Tributes following deaths of solicitors in Dublin

Colleagues and friends of the late Peter Crawford, a lawyer at Phillip Lee LLP, have expressed their heartfelt sadness following his recent death.

Peter was with the firm for almost ten years, joining as an intern and most recently becoming a senior associate.

The Phiilip Lee announcement said: “Peter was an excellent lawyer, and his intelligence and good judgment were highly valued by all of us who had the pleasure of working with him.

“Those who knew him well were familiar with his great sense of humour.”

The Balbriggan native will be buried tomorrow (Tuesday), in Tamnaherin Cemetery, after his funeral Mass at St Peter & Paul’s Church.

Meanwhile, the funeral of solicitor John Walsh, who died after a collision between his bike and a car at Kinsealy on Sunday 18 February, heard warm tributes to the AIB lawyer.


“John lived by the motto ‘he who dares, wins’ and it brought us so much joy,” his widow Olivia Walsh told mourners at St Sylvester’s Church in Malahide on Friday (23 February).

The former Belvedere and UCD student, who was in his 40s, was taken to Beaumont Hospital with serious injuries following the collision and died later that day.

The father-of-three  was a keen cyclist and a former captain of UCD Cycling Club.
