    He was a kid from Drimnagh who worked as a messenger for Independent newspapers. He died when his bicycle collided with an oil tanker on 14 April 1967. he was on his way to Heuston Station.

      Ah how sad. Think of the exciting life he missed as a young lad growing up at that time. RIP Patrick Farrell.

    That is a really lovely gesture. The loss of a loved one never leaves us, does it?

    RIP Patrick Farrell.

    Patrick died too young
    but at least he had a wonderful, loving, considerate, and thoughtful friend

    A real Forever Friend

    Rest well Patrick Farrell and my condolences to his family and friends and deep respect to his friend who made this tribute and keeps Patrick’s memory alive. It reminds me of the song, Joe Hill, which finishes with the lines:

    “I dreamed I saw Joe Hill last night
    Alive as you and me
    Says I, But Joe, you’re ten years dead
    I never died, says he
    I never died, says he.”
