I have learned from the Chain Gang CC website that the legendary Jimmy Duffy has passed on.

I first came to know of Jimmy in a Currow CC leisure cycle some years back. He had a very old bike, was cycling on bermuda shorts and had a ragged leather Jacket. Every one there found it difficult to size him up, he had a body that looked like he had worked a hard life and at times he seemed very out of place, that is until he sat up on the bicycle. After the leisure cycle was over and after eating his fill he announced that he still had some miles to go as not only had he to cycle back home to Blennerville but first he had to cycle in the direction of Killarney to get duck eggs. A character and example of determination of old, the likes of which I don’t know can be seen again. May he rest in peace.

Funeral Details can be found here.
