"We Will remember them"




With regret, we wish to inform our members  of the passing of Michael Duffy.
Who died on Tuesday 29th April 2014 R.I.P. 
Mick was a Branch member for many years and very supportive of the Branch activities. A generous and a willing man in every way. A helping hand on a 24 hour stand by.
Mick served with the Irish Guards in the late fifties to early sixties. On joining the Irish Guards Association, Republic of Ireland. He accepted the office as the welfare officer. A role that suited Mick as the qualities he possessed and his strong Christian attitude towards his fellow man ticked all the boxes for such an important office. Mick is well known by many "MICKS" for his perpetual smile, wit and his famous golden handshake. With these combined qualities he has brought a vast amount of creditability and new friends to the Irish Guards Association. 
We have lost a true and valued friend,. A friend to many people that we may never know of. To his family we extend our sincere condolences our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

                                      FAREWELL TO A TRUE IRISH GUARDSMAN
                                               MISSION ACCOMPLISHED
                                                   "QUIS SEPARABIT"
