“Shenanigan’s Wake”


Seamus Shenanigan was found to be dead on arrival as he hit the floor of the Forcett Inn bar last Tuesday night. In the brief trip from the top of the barstool to the fag-end tray, he was heard to call out the name of the Saviour, obviously conscious of his Maker and the call to eternal life. Had the barstool been higher, he would have added the words “I’m on my way into your arms” after he cried out the name of our Lord. You are invited to honour our recently deceased comrade, Seamus Shenanigan. Whether you knew Seamus as a friend, a neighbour, a hustler on the billiard table, the bloke who was always networking at the bar of the Forcett Inn, or as an organiser with the Federated Union of Clerks and Keyboard Operators, you are welcome one and all. On behalf of his widow, Sheila Shenanigan, it is our pleasure to extend this welcome…
