The Daniel O'Connell School Committee was deeply saddened by the sudden death of our friend and colleague, Maurice (Junior) Murphy on the 17th June 2021.

Junior was treasurer of the Daniel O'Connell School company and a member of the organising committee. 'We owe a great debt to Junior Murphy', commented Maurice Bric, Academic director of the School. 'Without Junior's support, it would not have been possible to establish such a successful School. We will greatly miss his wisdom, wise counsel and organising ability.' Mary O'Connor, on behalf of the organising committee, expressed sincere condolences to his family on their great loss.

As part of this year's School, Maurice Fitzgerald and GAA colleagues will pay tribute to Junior Murphy on Friday 22nd October at 5.00 in Con Keating Memorial Park.
