He sold stock with “great style and passion.”

GVM Group has announced the death of its “esteemed former colleague and friend” - Philip G. Purcell – Co. Tipperary.

He joined the society in 1970 as a livestock auctioneer and continued to sell dairy stock with “great style and passion” until last summer.

Releasing a statement, a spokesperson for GVM Group said: “In the mid-1970s, Philip played a key role in establishing the GVM Property Auctioneering division and he led and developed the office in Kilmallock for many years until his retirement.”

“Philip was a man of utmost integrity and was always most helpful and gracious to everyone he came in contact with; he will be sorely missed.”

“The Society would like to express its deepest sympathy to his wife Maura, daughter Sonia, sons – Kenneth and Nigel, extended family and friends. Ar dheis Dé do raibh a anam.”
