Summary

Reamonn Gormley - Pic

Reamonn Gormley was a young man whom the Celtic support could very proudly claim as one of our numbers. A boy with a heart of gold, a good Celtic fan, an ex Celtic youth team player, and he went to Thailand to help with the Good Child Foundation/Thai Tims (see link). The children will have loved him and the whole experience will have given everyone such happiness. He did what many of us only wish to do, and we respect him for it.

Sadly on 1 Feb 2011, whilst walking home after watching a Celtic game in Blantyre, he was attacked and stabbed. He died soon after from the wounds. He was only 19 years of age.

Everyone from the Good Child Foundation, Celtic FC, his local community, the whole Celtic support (including online) felt deeply on the loss of this young man. The young children whom Reamon helped in Thailand will definitely have felt his loss.

A commemoration video was made with the Thai Tims for Reamon, which touched everyone, and was shown at Celtic Park during a match. They also sang an amended version of "Just Cant' get enough" for Reamonn.

Our sincere condolences and sympathies to his family.

You'll never walk alone.

RIP

Family pay tribute to murdered Reamonn Gormley as hundreds attend funeral

Feb 20 2011 David Taylor, Sunday Mail

THE parents of murdered teenager Reamonn Gormley paid tribute to him yesterday as more than 700 mourners attended his funeral.

Jim and Ann Gormley described 19-year-old Reamonn as "a wonderful son" as Celtic manager Neil Lennon and chief executive Peter Lawwell joined mourners in Blantyre, Lanarkshire.

Pupils from his old school, John Ogilvie High, formed a guard of honour as Father Brian Lamb told a Requiem Mass in St Joseph's Church how the teenager had touched the lives of people he came into contact with.

In a statement Jim and Ann Gormley said: "Reamonn's family wish to convey their gratitude for all the expressions of sympathy from the community.

"Many tributes have been paid to Reamonn, who was a wonderful son and a loving and caring boy. The family appreciate these tributes.

"Reamonn's parents and brother would like to thank everyone for the support and kindness that they have received.

"They would especially like to mention Blantyre Walk and Rollers for organising a commemorative march and the police for their help during a very difficult time."

Reamonn died on February 1 following an incident outside a pub. So many people turned up at the Glasgow Road church that speakers were put up outside.

Reamonn spent a gap year in Thailand where he taught children English - by singing Celtic songs to them.

Rev Joseph Devine, the Bishop of Motherwell, also led part of the service.

Father Lamb said: Loved: Reamonn Gormley "Reamonn's life touched many, and his death has touched many beyond the confines of those who knew him personally.

"When Blantyre woke up to the news of his death, the whole community was stunned."

Days after Reamonn's death, thousands marched through Blantyre as a mark of respect.

Darren Maxwell, 22, and Barry Smith, 18, both of Blantyre, have been charged with Reamonn's murder.
