In a post on Facebook Michael said : “Our beautiful Mother Collette went to her eternal home at 8.28am this morning.
Thank you to everyone for their love and prayers especially over the last few days.”
Mrs English (neé Abbot) was a native of Castledermot where she had lived all her life. She was very proud of Michael’s achievements and along with her husband Pat she would go to all his concerts and gigs.
Funeral arrangements to follow.
Collette is survived by her husband Pat, son Michael and daughters Patrina and Olivia.
May she rest in peace.
