Johnny Hickey to be remembered at special pre-rally mass 

A memorial mass will take place at St Mary’s Cathedral at 430pm on Saturday afternoon for Johnny Hickey. 

One of the town’s most popular sons died on April 24 last year. 

His loss, most felt by his wife Jennifer, children Alyson, Laura, Conor and much loved son of Charlie and Joan and his sister Charlene, brothers Cathal and Stephen, father-in-law Dermot O’Connor, mother-in-law Marie, is also felt in every aspect of town life. 

His anniversary mass is one week before the Rally of the Lakes and many rally competitors and officials will be in town as part of their final preparations for this year’s event. 

Johnny’s family wanted to hold the mass at a time that allowed these people to attend. 

“Everyone is welcome,” said his father Charlie. 

Johnny’s funeral took place last year in the midst of the pandemic so only family members were allowed attend his memorial mass.
