Members of the St Mungo Singers and the parish choir of St Joseph’s Tollcross came together with members of her family and parishioners to celebrate the life of Mrs May Murphy and to say farewell to her on 12 July 2019. May had been a long time member of both choirs and would have been 83 at the end of July.

In his homily, Fr. Brendan Murtagh (standing in for parish priest Canon Andrew MacKenzie who was on holiday) described May, in the words of her family, as a red headed tomboy with a feisty approach to life and not afraid to express her opinions. She was also a much loved and loving wife, mother and grandmother, who made her friends laugh. She will be much missed.

After the funeral Mass the family hosted a reception in the parish hall.
