Mikie Sheahan, formerly of Knockdown, who died recently, was buried during the week in Bury Green Cemetery in Cheshunt, UK. He was obviously as popular in his adopted country as he was at home in Knockdown as he had a lovely piece written about him in “The Irish World”. Mick, as he was known in Cuffley Hertfordshire, was a devoted GAA man and had helped many young people who went to London by helping them find accommodation and work. He managed Robert Emmett’s football team during the 80’s and 90’s. He is survived by his wife Mary and daughter Lorraine and sons Michael and Kevin. May he rest in peace.
