To the McManus family on behalf of my wife and I all I can say it is a big loss. I had many a great day / time with Tom, Cheltenham races won't be the same. The service was beautiful and a credit to a great man whom we had a lot of time for. Rest in peace Tom. God bless Patrick & Debra Hourigan

A beautiful service. My thoughts and prayers to the McManus family. I was very lucky to grow up with Tom and his family, seeing first hand the trajectory of his star. While we can no longer see it from our vantage point on earth, heaven got a little brighter.

For a man I have known for near 30 years but saw so infrequently, I feel such great loss, and my thoughts and sympathies are so with you Geraldine, Victoria, Aiden, and family. Tom was a rare breed of the living who really had an influence on me, on all of us: a fair-minded man with integrity; a leader; a laugh; and, a legend. What a beautiful sending off. All of my love to you, Lawrence

Thinking of Geraldine and the McManus Family at this very sad time
The many people, very much including Chris Donelon, who worked with Tom at J F Donelon over the many of the 70s and 80s, will never forget his tremendous combination of sheer hard work and his great sense of humour!
God speed Tom-you were surely one of a kind

Sandra & Peter Buckland
What a beautiful service befitting a beautiful man inside and out. What a heart warming genuine and caring couple you were.
Well done to all readers especially Madelaine and Connie for being so lovely and brave and to Victoria for having the courage to talk so eloquently of the father she and Aiden so obviously adored. Last but not least Geraldine for the effort put into Tom's funeral and making it so personal and wonderful. The Irish music was so refreshing and bright and your man would have loved it. God Bless you Geraldine in the weeks ahead when your loss will leave a void in your life which knowing you, you will fill with things to help others as you have already done over the years. You complimented Tom in the very best of ways. Always here for you and love always Sandra xx
