I lived in Ireland for a good number of my childhood years, so his is a name that really evokes memories for me. Anyway, that's another legend gone. Rest In Peace, Tommy.

Tommy lived in Dover, New Hampshire for many years. Here's another obituary.

His son Shane was friends with some mutual friends of mine out in Dover, and has been busy carrying on the family tradition with his brothers for the past couple of decades. They're pretty great.
