Shortly before Christmas in 2017, friends for almost 30 years Mattie Murphy and Michael O’Sullivan got married.

Mattie married Michael in order to allow his friend avoid paying inheritance tax on his home in Stoneybatter, Dublin 7.

This morning, Mattie passed away.

Pride of Place Stoneybatter writes:

“This morning after 4am, Stoneybatter lost a true legend, Mattie Murphy.

“As news trickled across the streets of Stoneybatter and beyond, everyone is remembering Mattie, his beautiful smile, kind soul, his infectious laugh and his great style.

“A proud Tipperary man with his heart in Tipp and in Stoneybatter, Mattie died peacefully with his best friend, Michael, by his side. Mattie, a ‘former butler, valet, head of house, telephonist, model, actor, husband, stepfather and utter gentleman.’

“Chats were always welcomed at Lilliput Stores with Mattie having a cuppa and a cig outside and hearty laughs were guaranteed with the storytelling and sharing of anecdotes.

“Mattie had time for anyone that stopped by and along his walks across Stoneybatter including many a furry friend as he loved dogs.

“A great supporter of the Stoneybatter community and attended local events right up to Christmas just gone.

“Mattie loved Stoneybatter Festival and President Michael D was thrilled to meet Mattie at the 2018 Festival.

“At the 2019 Festival, Mattie with his best friend, Michael, featured in local Andrew Kohn’s highly acclaimed Humans of Stoneybatter.”

“Mattie will be reposing at his home 45 Niall Street this Wednesday from approx 1pm and Thursday morning ’til late for all to say their goodbyes and there will be stories and laughter for sure.

“Mattie’s funeral will be taking place Friday at St. John’s Church of Ireland Cathedral in Cashel, Co. Tipperary at 3pm.

“Michael has asked that donations be made to the NCBI in lieu of flowers.

“Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam.”

RIP.

He is accused of causing a nuisance by feeding feral pigeons at his home and its environs, on Manor Street, in Stoneybatter, Dublin 7. It is also alleged by feeding the wild birds he is encouraging the keeping of them at his home address.

He is being prosecuted under the Local Government (Sanitary Services) Acts and was summonsed to court by the council.

“*Stolen Car. I’ve had nothing back from the gardai so I’m giving this a shot. On September 12th, between 6 & 9pm my car was stolen at Stable Lane, Brunswick Street North in Stoneybatter [Dublin 7].

“It’s a Toyota Rav 4 01MH1936 – if you know or have spotted the car anywhere please contact me.”

‘Pigeons of Discontent’.

Dublin 7 Vs flying rodents pigeons!

By Paddy Cahill, who writes:

Taking inspiration from an article by Cónal Thomas in the always excellent Dublin Inquirer, I made a short documentary about the seemingly contentious Pigeons of Stoneybatter…

It looks at the local Pigeon population while we hear some impassioned opinions from some of the neighbourhoods residents….
