Martin had a deep interest in politics from a very young age, and Martin’s election to the County Council in 2014 and subsequently elected Mayor of Clonmel was his proudest moment. He carried out his brief to a very high standard.

He had a deep faith in God and was always helping with his local church and with the Waterford & Lismore Diocese representing the local area.
Martin was predeceased by his father Sean a number of years ago.
Martin’s remains were removed from Goatenbridge Community Hall to Ballybacon church last Saturday and following requiem Mass he was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery. R.I.P.
