Cumin McDonagh (1924-2006)

This morning I attended the funeral of Cumin McDonagh father of Siobhain McDonagh MP(my local MP) and Margaret McDonagh. The service in itself was very moving especially Bridge Over Troubled Water and the eulogy by David Cairns MP(and former Merton councillor) about his life and his many traits.

Cumin had lived a very full life, it is clear to see that he was a great inspiration to both his daughters in achieving what they have within the Labour Party. Having left Ireland at a young age(like my own parents)to seek a better life he knew the value of hard work in life and the importance of family. He will be sorely missed.

May he rest in peace.
