  9. Dear Uncle Tommy, one of my favorite memories of you is when you surprised me by calling me from the middle of Times Square on your first trip to Manhattan and said “I think I’m near your office.” And you were! Within minutes you’d climbed three flights of stairs and were sitting opposite me. I was so chuffed you’d come to visit. From there we spent the whole day together. I’ll never forget it.

    Then there was Reading, a trip I so needed to make for me and Mary who I know you missed so much. I’m so very grateful you came with me. We ended that night dancing to the Waterboys, once you’d ripped the jukebox controls out of my hands (sorry, Tina). I’ll never forget your smile and your laugh. I’m thinking you and Mary looking down on us all with a mighty grin. Night night.

  10. Our heartfelt condolences to Cathy, Fiona, Thomas and Catherine, from all the McEnteggart family x

  11. It so saddens me to write this but I have so many memories of you I can’t even put into words, throughout the years I always remember you was my Uncle Tom. I promise to always be there for Cathy Thomas Fiona & Catherine & Thomas-Aidan. Thank you for being YOU always and my memories of you will never fade but one stands out mainly which a busy very Sunday I think all Ireland and we sat at that bar from day to night and had plenty of laughs with me and my sisters what a beautiful day it was full of laughs and laughs, also the prince of Wales and Preston as kids will never forget it, so many memories, Never forget you Uncle Tom. Rest in peace and I will NEVER forget you❤️ Rest easy

  12. Your warmth and energy was phenomenal from the first time I was introduced to you and your wonderful family. Such a welcoming and kind soul, you will be dearly missed by all who were lucky enough to meet you. All the fun times you shared with family and friends will live long in the memory. My heart goes out to your family who share your special Flannery kindness and sense of fun. It is clear you made a remarkable impact on the local community and far beyond. A true legend. Love, Zoe x

  13. Tom we are heart broken at your sudden passing. You were a gentleman with an infectious smile and a hearty laugh. My fondest memories of you Tom are when Thomas and Eoghain were at St Bernadette’s when most Monday morning I was coming behind you because we were summonsed by the head teacher as our boys were up to devilment. Eoghain has very fond memories of his trip back to Mayo during his school holidays with you and Thomas. Tom there are too many great memories to write down here but we will remember them all when we think of you. You will be sadly missed and life will be darker without your presence. You were a wonderful family man and looked out for everyone. Our deepest sympathy to your amazing wife Cathy (Cait), daughters FIona and Catherine, son Thomas and grandson Thomas, son in law Kenneth and your extended family .
    A special friend is hard to find, hard to lose and impossible to forget. True friends are never apart maybe in distance but not in the heart. Rest in peace Tom.

  14. To Cathy, Fiona, Catherine, Thomas, Kenneth and little Thomas. So sorry to hear of the passing of your wonderful husband, father and grandfather Tom. We have so many great memories of all the fun days and nights in Luton and Flannerys Bar. We will never forget you. May you rest in peace.

  15. My sincerest condolences to Cathy and family, at this difficult time. He will be missed very much. May you rest in peace Tom.

  16. On behalf of Irish World, I offer sincere condolences to Cathy (Cait) and family. We will always remember your support and kindness.
    Flannery’s Pub in Wembley has always had a warm welcome for Irish and wider community, across all age groups. Happy memories.
    Will keep you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

  17. What can I say Tom, other than … ‘It Were Him That Done It’.

    Far too many memories to cover off here, but my most memorable has to be the Mumford & Son concert ❤️ At Hyde Park. What a day of singing, dancing, laughter and fun! I will always cherish that day.

    Among other memories would have to be of us girls coming on the trips to the Rugby & the races, the numerous Flannery gatherings (Christmas being THE event of the year), trips to Ireland and multiple late nights at The Prince, Felbridge, Flannerys & out in Luton. Laughter always followed you.

    Always greeted with a big grin, bellowing ‘Hello Hooley’ and a hug that was like being clotheslined because you were so tall and strong!

    A gentle giant ❤️

    Incredible dad & grandad and you will be missed by many due to your kindness, your love and how much you cared for others.

    I really do miss you Tom and we’ll be here to support the family.

    Cathy, Fi, Catherine, Thomas, Kenneth and little Thomas, thinking of you all at this sad sad time. Love to your all xxx

  20. To Cati, Fiona, Catherine, Thomas, wee Thomas, Kenneth and your extend family may you all find love and comfort knowing what a wonderful and kind hearted man Tom was. He had an infectious laugh, a big heart and was a fiercely proud family man. My fondest memory will forever be him telling me he’d get his grandson in a Galway jersey one day! Tom welcomed me and so many others with a friendly smile into his home and pub. A wonderful man who will always be missed but always thought of with warmth and love.

    Sending all the family love, strength and peace
