Derek Maloney of Shannon, County Limerick passed away suddenly on Thursday evening. Survived by his wife Marie, his son Mark and his two daughters Hanna and Jennifer. He was a well-known member of the community whose famous Christmas light display drew people from miles around to dwell in a grotesque stultifying orgy of capitalism with the obligatory all donations to charity spiel trotted out to give the disgusting display of bourgeois fantasy a thin veneer of respectability in order to hide the fact that some of the worst people in society come disguised as family and friends partaking in a metaphorical dick measuring contest where every participant loses both literally and figuratively. Sadly missed by family and friends Derek died when a small aircraft mistook his house for the nearby airport and landed in his sitting room. May he rest in peace.

Requiem Mass Saturday at 11 am.

Burial afterwards in Limerick Cemetery.
