Prior to Thailand, Daragh lived in Majorca, Spain, for 12 years, where he still has numerous friends.

Sleep well big fella and watch over Kay and us while sipping Hendrink’s & Tonics, and as the Irish saying goes, “We’re just like everyone else, just smarter, better looking and more fun.” Have fun our dear friend, memories will be cherished.

Cremation ceremony will be held at Cherngtalay temple on Monday, June 06, 2021 at 1:30pm.
