Death of a Kickboxer

Well known talented Kickboxer Sean Gallagher had his young life cut short this morning (Sat 30/1/10)
Sean (24) and his dad John (59) from Ramelton, were
travelling back from dropping Sean's girlfriend to the airport on the
Slab Road in Burt, Co Donegal.

The pair came from the small community of Ramelton in Co. Donegal.

The two car collision happened in icy conditions on a notoriously
dangerous stretch of road at the junction of the N13 and the Slab Road
in Burt.

Driver John Gallagher and son Sean, who was the front seat passenger,
were killed instantly.
Sean was very well known throughout the Kickboxing community in Ireland and was the assistant instructor for the Donegal Black Dragon Kickboxing Club under head coach Joe Wilson.
Sean leaves behind his heartbroken mother Hilary and three sisters Aisling, Aoife and Ailish.
He will be deeply missed by everyone who knew him especially his coach and mentor Joe Wilson and his wife Amy and all his friends and clubmates in Black Dragon Kickboxing.
God bless you young man and may you and your dad John rest in peace.

Sawatdee Khrup,

No words can really offer comfort to those who have lost loved ones especially as sudden and tragic as this.

Life deals out such cruel blows sometimes and we are left with thoughts of why?
For those of us with our beliefs then we have some comfort but it still does not take away the shock and pain of loss.

We always have our memories though and it is my personal belief that we honour our loved ones through these. Remembering the times together.

I don't know Sean & his Father or his family but it does not stop me from feeling especially as Sean was a part of our 'Martial' family.

So I humbly ask his family to accept my sincere condolences on such tragic and sad news and to please accept the words below which I had written under similar circumstances - God Bless



"Emptiness, sadness, anger, blame

To lose someone causes so much pain.

I try so hard not to cry

And yet I keep asking why?

Were you called? was it your time?

If I had these answers would it all be fine?

The sad truth is you are now gone,

And I know I must be strong and carry on.

I thank you for sharing your time with me,

You will always be here, in my memory."

Sean fought one of my lads last septmeber in a most entertaining fight. a true sportsman and gentleman and had a great future ahead of him. He will be sorely missed up and down the country.

Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.
(Psalm 37:37)
