Just weeks after the death of his brother Vincent, Eamon McGrath joined him and the rest of his family as he passed away peacefully. Eamon was the last of the McGrath family that were known as Pat McGraths. Four brothers Pat, John, Ned and Murty have left a legacy of McGraths in the Cregmore area and Eamon was proud of his inheritance. An outstanding hurler in his youth Eamon was a key player with Cregmore before he emigrated to Canada. On returning to Ireland, Eamon went to live in Salthill but travelled to Cregmore almost every day to his brother Vincent and to other family members. Eamon loved to help out with the odd jobs around the house and rarely missed his visits to Cregmore until illness prevented him from the journey in recent times.
The remains of Eamon McGrath were removed from Lackagh Mortuary Chapel to the Church of Our Lady of Knock, Lackagh. Following Requiem Mass celebrated by Fr Des Walsh, P P Lackagh, burial took place in Lackagh Cemetery. Eamon is survived by his nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
