Michael ‘Shovelhead’ Sullivan of Castle View Killorglin died suddenly in a motorbike accident on Tuesday. Survived by his wife Linda ‘Lambchops’ Sullivan and his daughter Beatrice ‘Bumblebee’ Sullivan. A keen motorbike enthusiast his bike always started smoothly but he revved the bejesus out of the engine a dozen times anyway. A rigid follower of the proverb I don’t ride bikes to add days to my life, I ride bikes to add life to my days, he was struck by an articulated truck and his lifelong quip that fat bikers bounce better was proved false.  Sadly missed by his family and friends.

Mass Friday at 10.00 am.

Burial afterwards at Killorglin Cemetery.
