saturday September 24.

Originally from Clonee, Ballyagran, Mr Murphy had lived in England for several years but regularly returned home to Limerick to visit family and friends.

The remains of the father-of-two lay at O’Malley Funeral Home in Charleville this Saturday evening ahead of his funeral mass at St Michael’s Church, Ballyagran at 11am this Sunday.

Mr. Murphy is survived by his parents Rose and Joe; brothers Darragh and Padraigh; daughters Darcey and Lily and their mother Sarah; other relatives and friends in Ireland and the UK.

Following Sunday’s funeral mass, interment will take place at Colmanswell Cemetery.

Manchester Police opened a murder investigation into Mr Murphy’s death and a young man was subsequently arrested and charged.

Stephen Owusu, 22, appeared at Manchester Crown Court days after the fatal assault charged with the murder of Mr Murphy.

He was taken into custody and will be tried next year.
