As seen in the Francis O'Neill Club Newsletter
It's with heavy heart we inform you that Mickey Rahilly (aka "Magic Feet") so well-loved by everyone at FON, died July 3, 2019.
Of course, we will remember him for his humor, his love of all things Kerry, his famous battering steps, his hair and beard shaving for St. Baldrick's, his Buck Set dancing, and him teaching his grandchildren and great grandchildren to perform the Brush Dance for us during Tea Time. He's probably doing some shenanigans at the Upstairs Ceili right now.
Please be in prayer for Mickey's family and friends during this difficult time.
Here is information Mary Theresa Rahilly posted on Facebook:
