Many people in Wexford were deeply saddened to learn of the unexpected death on August 4 of the well-known and popular Tesco employee Dermot Murray.

Dermot, aged 44 of Ballymurn Lodge in Ballymurn and formerly of Oliver Bond House in Dublin 8, is survived and sadly missed by his beloved wife Tanyna, proprietor of the Hair Room on Commercial Quay in Wexford; his daughters Zoe May and Holly; his brothers Alec and Willie; his brothers-in-law; sisters-in-law; nieces and nephews; his cousins and a wide circle of friends.

The Dubliner and adopted Wexfordman will be remembered with great affection as a loving husband and father and a loyal friend. Dermot was a lifelong Liverpool fan, a motorbike enthusiast and proud Dublin man.

The Removal of the Remains took place from Paddy Mulligan's funeral home in the Faythe where Mass was said by Fr. Jim Finn, parish priest of Crossabeg and Ballymurn.

The attendance included a large gathering of mourners including his work colleagues from Tesco in Wexford town, his neighbours and friends from Ballymurn and relatives and friends from Dublin.

Dermot's funeral Mass took place in the Augustinian Church in John's Lane, Thomas Street, Dublin, followed by cremation in Mount Jerome cemetery.

Dermot's wife Tanyna and their daughters Zoe May and Holly would like to express their profound thanks to all their friends and neighbours in Ballymurn and Wexford for the outpouring of support and assistance they received following his death.

The family would also like to thank Dermot's work colleagues in Tesco 'whose friendship and support is deeply appreciated' and his friends and family from Oliver Bond House in Dublin and all those who have helped them since his sad passing.

'Words cannot express our thanks enough,' said a family member on behalf of Tanya and the girls.

They also expressed their appreciation of Fr. Finn who travelled to Dublin to say Mass in the Augustinian Church and was a source of great support to the Murray family in the days following his death.
